Submission + - National Lab Working to Mix Metals and Polymers for 3D Printing (computerworld.com)

With those advances, a company could build, for example, body armor for soldiers that are stronger and lighter. If their work pans out, they’ll create materials that have properties that simply don’t exist today.
