Siemens, Local Motors Partner to Speed Development of 3D Printed Cars

It’s an entertaining exercise to think about what cars may look like in 10, 20, 50 years. Science fiction writers love to speculate about the vehicles of the future – right now, I’m reading a book set in the not-too-distant future in which autonomous cars are more common than manually driven ones, and all signs […]

Italian Company MQB’s New York Showcase Includes 3D Printed Car for Children

Remember those “driveable” toy cars everyone had when they were kids? Some of them were the Flintstones-style kind that required you to sit with your feet through the open floor in order to push yourself along, which is the kind I remember the most. My cousins had one, and whenever I was dropped off at […]
