Low-cost 3D printed sensors can detect early signs of forest fires or chemical leaks

Researchers from the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia have demonstrated how 3D printing can be used to manufacture low-cost, disposable sensors that give early warnings for such hazards as forest fires or chemical leaks. According to the research team, the 3D printed sensors could “revolutionize environmental monitoring.” While your fire detector going off while you cook food can be a nuisance, it is important to remember that the screeching device actually helps to save lives. Still, if you live somewhere that is prone to forest fires, a standard fire alarm warning might be […]
