The Google car: new opportunities

Although the concept of the driverless car is fabulous, the design remains rather conventional. We believe the new car configuration makes it possible to break out of the traditional car set-up. We got inspired by the BMW Isetta and took this iconic automobile from the fifties as a starting point to build further on the concept.

The influence of patents on 3D printing evolution

Do patents stimulate or slow down growth? The modern patent system was created to help stimulate innovation. A patent gives its owner the right to stop others from using his invention for a limited period of time, thus providing him the opportunity to benefit from his R&D investments. This security should convince individuals and organisations to investments in R&D and therefore stimulate innovation.
