3-D-printed electrical and wireless sensors “smart cap”
According to Sung-Yueh Wu, Liwei Lin and Chen Yang from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of California, Berkeley,” They build a 3-D-printed electrical and wireless sensors to detect the levels of bacteria in the milk”.
This applicator will sense spoiled milk. We can save money by buying the big container of milk every time.
3D Printing Gives Flight to Humanitarian Efforts. Stratasys Direct Manufacturing teamed with Structural Integrity Engineering to further efforts on the latest Flying Eye Hospital for Orbis. Orbis, an organization dedicated to providing ophthalmic training to communities around the world, utilizes airborne training facilities called Flying Eye Hospitals.
SV3DPrinter’s vision for the environment or ‘GREEN’
Nothing is completely green. 3D printing also not 100% environmental friendly or ‘ GREEN’. When we use the word ‘GREEN’ it is coming from the environment we use technology to make it word GREEN.
We all are contributors to make the world not so ‘GREEN’ or ‘POLLUTION’. We are the polluters.
The same thing for 3D Printing we use different material and printers. Using printers we need energy, same kind of energy we use to grow our raw food.
When we use ‘BIODEGRADABLE’ bags for garbage, the companies make those bags and basket, and paper bags too. Making those kinds of things we contribute more pollution.
Some of us eating raw we feel we are green but not. This is the reason people use the broom to sweep outside and inside of their house. They spread more dust and contributed more pollution to the atmosphere.
Whenever new products come in the market we always attract those things and get rid of the old thing, buy new thing even we don’t really need that.
Some of us taking the dogs for the walk, they are contributing more pollution to the atmosphere.
This is similar to use cell phone doing any other regular thing or cooking food at home.
With the 3D printing, we don’t try to waste the material can reuse the material and make any useful thing out of the waste material.
Every day we have some kind of material we call it waste or recycle. We receive junk mail, frozen food boxes, any kind of drinks bottle, or we drive to buy grocery or walk to buy things.
In my opinion, using 3D Printer may be not 100% ‘GREEN’ or environmental friendly but we can try to make it ‘99% ENVIRONMENTAL FRIENDLY and GREEN’. We need to have more understanding about Additive Manufacturing:)
The 3D printed garment could enable humans to breathe underwater.
Royal College of Art graduate Jun Kamei has built a garment that functions like gills, which could allow humans to survive when sea levels rise up and submerge the earth.
Called Amphibio, the two-part 3D-printed accessory consists of a gill and a respiratory mask. It is designed to allow humans to completely breathe underwater.
Kamei has built a working prototype of Amphibio. Although it currently doesn’t produce enough oxygen to sustain human breathing, it is able to successfully extract oxygen from water, and release carbon dioxide back in – meaning it has the potential to be used for breathing.
This design is for saving humanity.
I don’t know how much efficient this, but design will work to make new kind of snorkeling equipment.
