3D printing 100 times faster with light

Rather than building up plastic filaments layer by layer, a new approach to 3D printing lifts complex shapes from a vat of liquid at up to 100 times faster than conventional 3D printing processes, researchers have shown.

3D bioprinted robots

3D bioprinted robots

These bio-inspired soft robotic devices could offer many more capabilities for movement and performance - such as real-time bio-sensing, self-organization, adaptability, or self-healing - than existing systems, which use solely artificial materials.

Shape-conformable batteries based on 3D-printing technology

Shape-conformable batteries based on 3D-printing technology

Flexible, wireless electronic devices are rapidly emerging and have reached the level of commercialization; nevertheless, most of battery shapes are limited to either spherical and/or rectangular structures, which results in inefficient space use.

Electronic pill can relay diagnostic information or release drugs

Researchers have designed an ingestible capsule that can be controlled using Bluetooth wireless technology. The capsule, which can be customized to deliver drugs, sense environmental conditions, or both, can reside in the stomach for at least a month, transmitting information and responding to instructions from a user's smartphone.
