One: 3D printing of human organs is getting closer and closer to reality, and we can already start designing human organs as needed. As an organ designer, develop a genetic algorithm to form an organ that fits perfectly with the recipient's body, while also satisfying the patient's personal preferences. From artificial livers or heart valves to organs that communicate with dolphins. As long as you imagine it, you can design it.

Second: To ensure the safety of air traffic, it is necessary to ensure that birds stay away from the airport. By intimidating and forcing birds away from aircraft engines, both passengers and birds will be able to ensure safety during take-off and landing of the aircraft.
Third: Usually, maintenance workers often need to read the technical manual of the equipment to be repaired. This is their least favorite part of the job. This situation is gone forever! There is a translucent augmented reality screen on your helmet. The maintenance plan will be immediately projected on the screen during maintenance, and human-computer interaction will be carried out with the projected information during maintenance.

Olaf Schmidt, Vice President of Textiles and Textile Technology at Messe Frankfurt, said: "Every two years, Techtextil will bring the latest applications in the field of textile materials. Top international experts from the fields of construction, automotive, healthcare, fashion, personal protection, etc. will gather Here, we will discuss together lightweight, durable and sustainable materials.” The
2019 Techtextil Innovation Award was awarded on the first day of the exhibition, commending outstanding new technologies and developments in the fields of technical textiles, nonwovens and functional apparel fabrics. The winners were selected by a jury composed of experts from all over the world, and the exhibition also set up a special exhibition area to showcase their work. It is reported that this is the 15th award of the award.
For example (1): "Textile mining" uses functional textiles to recover high-value precious metals or rare metals from waste and wastewater will gradually become popular in the next few years. In this case, a big challenge is to identify potentially available secondary resources and develop low-cost processes to selectively separate and recover metals. Now a textile-based adsorbent material has been innovatively developed, which can selectively enrich and recover precious metals from industrial wastewater. This is achieved by finishing the textile substrate. The innovative textile is composed of inexpensive materials and can be mass-produced by using typical machinery from the textile finishing process. A recent project successfully recycled textiles worth about 1,000 Euros, while the consumed textiles themselves cost only a few Euros.
For example (2): Cork yarn-new biodegradable cork yarns are currently in growing demand for new textile solutions, especially in the field of ecological design and sustainable development. Researchers are thinking about how to go beyond the use in clothing and home textiles Cork material. The "Cork-a-Tex" project is to develop textile substrates for cork waste, that is, used cork stoppers, old cork products, etc. Finally, an innovative high-performance yarn processed from cotton and cork waste is obtained, and at the same time it combines the characteristics of the textile base material to achieve the comfort, touch and appearance level, as well as the natural warmth and elasticity of the cork.
