Researchers 3D print eye cells in bid to end blindness

3D printing has been used to print a variety of objects -- firearms, casts, limbs, food. One of the most recent uses falls into the more altruistic efforts, with researchers announcing they've successfully printed eye cells, something that could eventually lead to a cure for blindness. The work was done by researchers at The University of Cambridge, and was published in the journal Biofabrication.

Microsoft Hobbit campaign brings 3D-printable Key to Erebor

Ramping up to the release of the second Hobbit movie in theaters, the folks at Microsoft have let it be known that they'll be sending out a file for 3D-printer users that'll have them creating the mythical Key to Erebor. This oddity means that Microsoft and Warner Bros. UK will be the first in history to be making use of 3D printing in an advertising campaign.

URBEE2 3D-printed car aims to hit 290MPG on cross-country trip

High fuel efficiency is an important part of a vehicle for most people, especially as fuel prices rise and environmental concerns increase. Hyper-mile drivers go to great lengths to increase their car's gas mileage, but some cars bring it to the table as its default offering. Such is the case with the URBEE2, a 3D-printed car that is about to head out on a cross-country journey with only 10 gallons of fuel.

Motorola modular phone Project Ara teams with 3D Systems for manufacturing

If there was any doubt that Motorola would continue to push forward with their modular smartphone project through the future, it's been given another kick in the pants today. Motorola Mobility LLC, A Google Company, has today announced their new partnership with the 3D printing group 3D Systems for the modular smartphone system called Project Ara. This partnership will allow Motorola to get one step closer to what they describe as "production-level speeds and volumes."

German researchers 3D print replica fossil

German researchers 3D print replica fossil

3D printing is used by scientists in many fields of study for things such as rapid prototyping and more. A group of German researchers recently used a 3D printer along with CT scanning to print a version of a fossil without having to remove the delicate fossil from its protective plaster covering. The new technology can potentially be used to study fossils that are too fragile to be handed.
