Researchers from Harvard University have developed a 3D printing platform for creating soft robotic systems embedded with sensors. The team uses a technique developed in the lab of Jennifer Lewis to 3D print organic ionic liquid-based conductive ink within soft elastomer matrices.
Researchers at Harvard and MIT have 3D printed lightweight porous honeycombs with tunable stiffness geometry and density using a ceramic foam.
A newly developed 3D printing technique is making it easier to control the orientation of fibers of engineered composites.
Researchers from Wyss Institute have created a mini-drone called RoboBee which can fly, dive into water, swim and explode out of the water.
Researchers at Wyss Institute combine 3D printing of stretchable inks with electronic components to make wearables more flexible.
TacTip is an open-source 3D printed artificial fingertip that can 'feel', and has won the Harvard international Soft Robotics competition.
