Printing Objects That Can Incorporate Living Organisms

Printing Objects That Can Incorporate Living Organisms

A method for printing 3D objects that can control living organisms in predictable ways has been developed. The technique may lead to 3D printing of biomedical tools, such as customized braces, that incorporate living cells to produce therapeutic compunds such as painkillers or topical treatments, the researchers say.

3D Printed Microscaffold Cochlear Implant

3D Printed Microscaffold Cochlear Implant

Scientists developed a 3D-microscaffold cochlear implant for steroid elution. For the first time, scientists combined a highly precise, porous 3D printed steroid reservoir with a 2D MEMS-based electrode array to fabricate a novel cochlear implant. This implant is designed to reduce the damage of residual hearing against electrode insertion trauma.

A Technology for Embedding Data in Printed Objects

A Technology for Embedding Data in Printed Objects

A team has developed a new method to embed information in a 3D printed object and retrieve it using a consumer document scanner. Information such as a serial ID can be embedded without modifying the shape of the object, and be simply extracted from a single image of a commercially available document scanner.

Albright Silicone Launches its 3D Printing Silicone Capability

Albright Silicone Launches its 3D Printing Silicone Capability

Albright has added a 3D printing capability and developed a special 3D silicone molding process for relatively low cost rapid turnaround prototyping. Customers that need a small number of parts for initial testing but are not ready for metal tooling can benefit from working with a silicone molder that is able to provide LSR molding with 3D printed tooling.

First 3D Printed Sensor Operated Prosthetic Arm for Toddlers

First 3D Printed Sensor Operated Prosthetic Arm for Toddlers

The lightweight device with soft grip fingers uses an armband fitted with sensors to detect electrical signals naturally conducted by muscles. This enables the toddler to grip and pick up objects in much the same way as they would with a natural arm.

Diagnosing Cardiovascular Disease

Diagnosing Cardiovascular Disease

Diagnosing CVD is the first step in patients' road to recovery. It is imperative to detect the disease early in order to administer treatment while it is still treatable. In addition, preventing the disease altogether is becoming more important in healthcare. The main approaches for detecting CVD are currently in vitro diagnostics (IVD) at point-of-care (POC) and the use artificial intelligence (AI) in cardiovascular imaging.

Storing Data in Everyday Objects

Storing Data in Everyday Objects

A research team has discovered a new method for turning nearly any object into a data storage unit. This makes it possible to save extensive data in, say, shirt buttons, water bottles or even the lenses of glasses, and then retrieve it years later. The technique also allows users to hide information and store it for later generations. It uses DNA as the storage medium.
