3D Printing, can society. (18)

This could also be good against oppressive governments.
Think of this:
People have been able to DIY a working cell phone before, in the past.
Before 3D printers there were working yet experimental circuit boards (read motherboards) that could be printed from normal inkjet printers.
And with 3D printers people have been able to print solar panels.

If and when I get my hands on this shit I am going to be printing fucking solar powered MIDs and cell phones, meaning no Gov' or corporate based hardware level monitoring or interference crap.

He also talks about using trash as its source material. Very cool. Now throw a solar panel or wind turbine in with it.
Independent, off the grid, manufacturing that helps keep Earth clean. Wow.
Who else is exited for this?

I'm excited. It's quite wonderfully disruptive technology~

It will be able to print small projectile weapons eventually. Then government will come in and a pass laws on it so it cant print the weapons.
Then hackers will Jailbreak it.

> using trash as its source material.

This is a bit dubious, especially the way it's described in the video. I predict it'll be a long time before you can print stuff without clean input materials (ink cartridges).

Kind of like how computers don't have artificial intelligence yet, despite all the dreaming about it. It's a related technology, sure, but the problem's a lot harder than they're giving it credit for.

Of interest:

Basically a DIY 3D printer that eventually aims to:

  • Let people share and download objects over the internet.
  • Be capable of printing itself in some capacity, and thus replicate.

Pretty exciting.

This whole idea is cool. I'm imagining making parts to a chair in some Google Sketchup like program, "printing" the parts, fitting them together like lego pieces, then sitting the the chair feeling awesome.
