Plastic Style

These plastic products have gotten a style upgrade from designers using 3-D printers. Two lamps and a 3-D printed heart made to help surgeons visualize complicated procedures before they begin are on display at the 2014 Euroscience Open Forum being held now in Copenhagen. 

The models, built by Belgian additive manufacturing company Materialize with support from the European Commission, calls attention to advancing artistic, medical and scientific applications for 3-D printers.

by Ysabel Yates

This week on Txchnologist, we learned about advances in transparent electronics that could one day lead to implantable devices that give us real-time status updates on our health. 

We also examined the development of algae biofuels after researchers announced they could create crude oil from the plants in under an hour,  and saw what happens when you unleash YouTube’s Slow Mo guys at GE laboratories.

Now, we’re bringing you the top science, tech and innovation news we’ve been following this week.

3-D Heart Models Help Save Children’s Lives

by Karin Heineman, Inside Science

Fixing heart defects in children can be complicated, and the more information doctors can get before surgery the better.

To help provide that information, Justin Ryan, an artist turned biomedical engineer, is using his technical skills as an artist to make three-dimensional models of a heart to help doctors operate on children’s hearts.

Happy Halloween! We just 3-D printed this fine grumpy pumpkin in the Txchnologist lab’s brand new MakerBot Replicator 2. It’s so cool, it’s scary.
Now with spooky theme music. Check it out, if you dare. 
Thanks to Thingiverse maker Steve Campbell for uploading the model.[[MORE]]
