As technology advances, gadgets and gizmos are becoming smaller and smaller. From medical devices to bee-sized robots , developments in engineering have made for incredibly tiny electronics. To accommodate these diminutive devices, researchers at Harvard University and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have successfully 3D printed lithium-ion batteries the size of a grain of sand. They were able to use a printer to fabricate interlocking electrodes each about the width of a human hair. Their results have been published in the June 18 edition of Advanced Materials.
