Now it won't cost you an arm and a leg for an arm or a leg.
When Faith Lennox was born, she had no circulation in her left forearm and doctors were forced to amputate just below the elbow when she was only nine months old. Kids like Faith outgrow prosthetic limbs quickly and they're very expensive - but now 3D printing has changed all of that.Read More
You gotta hand it to them.

To quote Victoria McNally, "That is literally a Drunk Uncle joke."
Instructables member 3DigitalCooks uses icing colors and a Pinya2 (a 3d printer designed to work with liquids) to craft mazes, teeny-tiny buildings and beautiful, Lisa Frank-esque designs out of hummus. Why? I don't know, dude, why is the sky blue? Why do we wake up every morning? What if God was one of us? Accept that we can probably build a city out of hummus in 2015 but we don't have flying cars yet and move on with your life.Read More
Ever wanted to 3D-print your own car? Well, some college students have done just that.Read More
Using mechanics based on everyone's favorite cephalopods (no, not cuttlefish, you weirdo), scientists from the University of Southampton, MIT, and the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology have developed what I am now dubbing the Hella Fast OctoBot, because why the heck not.Read More
Oh God, please don't beam me up, Scotty.
In case all of the recent talk about artificial intelligence wasn't enough of a technologically-driven existential crisis for you, we now have a 3D printer that will "teleport" objects by beaming their specifications to another printer and then destroying the original object. But why destroy the original? Well we don't want any Thomas Rikers running around, do we?Read More
Come on, cat. Let's f*** shit up.
