Dr Varun Tyagi is a medical doctor who practices in India and writes about remarkable and historical landmarks throughout the medical world.  Dr Varun believes that 3D printing can help democratize medical care, making medical devices affordable and available to everyone on the planet.

 Gadgets that can bend Hybrid 3D Printing Technique makes it possible

Jennifer Lewis, Sc.D. of the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University and her lab partnered with J. Daniel Berrigan, Ph.D. and Michael Durstock, Ph.D. at the US Air Force Research Laboratory to develop a new 3D printing technique for soft electronics, called Hybrid 3D printing. The technology basically involves shaping of the wearable electronics according to the user. For this, it involves use of conductive, stretchable 3D printing material made from TPU mixed with silver flakes. Other electrical components included parts like LEDs, resistors and micro-chips.
