    Printing Chocolate with a LEGO 3D Printer

    Some people think the future will include a 3D printer in every home. We think if LEGO started producing these as kits we’d get pretty close. Introducing the home-made LEGO 3D printer… with a chocolate extruder.

    Stanford researchers adapt a DIY robotics kit to give STEM students tools to automate biology experiments

    Modern biology labs often use robotic assemblies to drop precise amounts of fluids into experimental containers. Now students and teachers can create inexpensive automated systems to do this in clubs or classrooms.

    Now, Stanford bioengineers have shown how an off-the shelf kit can be modified to create robotic systems capable of transferring precise amounts of fluids between flasks, test tubes and experimental dishes.

    By combining the Lego Mindstorms robotics kit with a cheap and easy-to-find plastic syringe, the researchers created a set of liquid-handling robots that approach the performance of the far more costly automation systems found at universities and biotech labs.
