DailyDirt: Even Cooler 3D Printers On The Way

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Most homes don't have a 3D printer... yet. But just as most homes didn't have a "computer" or an internet connection just a few years ago, technology can change quickly, and 3D printers could become ubiquitous relatively quickly. With 3D printers in your kitchen or living room, you could print up a Left Shark whenever you felt like it, but hopefully, no one will be doing that too often. If you already have a MakerBot or some other 3D printer, check out a few other developments that could be nice to have. After you've finished checking out those links, take a look at our Daily Deals for cool gadgets and other awesome stuff.

    Printing furniture so I don't have to move it sounds good, as long as I can break it down and throw it in the recycling bin.

    But think of the children. we will have to find some other way for those poor starving designers to get paid since 3d piracy will make people not want to be designers.

    But don't worry the MIAA (manufacturer industry association of America) will put messages into every design telling people that bought plans legally to not pirate the plans. If we let everyone print their own stuff then we will have complete anarchy since law enforcement won't be able to get accurate layouts of the furniture before they SWAT a house.

    3D Printing a 3D printer

    The real money is when someone can just print a 3D printer. But then I'm sure someone will try to print a 3D printer that is currently printing a different 3D printer. Then we all are doomed!
