3D printing has been used to help create a program for exploring the possibilities of objects that can be extended and compacted at will. As a deployable feature that can be added to a variety of shapes the technique has great potential across mechanical and civil engineering to make structures and innovative machines. In robotics, […]
An open source 3D printed robot created by Nathan Seidle, founder of Colorado-based hardware company SparkFun, has wowed DEF CON attendees by cracking a SentrySafe safe in just half an hour. The week before last, we ran a story about a 3D printed open source robot that could crack a safe in as little as 15 minutes. The device was developed by SparkFun’s Nathan Seidle, and only costs around $200 to make. It's now back in the headlines thanks to its appearance at a major global event.
A joint team of researchers from the Autonomous University of Madrid and ceramic 3D printing company Lithoz GmbH have developed complex 3D printed ceramic microsystems which could advance labs-on-chips and organs-on-chips. The joint team says its 3D printed ceramic device marks a breakthrough in the biomedical field.
Cypriot 3D printer manufacturer Ilios has lifted the lid on its Thermal Masking technology, which can purportedly be used to 3D print Stereolithography (SLA) models at 1/10 the normal cost. The technology has been incorporated into the forthcoming €250 ($294) Ilios Nano SLA 3D printer.
University of California at Berkeley’s engineers have created a smart, wearable 3D printed device that is worn on the ear. The project was appropriately nicknamed the ‘earable, and is designed to track core body temperature using an IR sensor. Two in one – hearing aid and wellness monitor Though temperature sensors can be found in […]
The digital age has its fair share of headaches. Putting up your work on a network leaves it open to alterations and tampering. This problem plagues many in the industry, which is why GROW has come up with a way to tackle these security issues. Their new security solution allows users to ensure that their […]

As the co-founder of technology startup Gravity, Richard Browning is known as the real life Iron Man. Together with a dedicated team in the UK, Browning has invented and patented a jet engine powered flying suit, designed to “re-imagine manned flight.” In the latest update – this time from San Diego’s Comic-Con – Browning speaks to […]
TTP Plc, a UK-based technology and product development company, has unveiled its new FormaJet liquid handling platform which reportedly enables high throughput and multi-color digital 3D bioprinting. The company is currently seeking partners for the platform’s development and go-to-market strategy.
Disney Research has developed a technique for creating cable-driven mechanisms that could be used to animate 3D printed models of popular Disney characters. The mechanisms can also be used to make simple mechanical systems such as a gripper or robotic hand.
Danit Peleg is a fashion designer with a keen eye for the future. While implementing 3D printing into fashion is nothing new, the consumer model she is using on her website is immensely clever. On the website, users can design their own jacket and have it printed, fitted and delivered in just a few clicks. Peleg […]
