Devising New Meat Alternatives with 3D printing — And Cocoa Butter

Devising New Meat Alternatives with 3D printing — And Cocoa Butter

No longer just a dream of vegetarians and vegans, fake meat is becoming more widely available in grocery stores and restaurants. And more options are almost certainly on the way. One team has developed a new combination of plant-based ingredients tailored for 3D printing meat alternatives. Their most successful recipes required an odd-sounding addition: cocoa butter, derived from cocoa beans of chocolate fame.

Engineers Bring a Soft Touch to Commercial Robotics

Engineers Bring a Soft Touch to Commercial Robotics

Inspired by the natural dexterity of the human hand, a team of engineers has created a reconfigurable hybrid robotics system that is able to grip a variety of objects: from the small, soft and delicate to the large, heavy and bulky. This technology is expected to impact a range of industries, involving food assembly, vertical farming and fast-moving consumer goods packaging, which will progressively automate more of their operations in the coming years.

3D Bioprinted Tissues Can Now be Stored in the Freezer Until Needed

3D Bioprinted Tissues Can Now be Stored in the Freezer Until Needed

A major obstacle to widespread study and clinical use of 3D tissues is their short shelf-life, which may be anywhere from a just few hours to a few days. As in the case of an organ transplant, a bioprinted tissue must be transported rapidly to the location where it is needed, or it will not be viable.

Shellac for Printed Circuits

Shellac for Printed Circuits

More precise, faster, cheaper: Researchers all over the world have been working for years on producing electrical circuits using additive processes such as robotic 3-printing (so-called robocasting) - with great success, but this is now becoming a problem. The metal particles that make such "inks" electrically conductive are exacerbating the problem of electronic waste.

World's Longest Flexible Fibre Battery

World's Longest Flexible Fibre Battery

Researchers have developed a rechargeable lithium-ion battery in the form of an ultra-long fiber that could be woven into fabrics. The battery could enable a wide variety of wearable electronic devices, and might even be used to make 3D-printed batteries in virtually any shape.

3D Printing Meets Meat in the Largest Cultured Steak Ever Made

3D Printing Meets Meat in the Largest Cultured Steak Ever Made

Recently, Israeli bioprinting company MeaTech 3D Ltd announced that it succeeded in printing a 104 gram (3.67 oz) cultivated steak using their proprietary 3D printing technology. Made of real cultivated fat and muscle cells, the steak is believed to be the largest cultured steak produced to date. The achievement represents another step on the road to mass production of cultured meat, an important goal to combat climate change.

3D Printing Hardware: On Its Way to an $9.9 Billion Peak

3D Printing Hardware: On Its Way to an $9.9 Billion Peak

In the thirty years since the founding of the 3D printing industry, countless printing technologies have been invented, patented, and commercialized - from fused filament fabrication to digital light processing, selective laser melting to binder jetting, material jetting to sheet lamination, and every unique printing technology in between. With every new technology, the additive manufacturing market has grown its ability to expand into new…
