This book provides researchers with a straightforward and accessible guide for carrying out research that will help them to combine good science with real-world impact. The format of this book is simple: concise chapters on key topics, examples and case studies, written in plain language that will guide researchers through the process of research-driven innovation. The book draws on the editors’ experience in leading the Age-Well Network of Excellence. The aim of Age-Well is to drive innovation in the area of technology and aging. Researchers often lack the knowledge and abilities to commercialize or mobilize the outcomes of their research. Moreover, there is a lack of training and education resources suitable for the wide range of disciplines and experience that are becoming more typical. The book emphasizes the practicalities of “how to” undertake the kinds of activities that researchers should be engaging in if they are serious about achieving impact. Overall, this book will guide researchers through the process of research-driven innovation.

What Is Your Legacy 101 Ideas On Getting Started to Create and Build One Book Excerpt:

Are you at a crossroads? Do you wonder what should you do with your life? Would life be easier if you could only get some direction? Even if people don’t chit-chat about legacies, these are questions arising during silent nights in the mind of almost everyone. Especially in those of us reaching certain life miles like adulthood, middle life and retirement. Have you ever noticed the process of metamorphosis in a butterfly? Getting out of its chrysalis is difficult and painful. You may think you’re doing it a service by cutting the upper part of its chrysalis to ease its access out of it. But if you’ll do that, the butterfly won’t have its wings well developed and it will be crippled for the rest of its life. Struggles and challenges are necessary for metamorphosis to take place. They are necessary for creating and building a legacy too. While you are the ONLY one responsible for knowing what makes you live another day in your own skin and in your own situation, this collection of ideas on getting started to creating and building a legacy could be just the right direction you need. A purpose in life is the main reason people go on no matter what happens to them in the present moment. Such a purpose makes life not only bearable, but enjoyable too. Hence my focus on this collection of ideas is for those who understand the importance of leaving a legacy behind, but haven’t got a clue of why they live and what should they do with their lives. It is an inspiring collection for creatives in general and people who never viewed themselves as creative or who never thought they could build anything worthwhile. These ideas are organized as a flashcard set and should be read and processed accordingly. Go through all these flashcards and pick one idea. Focus on it 100% before trying another one if you’d like to. On the back of each card you will find some starting points. This is how I’d start any of these projects. But these steps are not enough – you’ll need mentors, detailed information and time to practice. If you set out your heart on one of these projects, you’ll face a steep learning curve until you’ll learn the ropes and make things happen. If any of these 101 ideas inspired you, I’d love to hear from you!

Practical 3D Printers Book Excerpt:

Desktop or DIY 3D printers are devices you can either buy preassembled as a kit, or build from a collection of parts to design and print physical objects including replacement household parts, custom toys, and even art, science, or engineering projects. Maybe you have one, or maybe you're thinking about buying or building one. Practical 3D Printers takes you beyond how to build a 3D printer, to calibrating, customizing, and creating amazing models, including 3D printed text, a warship model, a robot platform, windup toys, and arcade-inspired alien invaders. You'll learn about the different types of personal 3D printers and how they work; from the MakerBot to the RepRap printers like the Huxley and Mendel, as well as the whiteAnt CNC featured in the Apress book Printing in Plastic. You'll discover how easy it is to find and design 3D models using web-based 3D modeling, and even how to create a 3D model from a 2D image. After learning the basics, this book will walk you through building multi-part models with a steampunk warship project, working with meshes to build your own action heroes, and creating an autonomous robot chassis. Finally, you'll find even more bonus projects to build, including wind-up walkers, faceted vases for the home, and a handful of useful upgrades to modify and improve your 3D printer.
