University of Cambridge’s 3D printed nanoscale magnetic circuits could improve future electronic devices

3D Printed Waterproof VR Headset

A team of researchers from the University of Cambridge in the UK has developed a nanoscale magnetic circuit using 3D nano-printing which is capable of moving information (bits) in three-dimensions. According to the research team, this innovation has the potential to improve and increase the processing and storage capabilities of next-generation electronic devices.
