Carbomorph Enables 3D-Circuit Printing
Andrew Cowley pointed us to a new substance called Carbomorph! It’s a new material that is conductive, piezoresistant, and printable in the latest generation of consumer 3D printers. This could give us the ability to print electronic circuitry and components on commercially available 3D printers.
Robotic Maggots Hunt Brain Tumors
Andrew also brought us news of robotic maggots that can hunt tumors in a patient’s brain, then suck out the dead tissue. That’s a big deal, because an MRI helps doctors see which tissue is OK, but you can’t exactly crawl in one of those machines to do brain surgery while it’s working.
You Can Have Carol Marcus’ Dress
Marilyn Jones found one of the most awesome dresses of all time! This is the Star Trek Dr. Carol Marcus Dress. Who is Dr. Carol Marcus? Well, apparently she’s a hottie to start with. And she’s also the only female character other than Uhura in Star Trek Into Darkness.
Super High-Resolution 3D Printing
Utkarsh Sethi found another cool printing technology. An international team of engineers is using self-assembling block copolymers, a type of material that can spontaneously form ultrafine structures. It should allow much finer, higher resolution fabrication than previously possible.
