Electronic Jell-O – Conductive gelatin can be 3-D printed… and eaten

Adafruit 3904

Electronic Jell-O – IEEE Spectrum.

The future of medical diagnostics may come in the form of 3-D printed electronic Jell-o, according to an Australian chemist who’s working on developing edible sensors made out of materials like gelatin.

“What I’m suggesting is that we can eat our electronics and then they can perform a function and naturally go away,” says Marc in het Panhuis, associate professor chemistry and head of the soft materials group at the University of Wollongong, Australia.
With his team, in het Panhuis is developing hydrogels made from edible materials, in the hope that they can be used in 3-D printers to make all sorts of devices.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
