4D PRINTING

Using a new technique known as 4D printing, researchers can print out dynamic 3D structures capable of changing their shapes over time.
Such 4D-printed items could one day be used in everything from medical implants to home appliances, scientists added.
Today’s 3D printing creates items from a wide variety of materials — plastic, ceramic, glass, metal, and even more unusual ingredients such as chocolate and living cells. The machines work by setting down layers of material just like ordinary printers lay down ink, except 3D printers can also deposit flat layers on top of each other to build 3D objects.
