University of Minnesota researchers use motion capture technology to 3D print sensors directly onto expanding organs 

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.

It is only available in red strong and flexible plastic on Shapeways as it was primarily intended to serve as a Feng Shui cure; to stop chi from flowing down the drain. I originally printed it using […]
