3D Printing


Aleph Farms 3D-Printed Rib Eye Steak
Israel-based Aleph Farms and its research partner at the Faculty of Biomedical Engineering at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology have created the world’s first 3D-printed rib eye steak. The team used a special three-dimensional (3D) bioprinting technology and natural building blocks of meat, which are essentially real cow cells, without genetic engineering and immortalization. This 3D bioprinting technology actually prints living cells that are then incubated to grow, differentiate, and interact, in order to acquire the texture and qualities of a real meat.

Human Face Mask Kamenya Omoto
Tokyo-based company Kamenya Omoto specializes in masks, and their latest offering is quite creepy to say the least. The store is offering to pay $340 USD to the rights to your face. Should you accept, they’ll use it to 3D print a hyper-realistic mask, which will then be sold for $940 USD. If customers frequently purchase your mask, the store will then offer to pay a percentage of the sales. The project is officially called “That Face” and has already proven to be a hit.
