Texas students use 3D printed otoscope to fight hearing loss in developing world

While most biomedical research projects involving 3D printing have access to immense budgets, one team of Texas students just proved that even low-cost desktop 3D printing can have a huge impact on the medical world. For just $6.42, they can build a 3D printed otoscope smartphone attachment, which can help diagnose preventable hearing loss. A perfect tool for doctors and patients in developing countries where a lot of people have smartphones, but hardly have access to medical care.
