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 […]

Bees put sting in Temple’s bioinspired 3D printed needle design

Design for additive manufacturing (DfAM) tools, such as generative design programs and topology optimization, are changing the way our world looks. Airplane parts are now more organic-looking, taking on the shape of thick vines overarching a space, rather than the conventional blocks and right-angels. And, seeking inspiration for new materials and devices, researchers are increasingly […]
