3D printed watch

Researchers from the University of Minnesota claim that they are the first to 3D print electronics onto a human hand.

They created the printable and human-hand-safe electronic with a $400 portable printer. This printer uses special ink made from silver flakes. After the special ink cures, it conducts electricity at room temperature. It also keeps the human hand safe from high temperatures.

When you are done with the electronic, you simply peel it off.

The 3D printer is so accurate that it is possible to potentially create lightweight wearables that may be used in combat, used to detect chemical agents or even used in new wound treatments.
