3D Bio-Printing: Fabricating Human Tissue

3D printing has come a long way from the days of printing plastic prototypes. Today, multi-material additive printing using a range of materials, including metals, is becoming commonplace. What you may not be aware of are the rapid advances in the bio-fabrication of human tissues using 3D printing techniques.In this Future Tech video interview Futurist Shara Evans is speaking with Danny Cabrera, the co-founder and CEO of BioBots — a US start-up that sits at the intersection between computer science, biology and chemistry. They've designed 3D bio-printers and bio-inks that are unleashing a bio-fabrication revolution.

Handing the Keys Over to Autonomous Weapons

For many years, the TV and film industry has been determined to scare us with fictional horror stories that show the unforgiving aftermath of technology taking over. The Terminator franchise with its Skynet nemesis probably resonates the most with people, and more recent examples include sci-fi flick Ex Machina and cult TV show Black Mirror, which show technology one upping us in extreme, distressing and manipulative ways. Yet, in spite of some really bad endings to science fiction horror stories, humanity seems determined to build killer robots aka lethal autonomous weapons.

Looking at the Latest Advances in Virtual Reality

Scott O'Brien (Humense) is a pioneer in the fields of augmented and virtual reality. He's working on a new project - generating ultra-high definition virtual reality scenes. In this blog post we visit Humense's lab environment for an early look at an 8K VR projection.VR has lots of potential commercial uses. Right now though, one of the biggest drawbacks of VR as a business tool is the clunkiness of VR headsets.
