Scientists 3D Print Human-Scale, Living Tissues

Scientists 3D Print Human-Scale, Living Tissues | Science & Technology | Scoop.it
Need some new muscle? We’ll print that for you. In a tremendous stride forwards for the field of regenerative medicine, researchers in the U.S. have managed to invent a 3D printer capable of churning out human-scale, living tissues that survived and integrated when implanted into an animal. While it’s still early days, the team demonstrated that the tissues developed the right strength and function required for human application, raising the possibility that the technique could one day be used to help people whose tissue has been damaged by disease or trauma.

In Future, The Internet Could Come Through Your Lightbulb | IFLScience | Science & Technology | Scoop.it
The tungsten lightbulb has served well over the century or so since it was introduced, but its days are numbered now with the arrival of LED lighting, which consume a tenth of the power of incandescent bulbs and have a lifespan 30 times longer. Potential uses of LEDs are not limited to illumination: smart lighting products are emerging that can offer various additional features, including linking your laptop or smartphone to the internet. Move over Wi-Fi, Li-Fi is here.

New Concept Plane Can Take Off And Land Like A Helicopter

New Concept Plane Can Take Off And Land Like A Helicopter | Science & Technology | Scoop.it
Is it a bird? Is it a plane?… Or a helicopter? Or both?! Technically at this stage it is neither – it's a concept. But here is how it is proposed to work: Using three ducted fans, the TriFan 600 lifts off vertically, in a similar manner to a helicopter. But after takeoff, the craft's wing fans rotate forward, allowing it to then fly like a plane. The process reverses on landing. This new and unusual hybrid of helicopter and plane motion technology allows the craft to take off and land without the need for runways or open space.
