MIT and Harvard 3D print colorful masks using programmable microbes

Researchers at MIT and Harvard have incorporated living microbes into 3D-printed objects to make them more dynamic. The underlying resin material is embedded with chemical “instructions” that tell a layer of microbes to fluoresce in particular colors, producing a stunning array of patterns and designs.
