Harvesting energy from wireless signals to power 3D printed IoT device

The smart lock on a front door may not draw much power, but the Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to grow to 50 billion devices by 2020. Such devices include activity trackers, smart bulbs, every Alexa-compatible device, etc. via 3ders.org, http://www.3ders.org/articles/20190201-harvesting-energy-from-wireless-signals-to-power-3d-printed-iot-device.html

Scientists build Replicator 3D printer that uses light to turn liquids into 3D objects in minutes

Researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and the University of California, Berkeley have unveiled a 3D printer that creates an entire object at once, rather than building it layer by layer as typical additive-manufacturing devices do. via 3ders.org, http://www.3ders.org/articles/20190201-scientists-build-replicator-3d-printer-that-uses-light-to-turn-liquids-into-objects-in-minutes.html
