Researchers use 3D printed toads in the wild

When the rains eventually blanket northwest Costa Rica, ushering in the country’s wet season, a booming chorus of yellow toads will fill the tropical forest.

And the moment that rain starts to fall, UWindsor’s Katrina Switzer will race to a pond in Santa Rosa National Park where she’ll match 3D printed “Robotoads” with unsuspecting mates.

“The Neotropical Yellow Toads have a large breeding event that really only happens once a year during the first massive rainfall,” Switzer explained, adding the rain usually starts falling in the middle of the night.

UWindsor prof to be featured on Japanese science show

Colin Novak is big in Japan.

And if the associate professor of mechanical, materials and automotive engineering isn’t yet, he will be soon.

A camera crew from Japan’s national public broadcaster NHK will be at the University of Windsor on April 16 to report on Dr. Novak’s investigation into the source of the infamous Windsor Hum.

Novak’s Noise Vibration and Harshness-Sound Quality Group set up low-frequency noise monitoring stations across the city’s west end to record noise within the hum’s frequency range.
