3D printers can now print with hemp, beer, and coffee
Most 3D printers use plastic, which usually isn't the most environmentally friendly material available. Most forms of plastic are made from hydrocarbons like oil, and they don't break down when you're done with them. a North Dakota startup called 3DomFuel is looking to make 3D printing filament from other materials like coffee, beer, and even sticky icky hemp. If you just checked the calendar to see if it was April Fools, think again. 3DomFuel is actually doing this.

3D Printing of Soft Shape-Memory Devices
Researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Singapore University of Technology and Design developed a technique for 3D printing of shape-memory objects. Shape-memory is a property of some materials, allowing them to snap back to a certain shape after being deformed. In medicine, nitinol stents are probably the most commonly used application for shape-memory materials, but there is a lot more potential for shape-memory technology to influence clinical care. There could be surgical tools, drug delivery methods, and devices placed within the body that activate only when their environment changes in a certain way.
