Novel ecosustainable peat and oil shale ash-based 3D-printable composite material - ScienceDirect
Using milled peat and oil shale ash to make cheap 3D printed bricks. The oil shale ash has high pH, making it work well as a binder. Though the bricks take a day to harden up though...

MX3D Bridge
Freaky looking freeform-esqe (not some genetic algorithm evolved parametric minimalist design) 3D printed bridge. Trying to develope in-situ printing, which is a whole 'nother beast, and might have some metal grain issues, but since this is a small pedestrian bridge you can probably fake it by overbuilding a bit. Seems to use a generic robot arm with a MIG welder on the head?

Using the whole house/roof as a sun tracker is kinda interesting, when the interior walls are exposed to exterior lighting in the daytime, but sealing up at night for better insulation?

Automist Smartscan fire sprinkler: water mist fire suppression
Hrm, I can buy the target application using less water to reduce water damage, but this is an active system rather than a traditional passiv eprinkler system. No power, no mist?

Backblaze Vaults: Zettabyte-Scale Cloud Storage Architecture
I dunno, couldn't you have done something similar by running iSCSI targets for individual drives in a pod, then run that back to a SAN frontend that uses ZFS? The ZFS would take care of parity (RAIDZ3), balancing, be space efficient, and the checksumming is inline.

Idea
Turning billboards into homeless housing. For people who don't want a lot of windows (or prefer skylights), this actually isn't a terrible design on it's own. As a homeless rehousing concept, shifting them to the highway seems like trying to hide the problem more, along with poor access.

Empa - Shape Memory Alloys - A shape-conscious alloy
Low temp iron based SMA's make SMA reinforced prestressed concrete beams practical, which can be prestressed without elaborate tensioning systems. The only issue is the 160 degree transition temperature means if such a beam ever got exposed to a vehicle fire, it might fail faster than conventional prestressed concrete using steel rebar...
