The shuttle fascinated me as a child and I even had a giant mural of it in my room. My inner child is giddy as you can now print your own 100% accurate space shuttle! The Smithsonian Air and Space Museum has scanned their shuttle Continue reading
Have you ever heard of a tardigrade or “water bear” before? These are some of the most resilient creatures on earth and nearly immortal. According to National Geographic:
“Tardigrades can go up to 30 years without food or water. They can also live at temperatures as cold as absolute zero or above boiling, at pressures six times that of the ocean’s deepest trenches, and in the vacuum of space.”
This Easter isn’t broken, it’s just different. Enjoy this special weekend!
As a subscriber to MIT Technology Review I was thrilled to see this article by Erin Winick about how she 3D printed her entire wedding. I thought it was cool years ago when a buddy designed and printed his wife’s ring, but Erin took things to another level. Continue reading
Have you tried the Impossible Whopper at Burger King yet? In my opinion it’s pretty impressive and these products are popping up everywhere. You don’t see slaughter-free ribeye on the market though. This is because the texture of ground meat products are relatively easy to mimic as compared to fully-textured meat such as a steak. The company Aleph Farms is trying to change this and if that wasn’t hard enough they’re doing it in space! Continue reading
Today is Halloween and hope you can find some way to incorporate 3D printing. Etsy is full of things to buy and of course you can come up with your own too. Note the picture up above is from a video rental store on my way to work. Yep, they still exist.
As a kid I didn’t have too many hobbies other than sports and video games, but one I did love was model rocketry. I remember riding my bike over to the local hobby store to get the latest Estes rocket to put together and launch (probably losing to a roof, tree or just in short order). From childhood rockets have always been a thing for me, so when I saw Relativity Space marrying together rockets and 3D printing I was thrilled. Other companies have 3D printed select components, but Relativity Space is essentially 3D printing the whole darn thing. Continue reading
