Silver nanowire is used in many applications ranging from prosthetics to wearable devices. Until now researchers have been unable to print flexible, stretchable circuits using silver nanowires as they clog the printing nozzles. A new […]
Stanford University researchers have developed a way to produce thin, stretchable electronic circuits featuring extremely sensitive integrated touch-sensors. These flexible circuits can detect something as delicate as the footprint of a ladybug. Additionally, the team […]
Soft robots are now able to sense and respond to the world around them thanks to 3D printed embedded sensors. With the help of established embedded 3D printing techniques and an organic ionic liquid-based conductive […]
Students at University of Twente in Enschede, Netherlands have succeeded in 3D printing structures composed of living cells, using a new technique called ‘in-air microfluidics’. This technique is both fast and flexible allowing the production of […]
Engineers at Rutgers University have invented a method for “4D printing” a smart gel that could be used to provide structural rigidity in living organs, such as the lungs, and drug delivery. The hydrogel is […]
3D bioprinted skin is used in multiple applications including skin grafts, toxicology, and chemical testing. Traditional techniques creates a product that lacks the complexities of real skin such as pigmentation, pore size variation, and hair […]
Bioengineers at the Center for Cellular Construction at University of California, San Francisco have developed a method to enhance current 3D tissue engineering. The approach uses a precision technology called DNA-programmed assembly of cells or […]
Researchers at Imperial College London have developed a method, combining 3D printing with cryogenics, to create 3D structures that mimic soft tissues. Read the full article at Imperial College London.
