Future clothes might be made from algae.
Interestingly, a global group of specialists from the University of Rochester and Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands utilized 3D printers and a novel bioprinting procedure to print green growth into living, photosynthetic materials that are intense and versatile.
Living materials, which are made by lodging organic cells in a non-living network, have acquired prominence as of late as researchers perceive that frequently the most vigorous materials are those that impersonate nature.
"Three-dimensional printing is a powerful technology for fabrication of living, functional materials that have a huge potential in a wide range of environmental and human-based applications," says Srikkanth Balasubramanian, a postdoctoral research associate at Delft and the first author of the paper.
"We provide the first example of an engineered photosynthetic material that is physically robust enough to be deployed in real-life applications."
