President Obama recently visited Boise State University to take in some of the school's 3D printing technology, as well as the new College of Innovation. Obama went to Boise State’s College of Engineering and the school’s New Product Development Lab, which is a collaboration at the Engineering school and managed by the College of Business and Economics.

Among the various prototypes and 3D printed objects, Obama was exposed to Boise State's work on 3D printing electronics, using flexible, light, and conductive graphene nano-materials, which can be printed in stacks onto small, inexpensive sensors, and resistors.
