One man is using the power of 3-D printing to try and benefit the world.
Alex Schofield said to IFL Science that he had a friend ask if he could 3-D print coral, which led him down the road of starting the project. Coral reefs have been threatened by pollution, overfishing, and climate change, and according to IFL Science, SECORE International says about half of the world’s reefs have died in the last thirty years.
Schofield’s creation is being tested in the San Francisco Bay, and marine life has begun to populate the reef. He hopes his work can be used by others in the wild and other applications.
