"A couple of my friends thought I had been a little too active towards the ladies lately and wanted to punish me," Stian Ytterdahl said.

Gear  |  News


In 1992, Amanda Boxtel was paralyzed from the waist down in a catastrophic skiing accident. Doctors told her she'd never walk again. But 22 years later, thanks to the world's first 3D printed exoskeleton developed by 3D Systems and EksoBionics, she's able to stand up and move around on her own. Boxtel's new exoskeleton, the first of its kind, was custom-built for her. Designers from 3D Systems scanned her body, digitizing the contours of her spine, thighs, and shins, a process that helped them mold the robotic suit to her. Then they combined the suit with a set of mechanical actuators and controls made by EksoBionics. The result, said 3D Systems, is the first-ever "bespoke" exoskeleton.

“The aim is to prevent traffic accidents. The spray is being tested on fur at the moment, but it may be even more effective on the antlers, because they are seen from every side,” says Anne Ollila, chairwoman of the Reindeer Herders Association.
As many as 4,000 reindeer die in traffic accidents every year in Finland, the Finnish Game and Fisheries Research Institute says.
