Wearable 3D Printeds

My fascination for 3D printing is only heightened by wonderfully creative ideas like this. Mediated Matter Group have produced this great video of a 3D printed biological wearable, that could theoretically generate drugs, fuel and food when exposed to sunlight. The wearable known as Mushtari (Arabic for “giant”) — which you can see morphing and wrapping around the pelvis of computer-animated models in the video — was inspired by the human gastrointestinal tract. It’s not the kind of thing I encounter in my day to day work so I am hugely impressed with the direction this work is heading in and look forward to learning more about the subject as it evolves.
