Kupros, Inc. Holds First Annual 3D Printing Embedded Circuit Design Competition

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Consumer-grade 3D printers are capable of creating sophisticated embedded 3D printed electronic circuits. And, that's why Kupros, Inc. has decided to host its first competition - to showcase just that. Competition prizes will total $26,250.

Kupros, Inc., an early-stage startup that's disrupting the world of printed electronics and antennas, is excited to give people the opportunity to demonstrate their capability as well as that of the printers in this first annual competition.

The goal of the competition is to encourage innovators in the additive manufacturing community to explore and expand the capability for printing embedded electronic circuits, antenna and sensors using commercial-grade FFF/FDM 3D printers. Competition participants should be able to demonstrate functionality in their product design which will be observed and assessed via video.

"We will shortlist 10 entries and print them on our MAKERGEAR M3-ID dual head 3D printer using PLA and Cu-29 conductive filaments," Ian Ramsdell, CEO of Kupros, says. "Next, the final products will be demonstrated, and videos posted on our website for 3D-printing enthusiasts to vote for the winning submission."

Entries are due to Kupros by midnight on July 31, 2022. For an entry form and more information about the competition, visit: https://www.kuprosinc.com/Competition.

About Kupros, Inc.:

Kupros, Inc. is an "Innovation First" company that's committed to rapid and ongoing research and development. It specializes in creating exotic filaments to expand the capability of the additive manufacturing industry in the U.S.

Winner of the Radius Indiana and Crane IP Defense Innovation Pitch Competition, graduate of the NSIN Foundry, gBETA, and BunkerLabs business accelerator programs and licensed by the DoD Crane Naval Laboratory, the revolutionary Cu-29 conductive filament is 80 times more conductive than currently available options. Preliminary testing of Cu-29 has shown a resistivity of only 74.3 micro-ohms per centimeter, which is less than 3% different to bulk copper (99% pure). Currently available products have resistivity greater than 6,000 micro-ohms per centimeter.

Planned product releases for 2023 include a high conductivity variant of Cu-29, and aerospace and radiation hardened variants.

MAGLITE® and American Paramedic Association Partner with Pedestrian Safety Institute, Promoting Traffic and Pedestrian Safety During July: The Deadliest Month of The Year

ONTARIO, Calif. -- The Maglite brand partners up with the American Paramedics Association (APA) and the Pedestrian Safety Institute (PSI) to support traffic and pedestrian safety during the deadliest month of the year. According to the PSI, July maintains the highest rate of traffic related fatalities specifically with those of pedestrians. The days surrounding July 4th are particularly dangerous.

"Paramedics are those that treat the injured and see the deaths up close from traffic fatalities and want to urge people to be more cautious so that we can respond to less of these tragedies," said Andrew Stephen, Executive Director of APA. "Any time a paramedic is out of their vehicle, the goal is to be visible. Why should it be any different for pedestrians?"

Darkness and low-visibility play a significant role in pedestrian deaths. In fact, more than 70% of fatalities happen at dawn, dusk or night. Maglite and the American Paramedic Association are on a mission to illuminate the dangers of driving in low-visibility conditions to reduce deaths and injuries. In order to raise awareness, they are distributing press materials and alerting the media about the dangers pedestrians will face in the coming months, while also promoting National Roadside Traffic Safety Awareness Month.

National Roadside Traffic Safety Awareness Month was created by the Pedestrian Safety Institute with the goal of educating and urging drivers to use caution while driving during this time of year.

"There are simple ways to reduce the number of deaths due to pedestrian traffic accidents - carry a bright flashlight, wear reflective clothing and be cautious, especially around fast-moving traffic," said Tony Maglica, founder and CEO of Mag Instrument, Inc., manufacturer of the Maglite® Flashlight.

According to the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA), more than 6,700 pedestrians died in vehicle related accidents in 2020, up from 6,412 the year before. GHSA projected that pedestrian fatality rate increased nearly 20% as deaths climbed sharply despite people driving less during the pandemic. Preliminary data from 2021 indicates yet another increase in pedestrian deaths.
