Researchers from the University of Minnesota have devised a novel method of deploying Hollywood-esque motion capture technology to assist the 3D printing of sensors onto organs that expand and contract.
“We are pushing the boundaries of 3D printing in ways we never even imagined years ago,” said Professor Michael McAlpine, lead researcher on the project. “In the future, 3D printing will not be just about printing, but instead be part of a larger autonomous robotic system. This could be important for diseases like COVID-19, where health care providers are at risk when treating patients.”
