The Future Is Here

No, I'm not talking about this,


Flying cars, meh, that is so yesterday.
No, I am talking about this,



How fucking cool is that?!
If you can imagine it and can get it on a computer, that thing can make it.
The possibilities are endless.
Have a rare antique part that no one makes anymore?
Clean it up, have it scanned and presto changeO, there ya go, a plastic replica that can be used to make a mold for a new casting.

That thing is off the charts cool.

H/T my friend Suzanne and my Cousin Tom who both sent me a link to the video within two minutes of each other.

  1. I bet tool and dye engineers are worried about this contraption... a person could take a patented part or specialized tool, scan it, mold it, then produce an exact replica of the part or tool.
    Wonder if it would work on a human hand or foot if someone needed one scanned for a prosthetic?
    Personally, I'd like to scan Jenna Jameson, then have a latex mold made from her scan... For scientific purposes, only, of course. Purely science.
