redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online A team of researchers at Tel Aviv University (TAU) has developed a way to print biocompatible micro-machines - tiny sensors and motors - that could lead to improvements in medical devices like bionic arms. Such tiny micro-electromechanical systems, or MEMS, are already in widespread use today in a variety of applications from consumer electronics to automobiles and medicine. These conventional MEMS are typically produced from...
