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 […]

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 […]
