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.
Captain’s Log – Stardate 1034.55. A ship-wide system failure has struck all navigational devices and computer servers on the Enterprise. Commander Data has being signed off sick with a hardware malfunction brought on by stress. I’ve retired to the holodeck to let off some steam by dancing with some showgirls from those old Westerns that were popular on the planet called Earth many centuries ago. We have learnt our lesson in trusting Windows 7.
