Cabe, that sounds like an interesting combination. Maybe you should try writing to Georgia Tech and making that suggestion?

mrdon, HMI is an interesting application idea. BTW, I think a.saji meant that new technologies that can be applied to robotics are happening very quickly right now.

Greg, that's interesting that several people, including you, mentioned medical applications. I was thinking more along the line of industrial uses but medical makes a lot of sense.

I wonder if this could be coupled with Georgia Institute of Technology's sensor device that converts mechanical pressure into light for ultra-sensitivity akin to human skin. https://www.gatech.edu/newsroom/release.html?nid=228141

vimalkumarp, good point about companion robots as an application for this tech.

At this year's MD&M West show, lots of material suppliers are talking about new formulations for wearables and things that stick to the skin, whether it's adhesives, wound dressings, skin patches and other drug delivery devices, or medical electronics.
Researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have published two physics-based models for the selective laser melting (SLM) metals additive manufacturing process, so engineers can understand how it works at the powder and scales, and develop better parts with less trial and error.
Materials and assembly methods on exhibit at next week's MD&M West and other co-located shows will include some materials you should see, as well as several new and improved processes. Here's a sampling of what you can expect.
More plastics are coming into hospital equipment, as well as single-use, patient-friendly medical devices and wearables.
The Food & Drug Administration has approved a 3D-printed, titanium, cranial/craniofacial patient-specific plate implant for use in the US. The implant is 3D printed using Arcam's electron beam melting (EBM) process.
