Watch the World's Largest 3D-Printer Spit Out a 25-Foot Boat

If you're shopping for a 3D printer, a key consideration is bed size; what's the largest object you'd realistically need to print? For the University of Maine's Advanced Structures and Composites Center, size limitations aren't so much of an issue. That's because they've got a gantry-style 3D printer that can spit out pieces that are 22x100. Twenty-two by 100 feet. And ten feet tall.Here it is in action, printing out a one-piece, 25-foot-long, 5,000-pound boat: For their troubles, UMaine won th...

Little Sal Sour Ale

Made using low-growing Maine blueberries exclusively, Allagash Brewing Company’s first-ever blueberry fruited beer is subtly sour and sweet but perfectly balanced. They added one pound of fruit per gallon of beer (both pediococcus and lactobacillus during the aging process) and let this beer sit in single oak red wine barrels for six months. The result is a frothy, champagne-like beer with distinct tartness yet plenty …

Will Robert Indiana’s Home Ever Become The Museum He Envisioned?

The Maine island where Indiana found a home isn’t quite into it. “There are concerns here on the island about just what an Indiana museum might entail. Who would it attract? What sort of people would be running it? How might the character of the island, which already doubles in population when the ‘summer people’ arrive, be affected?” – The New York Times

Clever Tool Design, Bold Entrepreneurship: The Story of the American-Made LogOX

There's a reason that only a tiny proportion of the population successfully launches their own product design. In addition to correctly identifying user needs and getting the design right, you also have to nail the manufacturing, the marketing, the distribution network, the customer service. It takes design skills, patience, research, networking and a whole lot of hard work.Meet the Roberts family. They're three members of that tiny proportion.

A solar-powered home in Maine rises above the sand dunes on wooden stilts

Portland-based firm Caleb Johnson Studio has unveiled a beautiful cedar-clad home elevated off the ground on stilts so that the natural “landscape is allowed to flow under the house.” The solar-powered home, named “In the Dunes,” was designed to not only protect the natural dune terrain, but the resilient design also reduces the risk of damage caused by potential coastal flooding. Located in the coastal town of Wells in southern Maine, the three-story home is built on sand dunes overlooking th...

Net-zero Maine house is designed to blend into the forest with age

When the owner of a beautiful natural site in Falmouth, Maine tapped Portland-based architectural studio Kaplan Thompson Architects to design his house, it was clear from the beginning that the forested surroundings would play a major role in the design. Not only did the architects use a predominately timber palette to bring the woods indoors, but the two-story home was also engineered to produce all of its own energy to reduce impact on the environment. Dubbed the Blackwood House, the net-zero...

Eastern Puma officially extinct, allows for mountain lion reintroduction

The eastern puma, which used to range from Quebec and Manitoba to South Carolina and Illinois, is now officially extinct, said Officials with the United States Fish and Wildlife Service. The government agency has also removed the cougars from endangered species list. Taking the eastern pumas off the endangered list will enable eastern states, such as New York, to reintroduce western pumas, also called mountain lions, into the region. The last eastern puma killed in the wild was in Maine over 80...

A Native American Tribe Revives Its Culture With The Help Of Old Wax-Cylinder Recordings

“In 1890, just months before the murder of some hundred and fifty Lakota Indians at Wounded Knee, a mustachioed anthropologist named Jesse Walter Fewkes dragged a state-of-the-art Edison phonograph to Passamaquoddy country [in northeastern Maine]. This was during the height of ‘salvage anthropology,’ an attempt to document the many tribes that were being massacred into extinction.” Those recordings have now been digitized and returned to the Passamaquoddy, and they’re being slowly deciphered an...

Winter ticks are responsible for New England's moose massacres

The changing climate felt in recent years has proven deadly for moose populations in the northeastern United States. Longer fall seasons and warmer winters have caused winter tick populations to thrive at the expense of their majestic hosts. Experts, who have been alarmed by the unfolding ravaging on New England moose, warn “we’re sitting on a powder keg” as calf survival has fallen to an all-time low of 30 percent while blighted adults — barely recognizable from the onslaught — are now referre...

Fred Danziger (update)

Originally from Pittsburgh, Fred Danziger is a Philadelphia based painter whose work I have long admired, and who I wrote about previously in 2012. Danziger’s subject matter ranges from cityscapes, rich with city lights and city dwellers, to contemplative landscapes, so calm as to seem as far away from the bustle of the city as possible. Over his history as a painter, he has also taken on a variety of other subjects and a range of approaches. All of his work, though, strikes me as a product o...
