DailyDirt: 3D Printing Doesn't Require Dorky Glasses
from the urls-we-dig-up dept
Every so often, there’s a catchy gadget label that tries to make things sound cooler than they are. For example, I’ve actually seen sunglasses that advertised that they provided “HD vision” — even though they were non-prescription. The “HD” fad may be dying down, but the “3D” train might just be boarding. The development of 3D printing technology, though, is legitimately cool. Here are just a few examples.
Growing certain simple human organs from scratch is possible, and more complex organs are on the way. “I just do eyes, ju-, ju-, just eyes… just genetic design, just eyes. You Nexus, huh? I design your eyes.” [url] A 3D-printed flute took 15 hours to print — with some assembly required. Maybe musical instruments will get a lot cheaper — and encourage more kids to play them (interactively with video games, perhaps?). [url] Printed food could be made from soylent green ink. Actually, it’s not people, but it could be — if it were combined with the human organ printing project. [url]

If you ware 3D glasses whilst operating a 3D printer does is destroy the space time continuum?

Wow, now I can print a talking wedding ring for wife 🙂
Reprap seems cooler to me than the Objet:
Man, I take my eyes off 3D printers for one minute and they become 10x cooler!
I really should get involved in that scene somehow
So I geuss we’ll have homeland security going after those nasty penis pirates now…..
not all that cool unless you can make it demand a sammich be made…. then its totally cool.
This post is probably going to get some visits by raelien’s. They are heavy into the whole printing up new bodies and mind uploading thing.
By the way great blade runner quote.
Heh. Glad someone out there caught my Blade Runner reference!
3D printer using paper
Nice. I love this 3D printer from guys in Ireland – prints 3D on paper so much cheaper to operate: http://www.mcortechnologies.com/
This is really very nice concept. Thanks for sharing this concept with us.
