McAlpine Research Group 3D-druckt Prototypen eines bionischen Auge

McAlpine Research Group 3D druckt Prototypen eines bionischen Auge1 300x200 - McAlpine Research Group 3D-druckt Prototypen eines bionischen Auge

Indem sie erfolgreich optoelektronische Bauelemente mit Polymer-Photodetektoren auf einer halbkugelförmigen Oberflächen 3D-drucken, machte die McAlpine Research Group von der University of Minnesota (UMN) nun einen bedeutenden Schritt in Richtung bionische Augen. Gegründet wurde die McAlpine Research Group von Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering Michael C. McAlpine. Das Ziel hinter dieser Forschungsgruppe ist die Untersuchung von [...]

University of Minnesota researchers create 3D printed bionic eye prototype

The McAlpine Research Group from the University of Minnesota (UMN) has successfully 3D printed optoelectronic devices using polymer photodetectors on hemispherical surfaces. According to the research published in the latest edition of Advanced Materials, this is a significant step towards “bionic eyes” to aid the visually impaired. “Bionic eyes are usually thought of as science […]

University of Minnesota researchers create 3D printed implant that restores function in spinal cord

Researchers at the University of Minnesota (UMN) have developed a prototype for a 3D-printed scaffold with living cells that could help restore some function to patients with spinal cord injuries. 3D printed scaffolds In a report titled “3D Printed Stem-Cell Derived Neural Progenitors Generate Spinal Cord Scaffolds”, the researchers demonstrate the process and benefits of a bioprinted […]

Sub $400 3D prints electric sensing temporary tattoos for soldiers

Scientists at the University of Minnesota (UMN) have 3D printed an electronic circuit on to the back of a human hand for the first time. Though temporary, like lick n stick tattoos, this technology presents great potential for helping to heal wounds, gather advanced intelligence on the battlefield, and promote response in remote locations. “It would […]

US Military studies invertebrates for 3D printing active materials in robots

The US Military is seeking to harness the flexibility of invertebrate creatures to produce robots that benefit from less structural rigidity than what robotics currently allows for. The results suggest a 3D printed robotic squid may be among the next generation of military robots. These robots would be better equipped for working in cramped spaces, using […]

U.S. Marine Corps improving squadron self-sufficiency with 3D printing

U.S. Marines with Combat Logistic Battalion 31 (CLB), part of the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU), are using 3D printing to create spare parts. The 31st MEU deploys with little notice, as the need arises. The nature of their mission means that sending replacement parts around the world is not often feasible, something that leads […]

Forscher stellen bislang realistischste Organmodelle am 3D-Drucker her

Einem Forscherteam der University of Minnesota in den USA ist es gelungen Organmodelle am 3D-Drucker herzustellen, welche über die exakte anatomische Struktur und mechanischen Eigenschaften von menschlichen Organen verfügen. Die patientenspezifischen 3D-gedruckten Nachbildungen sind zudem mit integrierten Sensoren versehen und unterstützen Medizinern so um chirurgische Eingriffe realitätsnah zu üben. In ihrer Studie „3D Printed Organ Models […]
