Kickstand

Can that kickstand double as a bottle opener?  Some of the craft beers that I like aren't twist off and I always seem to have my electronic leash, (phone), with me.

I had to Laugh! You show a picture of the woman's bathingsuit top with the headline: "The Best Things to Come Out of a 3D Printer."

Really? You guys crack me up!

Nice slideshow. I don't see any metal 3D printing.

To speed up production, imagine a 3D image projected into a vat of a special liquid that solidifies as a result of the image tuned on.

Yes, Ann, good point. It will probably take awhile before materials advance to the point where they would be comfortable. Still, it's a nice idea to think about...and I imagine someday the technology will catch up!

I was sharing this story with someone earlier today, and he was telling about how they created an ear with a 3D printer that was sugically attached to a person.

I preume that when the Urbee goes into production, it won't use 3D printing. I wonder how big of a production run they're planning.

It's true Charles that Haute Couture is never comfortable.  Like everything on the runway, it's not for the real world.  3D printed jewelry is pleasant though.  That's been available at the MOMA store for years.

Comfort clothing

Regarding the comfort of the 3D-printed clothing: I draw the line on comfort when clothes are able to stand up by themselves. That material does not look comfortable.

3D Printing

The rise of 3D printing, for low quantity items, makes all kinds of sense to me. But I wonder for a smartphone case if they will really be able to compete on price with manufacturers who are obviously offering a smaller selection of product but have the advantage of mass quantities.

Lauren I believe that this 3D printing will greatly reduce the cost by reducing sock maintaining, transportation no labor involvement of production

Imagine a shoo shop where they are having only the sample or some IPods where will show all the possible designs and colours. Customer walk in to the shop and do the modification he likes to have and print a shoo jest for him.
