It would appear that 3D printing has the potential to change everything. Scientists in Russia have already produced 3D printed ”organ constructs” that have been successfully transplanted into mice. Now, researchers at American University have produced chemically active structures that, not unlike living things, can actually do things on their own without an external power. These structures are not simple toys either. In fact, they do something quite useful -- they remove pollution from water and air. Not only that, but these structures were produced using common materials so that you can, in fact, try this at home, if you’d like. The structures, about the size of a kitchen sponge, are printed from ABS filaments, the same type that home hobbyists use, with the addition of chemically active Titanium dioxide (TiO2 ) nanoparticles dispersed throughout a sponge-like matrix. Tit...
