Signal: 3D Heart implant

Trend: Future Identity

Every person has a different size heart. Up till now, there is no custom made heart, with just the right size for every person. So 3D printed heart implants could be the solution.
Researchers are using 3D printing to create a stretchy material that fits around your heart. Within the stretchy materials, there are electronics and other measuring materials who are able to “read” your heart and can see early signs of heart diseases.

Research/design team: Igor Efimov, John Rogers and Yonggang Huang
