Micro-3D printing among ’10 Breakthrough Technologies’

1 min read

Technology Review today announced its annual list of 10 Breakthrough Technologies that “mark true milestones” and “solve thorny problems or create powerful new ways of using technology.”

Gracing the list is a sophisticated microscale 3D printing technique developed by Jennifer A. Lewis, Hansjorg Wyss Professor of Biologically Inspired Engineering at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. Lewis is also a core faculty member at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University.

“Every year we pick the 10 technologies we think most likely to change the world,” said Jason Pontin, publisher and editor-in-chief of Technology Review, in a press release. “We are interested in how technologies can solve really hard problems, whose solution will expand human possibilities. These technologies are an expression of our preferences and emphases, and they grow out of our reporting over the previous year. This is the stuff we like.”
