It means the technique could be used in the future to ensure an unlimited supply of corneas. As the outermost layer of the human eye, the cornea has an important role in focusing vision. Yet there is a significant shortage of corneas available to transplant, with 10 million people worldwide requiring surgery to prevent corneal blindness as a result of diseases such as trachoma, an infectious eye disorder.
In the city of Eindhoven the realization of the first of five planned 3D-printed concrete houses will start this year. The project, called Project Milestone, is a world’s first, as the houses will all be occupied. The six parties involved showed the design today.
Amstedam researchers design autonomus 3-D-printed, driverless boats that can provide transport and self-assemble into other floating structures and aim to reduce traffic issues in their own city. The future of transportation in waterway-rich cities such as Amsterdam, Bangkok, and Venice — where canals run alongside and under bustling streets and bridges — include autonomous boats that ferry goods and people, helping clear up road congestion.
ETSEIB Motorsport, one of the most experienced teams in the Formula Student competition, uses 3D printing to revolutionize their day-to-day operations. Thanks to the BCN3D Sigmax 3D printer, the team has been able to speed up the design phase and to fabricate end-use pieces that are directly mounted on the car itself. This has allowed them to greatly reduce the car costs and shrink the lead times. They are now capable to iterate faster and get refined designs in a very straightforward workflow.
Arevo is led by early Amazon and Google exec Jim Miller and to demonstrate its capabilities to quickly and economically produce complex shapes out of composite materials Arevo of Silicon Valley, California, has made a carbon-fibre framed bicycle. As the frame is made with a robot there are low labour costs and the firm's technology could enable the mass manufacture of composite frames.
In celebration of the Royal couple's dedication to the fight against single-use plastic bottles, SodaStream, the world's largest sparkling water brand, has dressed up a set of limited edition bottles to be auctioned as a donation to the plastic-free charity - Surfers Against Sewage. As a driving force behind the removal of single-use plastic from the world, SodaStream is thrilled to shed light on this global hazard by donating all proceeds to Surfers Against Sewage, a charity chosen by the royal couple.
