Lenovo: ThinkPad and 3D printing
For people with foot abnormalities, finding the right pair of shoes has long required a series of compromises: settling for shoes that don’t fit, are too expensive, or look plain unattractive. Footprint 3D’s founders are taking these problems head-on. They’re developing a more supportive footbed that correctly aligns joints and ligaments and alleviates pain. And they’re creating designs that compete aesthetically – and economically – with the world’s leading brands.
How do they do it? Footprint 3D first scans a person’s feet, then feeds the 3D data into modeling software to produce custom footbed designs. By enhancing these models with structures formed by a set of algorithms, the files are then printed through a process known as selective laser sintering and assembled with a unique upper comprised of advanced textiles. The result is a single pair of shoes designed and made for a single individual – the ultimate market of one.
Footprint 3D’s rapid manufacturing accomplishes more than just a custom fit; it eliminates the waste caused by traditional manufacturing, including excess molds, tools, and scrap. They also use materials much more environmentally friendly than EVA, the most common shoe midsole foam that can last up to 1,000 years in a landfill.

Samsung Printing Solutions: Higher, Faster and Stronger
Originating in ancient Greece, the Olympic Games has always aimed to bring together the known world’s finest competitors. As far back as the 8th Century BC, runners, wrestlers, chariot riders, javelin throwers and more fought for the right to be called Olympic champion.
The modern Summer Olympics came into being in 1896, and now constitutes the world’s most popular sporting event. Every four years, the event brings together thousands of dedicated hopefuls from around the world to compete in dozens of events. The athletes’ dedication to excellence is embodied in the Olympic motto “Citius, Altius, Fortius” – “faster, higher, stronger.”
In business as in athletics, only the most very best competitors can take a place on the podium. For Samsung Printing Solutions, the ideals behind the Olympic motto ring especially true. Creating products and solutions that perform faster, are higher in quality and stronger than the rest helps keep Samsung ahead of the chasing pack.
Samsung: Printing Customization
Most modern electronic devices have settings menus that allow you to operate in any major language of your choice. But what happens when an organization that operates in a language spoken by only 125,000 people needs sophisticated printing solutions? And what if important command terms such as “quick start” do not even exist in that language?

In scenarios like this, organizations need a printing partner that specializes in flexibility, as well as hardware that allows for wide-reaching customization possibilities.
Samsung Printing Solutions’ MultiXpress MX7 printers are equipped with independent functions, and an eXtensible open architecture (XOA) platform for personalized printing settings, as well as UI personalization with My Page.
It Smart UX Center also offers a range of tools suited to solving complex problems such as those facing Te Wananga o Aotearoa (TWoA) – one of New Zealand’s leading custodians of the te Reo Māori language.
Lenovo Think Station Review:
The first thing we do when we unpack a new laptop is open the lid and take a deep sniff to rate the smell. Not really, but it’s some criteria we’re thinking of adding to our reviews. The good news on this? The P70 doesn’t stink. If it has any smell at all, it would be that of POWER. Lenovo is not skimping here folks. As a matter of fact, this is Lenovo’s first mobile laptop featuring the Intel Xeon (Skylake) processor, and the first 17″ workstation from Lenovo in, let’s see, FIVE YEARS. The W7XX series was its predecessor–remember the integrated Wacom digitizer and the 10.6″ secondary slide-out screen? Well, you won’t see those on the P70, but you can be sure Lenovo has packed the max amount of updated hardware, shaved off a little weight and boosted battery power.
When you buy this laptop, you’ll be tossing in your bag 7.5+ pounds of matte-black chassis wrapped storage drives, ports and processors strapped into a magnesium frame with stiff steel hinges that hold the 4K UHD (or FHD) IPS screen. It’s signature Lenovo Brutalist design (that honestly, we love) rugged, minimal and edgy while offering an independent individualism that screams, “I will take over the entire surface of this desktop with this laptop and you will like it.”
It has better battery life than other large laptops we’ve tested–8.5 hours max (per the spec sheet) and 2.5 hours with our regular use test. This, with attention to weight and port locations, makes it magnificent for being more mobile between office and shop, plus you’ll have the screen size to show half the people on the airplane what you’re working on/watching.
