ProJet 4500, new from 3d systems...prints in color, faster + durable

Oh comes the future!
I hope the fidelity is something they'll be able to get better too.
I think it's just a matter of time/it's inevitable.

Why? not What, not How...

After seeing this TED talk, it made me question how clear my "why" was. As it turns out, not very, so after some time of writing and thinking, I ended up with this: In this age of mass manufactured products, large companies design and sell objects targeting broad groups of people. However, we are in a unique point in time where a revolution has begun. The maker movement and 3d printing empower and celebrate the creative abilities and uniqueness of individuals. It enables people to create and purchase things otherwise difficult or impossible to create or obtain. As a designer, I love this because it gives me the freedom to explore ideas, design things and share them, even if only for a few people, even if only for 1 person. The best thing we can do is be more of what we are, no one else can do that. Like what you like, do what you love. My objects are designed with this in mind. Celebrate your individuality, your unique, quirky, wierd awesomeness. Be More You.

D-Dalus by IAT21, flies, floats, quiet, simple to fix...

via Popsci
" the Austrian engineering firm IAT21 set out to construct a flying machine that floated like a hummingbird, traveled as fast as a jet, was as quiet as a hot-air balloon, and was simple enough that a car mechanic could repair it."

A completely new kind of propulsion system. Another article on the D-Dalus by PopSci.

Solid Rain

via Core77
Absorbs 10x its weight in water and releases it slowly into the soil. Ideal for droughts. Isn't soluble in water, but what if it is consumed? Nonetheless, very interesting.

Energy Harvesting...Free Electricity

Tesla wanted to give everyone free energy, but his vision and project was unfunded by JPMorgan. It appears the idea (of free electricity) and technology (to make it real) cannot be held down forever (so, I hope).
