Nanomachines are tiny molecules – more than 10,000 lined up side by side would be narrower than the diameter of a human hair – that can move when they receive an external stimulus. They can already deliver medication within a body and serve as computer memories at the microscopic level. […]

Researchers Use 3D Printing to Turn Microscopic Machines Into Powerful ...


In Brief A new way to create working heart tissue using plants could eventually help us treat heart attack patients or others whose hearts have difficulty contracting. Researchers from the Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) have transformed a spinach leaf into functional heart tissue. The team’s goal was to recreate human organ […]

Researchers Have Transformed a Spinach Leaf Into Working Heart Tissue


Modern consumers crave touchscreens, but the screens’ brittle fragility is their downfall. In order for sensors to cover anything larger — like a robot — the technology will need to be cost-effective and flexible. An MIT research team might have found the solution in 3-D printing, according to a study […]

We Could Create Robots That Can Feel, Thanks to New ...


Platform Enablers A team of Australian scientists recently announced plans to use 3D printing and virtual reality (VR) to bring a dinosaur back to life. No, it won’t actually be alive, but it will feel like it is. The team will 3D print a tactile version of the creature, and […]

Here’s All the Proof You Need That Technology Is Utterly ...



In Brief The company BeeHex has developed a 3D printer for NASA that can make pizzas. It will allow astronauts to cook in space. The 3D printer, which received $1 million in funding, will also be available on Earth as „Chef 3D.“ Now that 3D-printing technology has become more vital […]

NASA Astronauts Can Now 3D-Print Pizzas in Space


Ford is partnering with Stratasys Ltd. to 3D-print prototype car parts and potentially specialty parts for low-volume cars in the near future. The Stratasys Infinite Build 3D printer, as its name suggests, is capable of building a car part of any size. Initially, the room-size printer will do rapid prototyping […]

Ford tests 3D printing of big car parts


In Brief A 38-square-meter (409-square-foot) house was 3D printed in 24 hours for a total cost of $10,000. Apis Cor., the Russian company that constructed the house, says that a simpler house could cost only $223 per square meter. 3D printing is incorporating itself into our clothes, our medicine, and, […]
