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.

Researchers Turn Old Cooking Oil from McDonald’s into Resin for 3D Printing

Posted by in category: 3D printing

Researchers at the University of Toronto Scarborough transformed used cooking oil from deep fryers at McDonald’s into a biodegradable resin.

Turns out that leftover cooking oil in McDonald’s deep fryers is actually good for 3D printing.

Researchers at the University of Toronto Scarborough were able to turn it into a biodegradable resin, they announced in a press release.

Cloning musical heritage in the key of 3D

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

When Mina Jang played the same melodious tune on two different flutes behind a screen, she said the examiners grading her couldn’t tell the difference.

Yet the two instruments were made in dramatically different ways.

One was a handmade version of an original early 18th-century crafted in 2001, while the other was made of white plastic and “cloned” using a 3D printer in 2019.

Coalition of states sue over rules governing 3D-printed guns

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, law enforcement

Attorneys general in 20 states and the District of Columbia filed a lawsuit Thursday challenging a federal regulation that could allow blueprints for making guns on 3D printers to be posted on the internet.

New York Attorney General Tish James, who helped lead the coalition of state attorneys general, argued that posting the blueprints would allow anyone to go online and use the downloadable files to create unregistered and untraceable assault-style weapons that could be difficult to detect.

The lawsuit, joined by California, Washington and 17 other states, was filed in U.S. District Court in Seattle. It is likely to reignite a fierce debate over the use of 3D-printed firearms and is the latest in a series of attempts by state law enforcement officials to block the Trump administration from easing the accessibility of the blueprints.

Mum No More: 3D Printed Vocal Tract Lets Mummy Speak

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

The coffin that holds the mummified body of the ancient Egyptian Nesyamun, who lived around 1100 B.C., expresses the man’s desire for his voice to live on. Now, 3,000 years after his death, that wish has come true. Using a 3D-printed replica of Nesyamun’s vocal tract and an electronic larynx, researchers in the UK have synthesized the dead man’s voice. Listen to it here:
