3D Bioprinting by the U.S Army

Army

The U.S Army is a great investor in 3D bioprinting and regenerative medicine. This new research area is made by scientists to help injured soldiers recover from the wounds of war. The 3D bioprinters are used for skin repair research. Dr. Michael Romanko said that “Everyone has a different type of injury, and not everyone’s skin injury looks the same. Skin bioprinting would provide a scalable form of personalized medicine.”

Super FingerReader Device

12

 

You can easily read a text in a book full of small letters with the FingerReader device. It is a 3D printed device that could be used to read online articles, menu cards, flyers and any kind of text. This device uses vibration motors, which alert readers when their finger moves away from a line or a word. Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology still develop the FingerReader and probably we can buy it in the near future.

Cool Kid Filed a Patent for His 3D Printer

Thomas Suarez

Thomas Suarez has filed a patent for his 3D printer which is 10 times faster than the actual 3D printers.  His desire is to revolutionize 3D printing technology because it fascinates him. The 15-year-old boy was inspired by Steve Jobs and he also started an app club at his school where any student  is able to go there and learn how to design an app. We must support young inventors and entrepreneurs :)
