3D Printing Embedded Sensors

Researchers have created a prototype 3D printer which is capable of printing electronic sensors embedded in flexible plastic. This is a big step forward for the wearable tech industry and the nanotech industry.  It will also have a positive impact on smaller businesses that will be able to print prototypes of products they are designing with at least some electronic functionality printed right into the object, thus decreasing the time it takes to design their product and get it to market.
