3-D printing liquids

 

Material scientists at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have developed a technique to print three-dimensional structures made entirely of liquids. Using a modified 3-D printer, they inject streams of surfactant-sheathed water into silicone oil to form tubes of liquid within another liquid. The threads of water have been printed with diameters ranging between 10µm to 1mm with a variety of spiralling and branching structures. The researchers hope to use the technique to construct liquid electronics, perform molecular separation, or precisely deliver components to more complex structures.

With hindsight… and a very dirty hot tub, Jasmine realised that maybe that big bowl of five-bean chilli was probably not such a good idea.
