3D printing really helps give car manufacturers ideas on new models that should be made and introduced into the car market. It helps manufacturers get the best way on how to design cars and to make them beautiful. It is like preparing a blue print to use in building a car. With these the manufacturers tend to effectively and correctly produce the desire car without having to start over and over again when any problem occurs.

I agree Charles. Imagine the time and effort being saved by using 3D printing just for the exterior of a car. Combine that with the production of other parts by 3D printing and you can well imagine the overall cost and time being saved using this technology.

Cool slideshow, Jenn. It's amazing what 3D printing can do for the exterior of a car. These are beautiful cars. 3D also offers other advantges, like consolidating parts and incorporating channels and ducting for wiring.

If you see a hitchhiker along the road in Canada this summer, it may not be human. That’s because a robot is thumbing its way across our neighbor to the north as part of a collaborative research project by several Canadian universities.
Stanford University researchers have found a way to realize what’s been called the “Holy Grail” of battery-design research -- designing a pure lithium anode for lithium-based batteries. The design has great potential to provide unprecedented efficiency and performance in lithium-based batteries that could substantially drive down the cost of electric vehicles and solve the charging problems associated with smartphones.

Robots in films during the 2000s hit the big time; no longer are they the sidekicks of nerdy character actors.
