@a.saji – I think nothings impossible when you have 3D printer at home. You could easily create any object you want in minutes, isn't that amazing. Remember the traditional dot matrix printers, who would have thought there would be a time when we could create and object physically.

@a.saji – I feel 3D printing is a different angle of thinking; I would love to see how 3D printing happens and the final product. I am sure it would be around us very soon, couple of months most probably.

True Rob it's nice to hear that the Elizabeth is a surfer, Elizabeth why don't you share some photos.
Elizabeth I have heard something call personalize Surf boards, is it true? If so there is a great advantage of 3D printing surf boards.

I agree, Elizabeth, 3D printing is going primetime. It seems to be doing so in a number of industries simultaneously.

I;m a surfer too, and though 3D printing is a novel idea for surfboards, nothing can recreate the true art of a board maker.

Good for you Suffer Elizabeth! With 3D printing, there are some limitations in the type of materials you can use. Does this limitation compromise the quality of the custom boards?

@Shehan: 3D printing offers a huge variety of options for the users. Its not only printing. A new era in the world of printing.

Some of our culture's most enduring robots appeared in the 80s. The Aliens series produced another evil android, and we saw light robot fare in the form of Short Circuit. Two of the great robots of all time also showed up: The Terminator and RoboCop.
A soundproofing invention called Acoustiblok recently won a television challenge to silence an air horn with only a fraction of an inch of polymer material.
Robots came into their own in the 1970s. Gone were the low-budget black-and-white B movies. Now robots roamed in full-color feature films with A-list actors.
Major global metropolitan areas are implementing a vast number of technology, energy, transportation, and Internet projects to make the metropolis a friendlier, greener, safer, and more sustainable place to be.
Here’s a look at robots depicted in movies and on TV during the 1950s and 1960s. We tried to collect the classics here, omitting the scores of forgettable B movies such as Santa Claus Conquers the Martians and Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine. Stay tuned for slideshows of robot stars from later decades.
