By 3D-printing scaffolds and dipping them in microbe juice, scientists make robust structures that could one day lead to self-growing roads.
Engineers from the University of California in Irvine and the University of Southern California are using Sporosarcina pasteurii bacteria to create a material that could be used to make self-healing infrastructure like roads.
Very kool bioengineering. click on title above if you’re interested in tomorrow’s engineering.
