This report takes a look into the patenting activity around 3D printing uncovering the inventors, the companies and key technologies and prominent companies within this space.
3D printing or additive manufacturing is a process of making a three-dimensional solid object of virtually any shape from a digital model. 3D printing is achieved using an additive process, where successive layers of material are laid down in different shapes. 3D printing is also considered distinct from…

Battery is any device consisting of one or more electrochemical cells that convert stored chemical energy into electrical energy. Batteries are made from many materials including various metals, carbon, polymers and even air. The most common are lead-acid batteries used in vehicles and lithium ion batteries used for portable electronics. Batteries come in many shapes and sizes, from miniature cells used to power hearing aids and wristwatches to battery banks the size of rooms that provide…Continue

A fiber that has a width of less than 1000 nanometers (1000 nm or 1 µm) is generally defined as a nano fiber. A nanoparticle is defined as a small group of atoms or molecules with a radius of less than 100 nanometers (100 nm). Particles on the nanoscale have a very high surface area to volume ratio, whereas this ratio is much lower for objects on the macroscopic scale.
Nanofabrics are textiles engineered with small particles that give ordinary materials advantageous properties…

Food supply worldwide is under constant threat and effective test products that can ensure food safety are in demand. Microbial pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, environmental toxins, food allergens and adulterants, residues of drugs and agricultural chemicals can harm consumers if unchecked. In some countries, testing for Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) is also conducted to ensure food authenticity. Although pathogen testing is still the most dominant segment of food testing,…Continue
Voice Recognition and voice based commands to mobile devices took the center stage with introduction of SIRI by Apple in iphone 4S in 2010. To the user, giving voice commands to mobile devices seemed to open up many possibilities in many applications. Innovation however, in the voice recognition space has been going on since many years and in this report we take a look at 20 year patenting activity on voice recognition and voice commands to mobile devices over US patent…Continue

Miniature Drug delivery System uses micro-fabricated devices to administer drugs to the host and has advantages over a conventional drug delivery system.
A MEMS based Implantable Drug Delivery System (IDDS) is discussed. The heart of the system is an in-plane MEMS micropumps enables us to make a compact, inexpensive system. A conceptual IDDS design is proposed. This design consists of an implantable unit which houses the micropumps, electronic and power circuitry. This…Continue
