Synthetic meat that is more like real free range meat using 4 types of cells

Aleph Farms is producing clean meat that resembles free range meat using a 3D textured process. Aleph Farm’s technology overcomes a critical clean meat issue – similarity to real meat. Our clean meat is closer to free range meat thanks to a proprietary approach developed by the Technion, which focuses on directly growing the edible …

NASA laser wire 3D printing of rocket nozzles is much cheaper and five times faster

A new process called Laser Wire Direct Closeout (LWDC) was developed and advanced at NASA to build a less-expensive rocket nozzle in significantly less time. LWDC is a different process than most 3-D printing technologies, which are powder-based and fabricated in layers. It uses a freeform-directed energy wire deposition process to fabricate material in place. …

Lawrence Livermore unlocks 3D printing to smaller than 150 nanometer features

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) researchers have discovered novel ways to extend the capabilities of two-photon lithography (TPL), a high-resolution 3D printing technique capable of producing nanoscale features smaller than one-hundredth the width of a human hair. The findings unleashes the potential for X-ray computed tomography (CT) to analyze stress or defects noninvasively in embedded …

World changing dense metal 3d printing with 100 times faster speed and 20 times lower cost

Desktop Metal was created to change the way we bring products to market. Current metal 3D printing is too expensive and industrial for prototyping and it’s not fast enough or cost-effective enough for mass production. Fundamentally different approaches are needed to move metal 3D printing beyond its current limits. Desktop Metal, a company specializing in …

New 3-D carbon nanotube chip combines computing and data storage

Instead of relying on silicon-based devices, a new 3D chip uses carbon nanotubes, which are sheets of 2-D graphene formed into nanocylinders, and resistive random-access memory (RRAM) cells, a type of nonvolatile memory that operates by changing the resistance of a solid dielectric material. The researchers integrated over 1 million RRAM cells and 2 million …
