Virginia Tech Researchers Discuss New Method for 3D Printing Kapton

Virginia Tech Researchers Discuss New Method for 3D Printing Kapton

If you’re familiar at all with Kapton, you may know it as its tape form. Kapton Tape is used commonly in electrical applications and is known for being able to hold up in extremely high or low temperatures – from about  -450º to 500ºF. The material itself, a foil-like polyimide, possesses excellent thermal and chemical […]

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

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 […]

It Looks Like Apple is Finally Jumping into the Virtual Reality Market

It Looks Like Apple is Finally Jumping into the Virtual Reality Market

While Apple has always been notoriously tight-lipped when it comes to ongoing projects and technology development, it seemed a little off that we haven’t heard much from them concerning virtual reality. Many of Apple’s fellow global tech companies like Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Samsung have been very openly developing virtual reality technology for years. But […]
