If you had a 3D printer and could make aaaaanything, what you make? The correct answer is: more 3D printers that can print money. 3D printers are like genies, really, without the 3-wish deal going on. You want a figurine? Done! How about some food? Okay, sure… With this technology we can do pretty much anything right now. Even as far as 3D printed organic tissue. That’s freaking mind blowing, isn’t it?
Let’s see what other cool or weird stuff people have made with 3D printing.
Snacks and fast food
As mentioned before, you can actually “print” food! People from NASA and Cornell University are currently working on perfecting 3D printing various kinds of food. So far they’ve successfully recreated sea scallops, cookies and banana-flavored gelatin, so it’s already a huge step forward. In just a few years, maybe decades, from now we’ll all be using these wonderful machines to create pizza and beer.
Solo Finger Pen
I’ve added this neat device not because it’s something revolutionary, and may help fight the world hunger, but for its outstanding design. Just look at that 3D printed talon! Would definitely pay $10 for this thing.
A Working Gun
It’s crazy how stuff made entirely of plastic can shoot out bullets. Of course, at the beginning these plastic guns could withstand only a few shots, but recently a company called Defense Distributed shared the necessary files to the public so anyone could print their own firearms using 3D printer at home.
