I have to admit that it is pretty cool to watch yourself on TV…

Meet the “KiWieel” - our first demo model of the new non-pneumatic tire design. Finite element analysis shows it is good for 500+ MPH (800 km/h). :-) Meeting a rubber manufacturer tomorrow that will help me find the best rubber compound, and I am very excited.
Note, the wheel section is obviously 3D printed plastic, but the rubber nubbies are the real deal (but perhaps not the final choice of exact polymer).

—- My new tires? —-
Today I am happy like a pig in the mud! Testing rubber compounds (polyurethanes to be exact) at the Centre for Advanced Composite Materials, Faculty of Engineering, The University of Auckland.
Thank you Stephen C. for helping with the setup of the DMA (Dynamic Mechanical Analyzer)!

You asked, I listened. Here it is, my 3D printed handbag with built-in LED light. Made from bio-based, compostable plastics. Designed in #AutodeskInventor. Printed on a LulzBot TAZ 5.
We clean up pretty well, believe it or not. We had a great time at the Faculty of Engineering, The University of Auckland Alumni Dinner. What’s better than great food and a room full of engineers?
Bill and I both had our slick and super-comfy suits tailor made in Hong Kong a few years ago. Match that with a 3D printed handbag and a pearl necklace that my dad bought for my mom in Japan 1980. #FemaleEngineerRockingTheStyle :-D
