Will.i.am 3D Printing People

Will.i.am’s take on ‘3D printed people’ will make you stupider than you were yesterday

Will.i.am’s take on ‘3D printed people’ will make you stupider than you were yesterday

I’m going to totally sound like a hipster here but… I liked the Black Eyed Peas before they were cool. I was playing “Joints & Jams” on my college radio station in the early 2000s just a couple of years before “Where Is The Love?” blew up and made them household names. But unlike actual hipsters, I didn’t begrudge the BEP when they “sold out” and found massive success — I’m just not a hater like that. More →

We are a step closer to a smartphone that weighs less than a dime

You may not have heard of them before, but I can tell you that Aerogels are cool. They are ultra-porous materials that are whipped up from silica gel or even aluminum oxide and may weigh just 15% more than air. Because they consist of so many microscopic air pockets, they are incredibly effective insulators.  More →

Interest in 3D food printing seems to be crashing pretty spectacularly

The 3D printing market has seen an explosion of creativity in recent months and it’s hard to say whether this stems from healthy demand or from a tech industry bubble that’s still inflating at a frightening pace. Either way, the latest bloom of innovation comes from Oxford-based company called Dovetailed and it has just launched a 3D printer that “extends a molecular-gastronomy technique called spherification.” To put it bluntly, the machine creates spherical blobs of jelly that adhere together forming raspberry-shaped delicacies. The company calls these concoctions “fresh and organic 3D fruits on demand,” although they do sound a lot like plain old jellies.  More →
