This Meaty-Looking “Steak” Is Made From Peas and Seaweed

Posted by in category: 3D printing

Spanish startup Novameat has unveiled a plant-based steak it says is the “most realistic” yet — and it costs about the same as what you’re likely to pay for a traditional cut of beef.


Its creator used a 3D printer to mimic muscle fibers.

World’s First 3D-Printed Heart Could Revolutionize Organ Transplants

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, biotech/medical

Many of you are way ahead of me on this topic. I design 3D printed parts for aircraft, but I didn’t think that functional, transplantable 3D printed human organs were this advanced. This article is about a heart, but it is currently only the size of a rabbit heart. Sizing it up to human size and testing are next, but this is much farther along than I expected.

Rapid creation of replacement organs, using the patient’s own cells to circumvent the body rejecting the transplant, is a direct contributor to superlongevity.

Researchers find a way to 3D print whole objects in seconds

Posted by in category: 3D printing

When you think of 3D printing, you probably imagine a structure being created layer by layer, from the bottom up. Now, researchers from Switzerland’s Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) say they have developed a completely new way of creating 3D objects that offer remarkable resolution “in record time.”

As EPFL News reports, the method draws on the principle of tomography — the technique for displaying a representation of a cross section through a solid object, using x-rays or ultrasound. To make an object, a photosensitive resin is illuminated from multiple angles, with the accumulation of light helping to solidify the resin. In other words, the object forms a solid structure within the resin in one go, rather than segment by segment, as is the case with traditional 3D printing.

Handheld bioprinter for treating burns at the point-of-care

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, bioprinting, biotech/medical, government, life extension

A burn that is over 25% of the human body area can be life threatening. However a burn that is only 1 percent but on a visible area of the body can be life-worsening. That is why advancements in the area of wound care and burns treatment are so important from patient perspective. Being a doctor of the future will include having a point-of-care device such as a 3D-Bioprinter that will scan the lesions in dept and width and print a gel imbued with cells and prolo-factors.

Forgive me my conservatism… we already have such clinics that are on the clinical trials for such treatments.

Handheld Skin 3D Printer Can Help Burn Victims

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, biotech/medical, engineering

This handheld 3D printer deposits layers of skin tissue, and could one day help to heal deep wounds. Instead of waiting for skin patches to grow in a Petri dish, you apply it directly.

A team of Canadian scientists has successfully applied skin tissue to burn wounds using a handheld 3D printer. This technology may become a game-changer in the way severe burn victims are treated.

3D Printed Human Corneas To Cure Blindness Are Here

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, biotech/medical

Scientists at Newcastle University, in the United Kingdom, have 3D printed the world’s first real human corneas. This is unbelievable news since today, there is a significant shortage of corneas available for transplant. In the future, this printing technique could be used to ensure an unlimited supply of corneas.

The cornea is the outermost layer of the human eye and it has an important role in focusing vision. Statistics show that there are currently 10 million people worldwide requiring surgery to prevent corneal blindness as a result of diseases such as trachoma, an infectious eye disorder. On top of that, there are an additional 5 million people who suffer total blindness due to corneal scarring caused by burns, lacerations, abrasion or disease.

3D Printed Heads Can Unlock Phones. What Does that Mean for Biometric Security?

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, cybercrime/malcode, mobile phones, privacy, robotics/AI

Facial recognition technology is likely not as safe as you may have thought. This was illustrated by a recent test where 3D printed busts of peoples’ heads were used to unlock smartphones.

Out of five tested phones, only one refused to open when presented with the fake head.

Other biometric security measures are also showing less resilience to hacking than you might expect. A group of Japanese researchers recently showed it was possible to copy a person’s fingerprints from pictures like the ones many of us post on social media.
