In Maryland, a major push to become a 3D printing hub [Forbes]: “Close to $3.5 million has been pledged on Kickstarter to the Micro, a tabletop machine advertised as the world’s first consumer-friendly 3D printer. Barely a week after the early-April launch of its crowdfunding campaign, M3D, the two-man outfit responsible for designing the printer and its corresponding software, broke $2 million in pledges.”

Maryland, French companies to develop bacterial detection device [MDBIZ News]: “Two potentially life-saving technologies, developed 4,000 miles apart, will soon join together thanks to a partnership of the BioMaryland Center and the Medicen Paris Region. The Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development (DBED) announced the international project on Wednesday, from the BIO International Conference 2014 in San Diego.”
