Living materials 3D printed from algae

RochesterThree-dimensional printers and a new bio-printing technique have been combined to print algae into living, photosynthetic materials that are tough and resilient.

The material has potential applications in the energy, medical and fashion sectors and is the result of a joint project between the University of Rochester in the US and Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands.
