Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Jodhpur has developed a metal 3D printer based on the Direct Energy Deposition (DED) technology with the objective is to reduce the cost of Metal 3D printers . it is ideal for printing fully functional parts for a range of industries, like aerospace, defence, automotive, oil and gas, and general engineering, among others.

Sorry for the off-topic and promise won't do it again.

I just wanted to post three AVs for all of us to understand where we stand and how we may recover or not in future.


The time stamp 12:00 is relevant to us especially the Quote at 12:43.



The real war is happening here.

Few Tag Words: USA Chips Act, TSMC USA, Intell Foundry Services.

Thank you for sharing this.


"If Transfer of Technology fails to take hold and Innovation cannot be self-generated then what may result into is uncontrollable and irreversible addiction to imported technology"

That quote from first video was on the point.


I think this applies to almost all technologically backwards countries aka developing countries. They all are addicted to easily available highly sophisticated technology from first world countries. They all lack will power to create their own innovative technology. They are all addicted to imported tech like drug addicts. When a new technology emerges, developing countries including india starts thinking about importing it at any cost to stay technologically relevant.

This behaviour is contasted in first world or developed countries. When they first hear about new technology, their first response is to replicate it and improve it using their own talent and resources. They see tech imports as a flaw in their own mental abilities. Maybe this mentality of theirs keeps them at the cutting edge of technological advancements.

There are many things that define technological advancement of a country but that quote really made me think about psychological aspacts of nations regarding tech developement.

researchers at IISER have developed a rare ionic macroporous metal-organic framework (MOF), which can effectively capture uranium from sea water . They managed to capture 96.3 per cent of uranium within two hours, which is in sharp contrast to the other existing adsorbent.

Did some basic calculations.
Lets assume we need 200 Tons of Uranium for 1GW Nuclear plant[citation]. The news articles says they can get 28.2 mg per gram of their special material in 25 days. This means 0.48 Metric Tons of the special material is required to generate enough Uranium to power a single 1GW plant. Our consumption is at about 140GW[citation]. Depending on the cost of producing the special material and the rate of production, it might not be viable for normal consumption. Although, for military purpose, I think it would be great!.

For the first time in India, researchers in the city have successfully 3D-printed an artificial cornea and transplanted it into a rabbit eye.

Starting at 8:06, a report on an innovative helmet for motorcyclists, developed by an Indian company, which purifies the outside air, then sends the clean air to the rider. Already available throughout India, evidently.
