MIT professor Neri Oxman has displayed what is claimed to be the world’s first 3D-printed photosynthetic wearable embedded with living matter

Speaking at the 2015 TED conference in Vancouver, Canada, MIT professor Neri
Oxman has displayed what is claimed to be the world’s first 3D-printed photosynthetic
wearable prototype embedded with living matter. Dubbed “Mushtari,” the
wearable is constructed from 58 meters (190 ft) of 3D-printed tubes coiled into
a mass that emulates the construction of the human gastrointestinal tract. Filled with living bacteria designed to fluoresce and produce sugars or
bio-fuel when exposed to light, Mushtari is a vision of a possible future where
symbiotic human/microorganism relationships may help us explore other worlds in
space… Continue Reading World’s first photosynthetic living matter-infused 3D-printed wearable
