3D Printed Terminator Head

3D Printed Terminator Head Electrifi

This Terminator head was made from 3D printing. Its LED eyes are powered by 3D printed superconductive copper called Electrifi.

Electrifi is about 100 times more conductive than most patented materials. But using a 3D printable conductive material is trickier than just putting copper in a printer because sending copper out of a hot nozzle makes it lose all its properties. So researchers mixed copper with other materials to keep it conductive. The team at Duke University is still testing the limits of Electrifi.
