Chinese Turn to Customized 3D Printed Braces for Scoliosis Treatment

Chinese Turn to Customized 3D Printed Braces for Scoliosis Treatment

The medical applications for 3D printing continue to expand, encompassing numerous areas within both internal and external medicine. For instance we’ve see dozens of different 3D printed medical implants, as well as 3D models used for surgical preparation, and of course we also have seen the vast array of external 3D printed devices such as […]

eGarbigune, the Mini 3D Printer Made from Recycled Components

Not everyone can afford to buy their own desktop 3D printer, but that does’t mean that they can’t have one. With a little bit of skill (or maybe a lot), some old electronic components and a lot of patience, anyone can construct their very own desktop 3D printer at a cost which may actually shock […]

Good Morning 2029! A World I Don't Recognize

The thing I love most about technology is that its progress is oftentimes plotted along an exponential curve.  As time moves forward the rate of progress increases by an ever expanding amount. Moore’s law is the most well known example of exponential growth within an industry. Moore’s law states that the number of transistors which […]
