3D Printed Electric Car is Ready for Mass Production

The cars we drive are changing, in their capabilities, in how they’re made, and how they look. Autonomous vehicles are beginning to appear on the roads, and more and more cars are being made with 3D printed parts. Electric and hybrid cars are slowly becoming more affordable and numerous. Eventually, we may be looking at roadways […]

Students Create Fully Recyclable 3D Printed Car

It’s well known that cars, overall, are not very good for the environment. Still, they’re necessary for people to get from one place to another – it’s unlikely we’ll ever go back to the horse and buggy days – so all we can do is try to minimize their environmental impact. Some manufacturers have been […]

Hoversurf Uses 3D Printing and 3D Vision Technology to Launch Flying FORMULA Car Idea

I love the scene near the beginning of 1997 sci-fi movie The Fifth Element when “perfect being” Leeloo crashes into cab driver Korben’s flying taxi; she asks him for help when the police come for her, and a wild flying car chase through the skies of futuristic Manhattan ensues. Flying cars still seem like science fiction […]
