What are some of the trends in storing, communicating, and using big data when it comes to materials, and what impact could this have on the circular economy?
Later this month, a 3D-printing pop-up restaurant, called “Food Ink”, will open in London. The restaurant promises to offer a completely different dining experience, rather than being served food that has been cooked and prepared by a chef, customers will be offered a selection of 3D-printed food items by the

A research team from Zhejiang University in Eastern China has used 3D-printing to create a new plastic polymer that can “shape-shift” after it has been produced. The approach has been called “4D-printing”, where the material is printed with inherent properties that allow it to take different forms in different conditions.
Many of today’s electronic products contain high-quality components that are lost after the product has reached the end of its first use. Think of a smartphone, for example. Many parts like the camera, processor, speaker and microphone remain in working order throughout the lifespan of the device, and are only
