There is an entire generation of porn addicts now cursing the era they live in.

These guys made 7x their $50K kickstarter goal within 4 days of launching the project.

They are designing the first 3D Printer which costs under $100.

How it works (kinda unique)

Quote
The peachy printer is a Photolithographic printer. That means it uses a controlled beam of light to cure light sensitive resin into hard objects. The peachy moves a laser beam along the X and Y axes to create the shape of the object, while using a drip system to control the level of the resin on the Z axis which determines the height of the object.

The object you want to print must first become a 3D model in Blender. The software we wrote as an add on to blender takes the data from that 3D model and translates it into an audio waveform. It then plays the audio file out to the printer through the headphone jack in your computer. This waveform drives a pair of electro magnetic mirrors. The higher the volume, the higher the voltage, the more the mirrors move. The purpose of these mirrors is to reflect and control the path of the laser beam. By using the audio waveform generated from the 3D model data to drive the mirrors, we are able to get the laser beam to draw out the shape of the object. That's takes care of the X and Y axes.

Now let's talk about the drip system that creates movement on the Z axis. The salt water in the top container syphons down to a drip feed. The rate of this drip feed is controlled by a valve. As each drip leaves the feed, it passes through two contact points creating an electrical connection that is detected by your computers microphone jack. The drip continues to fall into the bottom container where it causes the resin floating atop it to rise. The software listens to the microphone level, counting each drip that falls and calculates the resultant level of the resin. This allows the software to send the layer that corresponds with the current Z-level of the resin. This process continues until the print is complete!





I have also heard rumors that there are plugins for Blender and other 3D studio software suites which can generate models from photographs. This is really getting out of control. We are rapidly approaching a point where you can take a few pics of an object and then clone yourself a resin copy of it.

If I had this tech, I would be printing out miniature copies of me and my friends which we could use to play D&D. THE DOOR FLIES OPEN AND A HORDE OF CRAMULANS RUSH IN

I've tried it. It works. "A few" is about 50.

these guys are selling "the world's craziest toothbrush". They make a 3D image of your mouth and then print a toothbrush perfectly shaped for your teeth.

It looks like a bite guard with bristles coming out of it (pics in the link). They claim that it only takes 6 seconds to give your teeth a really good brush.

I want one!

I'm a little neurotic about dental hygiene. That sounds AWESOME.

It's nice to know that the future is able to bring you giant statues of yourself on demand.

I only had enough resin for two vast and trunk-less legs. Nothing beside remains.

Glad someone got the joke, even if it was 4 years later.

I was a backer for that project, The guys in my house already want me to print of replacement limbs for their warhammer stuff. If I like it, and actually put it to good use, I'm going to spring for something you can make larger templates from.

This was depressing, this project went bad on Kickstarter (like many do), but it went unbelievably bad with one partner asking the other where the money was gone to find out he had siphoned off 700k to build a house. I would have been ok with them finding out that the project was in-viable or something like that, parts cost more then expected etc, but outright theft was a very depressing way to end it.
Is that why you won't let it see you, why you can't bear the gaze? Because you've done terrible things.
Then there are the transgressions you never even knew you committed, those are the worst because those you can never forget, all you can do is suspect.
