Carnegie Mellon Researchers Release Files for Open Source DIY 3D Bioprinter

While fully 3D printed hearts are not a reality yet for the roughly 4,000 people in the US waiting for a transplant each year, 3D printing human tissue for regeneration and repair is a big step in the right direction. The innovative researchers from Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) have long been working with 3D bioprinting to […]

3D Printed Microfluidic Devices Could Increase the Number of Viable Organs for Transplant

While great strides have been made in 3D bioprinting, including the production of living tissue for drug testing and disease research, the ultimate goal is still elusive: to 3D print entire, working organs for transplant into humans in need. There’s a global shortage of organs for transplant; demand highly exceeds supply. Currently, only about one […]

Cool Grandfather 3D Prints Kid Sized Rocket Ship and Moon Vehicle

My husband is a carpenter, and every time he gets a new tool, he takes the box and turns it into some sort of playhouse or accessory (mailbox, dresser, etc.) for our children’s cardboard-opolis. However, after hearing about what this grandfather did for his grandson, I’m afraid I’m going to have to ask my husband […]

Microsoft has hinted at the imminent release of a piece of hardware they call the HoloLens, and the software giant says it “goes beyond augmented reality and virtual reality by enabling you to interact with three-dimensional holograms blended with your real world.” That’s some mighty big talk. Microsoft says HoloLens is not simply a heads-up […]

PhD Student Designs 3D Printable Wind Turbines to Bring Cheap Power to Remote Locations

When most people imagine wind turbines, they think of huge wind farms dominating the landscape with pristine, sleek, white towers, or perhaps instead think about old-fashioned windmills in an idyllic Dutch landscape. While there is a place for both these large-scale types of wind harvesting in the world, it’s well worth a look at smaller […]
