In one integrated design and print process, you can now create objects with a suite of embedded sensors

Not as conductive as Black Magic 3D, this material can be used for resistive and capacitive sensors such as buttons and sliders.

3D print electrical circuits embedded within your 3D structures with Bacl Magic 3D from Graphene 3D Lab, Inc.

Qualcomm-backed Brain Corporation announce BrainOS, a development kit incorporating 3D printable designs, AI-software tools and Qualcomm-powered hardware, to make it easier for developers to build learning robots. I assume BrainOS will support Qualcomm’s Neuromorphic chips when they become available.

Foldscope: Origami based print and fold paper-microscope.

An origami $1 microscope that can open up micro-biology to everyone, in particular schools across developing countries (although we could also do with them here in the UK too).

Foldscopes can provide up to roughly 2,100x magnification, providing a resolution of about 0.7 microns. Can be looked through or used to project.
