Thanks to a new-3D printing system developed by an Israeli couple, 3D-printed clothing that acts and feels like cloth could be on the way. First stop: disposable Reg Grundies for women.
Biotech startup Suneris has developed a plant-based polymer it says functions like "Lego building blocks for the body," drastically reducing the amount of time it takes to stop a wound from bleeding.
November was a whirl of space news, and on this month's show we couldn't get enough of epic sexy math, Twitter's contribution to world space programs and the truth about ancient Mars.
On today's show, we check out a biodegradable drone with a fungi-like casing, discuss the PlayStation Vue and swoon over a bike path in the Netherlands inspired by Van Gogh.
The research team developing the bio-friendly drone says it would mostly melt like a puddle of goo if it went down in the field, raising some interesting questions about future environmental research...and espionage.
If this "biological drone" drone crashes, it can decompose without leaving a trace. "No one would know if you'd spilled some sugar water or if there'd been an airplane there."
A smart liquid bandage glows to reveal the amount of oxygen the wound underneath is getting, and that could help doctors help us heal.
A new biomaterial clings to all the curves and wrinkles of the human body to help keep bacteria out of difficult-to-treat wounds.
Australian researchers have taken inspiration from bees to develop an autonomous aircraft landing system that operates independently of outside technology.
Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University collaborating with Disney Research have designed a machine that can 3D print in woollen materials.
