Julien Nikolov, a graduate student from the University of Lincoln in the UK. This is silicone based reusable tattoo.

According to Nikolov, the positive relief effect achieved after application communicates essential design information through both visual and tactile stimulation. The intent of this project was to consider how technological developments could impact populations of people within construct social scenarios.




3D-Printed Hand Enables Girl’s First Pitch

Posted on Updated on

Hailey Dawson was born with a rare disease, but a 3D printer is changing her life.

3D-Printed Hand Enables Girl’s First Pitch. Hailey is 7 year old, with the help of 3D printed hand she throw first pitch!!!!

“She has no fear. When she waves, she waves with her little hand. When kids want to hold her hand, that’s the hand she pulls out. She has no care about what other people think,” said Yong Dawson, Hailey’s mom. “When people ask her, she says, ‘This is what I was born with. You were born with blue eyes, I was born with his hand. This is me.’”

Hailey began her run of ceremonial first pitches a few years ago at a University of Nevada Las Vegas Rebels game, not far from where the Dawsons live.

The Dawson family collaborating with researchers from South Africa to the U.S. — to find a hand that fit just right.

The 3D-printed hand project has been led by Dr. Mohamed Trabia, the associate dean for Research, Graduate Studies and Computing at UNLV, and a professor of mechanical engineering, as well as Dr. Brendan O’Toole, chair of the university’s Department of Mechanical Engineering and director of the College of Engineering’s Mendenhall Innovation Program that’s focused on entrepreneurship and design.

4D Print’s Shape shifting Architecture

Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University. The team of scientists are working  to create transformable architectures.

“This work represents an elegant advance in programmable materials assembly, made possible by a multidisciplinary approach,” said Jennifer Lewis, senior author on the new study.

“Using one composite ink printed in a single step, we can achieve shape-changing hydrogel geometries containing more complexity than any other technique, and we can do so simply by modifying the print path,” said Gladman. “What’s more, we can interchange different materials to tune for properties such as conductivity or biocompatibility.”

Matsumoto said, Our mathematical model prescribes the printing pathways required to achieve the desired shape-transforming response. He also describe, we can control the curvature both discretely and continuously using our entirely tunable and programmable method.
