Soft material for soft actuators | Nature Communications
An ethanol infused 3D printed silicone matrix apparently makes for a pretty good soft actuator that requires low activation energy, but it is effectively thermal based, which makes environmental conditions and position holding a pain

A synthetic pathway for the fixation of carbon dioxide in vitro | Science
Artificial CO2 fixation cycle (CETCH) made from a combo of 11 enzymes found across animals and plants appears to be 2-3 times faster and 25% more energy efficient than the Calvin cycle, but outputs a weird glyoxylate (which can be further converted to other stuff but...) rather than glucose so now just need to stuff a synthetic bacterium with DNA to build and operate those 11 enzymes to see if it really is better than photosynthesis. Primary boost is replacing RuBisCO with the enzyme ECR for better initial CO2 capture.
