I mentioned before that I like to track scientific and technological advancements and generally be a geek about them, even though I couldn’t begin to tell you how they work. I think part of it is because I really like the idea that we keep advancing as a species, and even though I know there’s some really cool stuff that has happened in my lifetime (like how the Internet and I are pretty much the same age), it’s still a lot of fun to see stuff that I can hardly believe, and be all:
You’ve probably already heard about one of my favorite recent-ish inventions: the 3D printer. If you don’t know about this technological marvel, here’s a link about it, or you can just take my word when I say that this device is as amazing as it sounds.
This is a thing that can print real objects, in 3D, and is awesome.
Here’s X instances where 3D printers did awesome things:
-When a man printed his son an artificial hand:
-When a doctor practiced surgery on a model heart and saved a child’s life:
-Every time in the future that 3D printing will be awesome! There’s more videos on www.3ders.org
So, once again, science is mind-boggling and I’m just:
*= Which is still kinda iffy, but very cool despite the setbacks.
**= Which better be called “Auto-autos.” You know, like Autonomous Automobiles? No? Ugh, you’re no fun.
