3D Printer That Uses PAPER!
MCOR Technologies uses paper and colored ink to produce ultra-realistic 3D models of human heads (among other things). You can’t buy one! But you can rent it for $15,866 per year.
3D-Printed Ink Cartridges
InkFactory is making 3D-printed inkjet printer cartridges which they fill with generic ink to avoid paying the tremendous markup.
Food from 3D Printers
NASA is studying the possibility of replicating Star Trek food replicators by 3D printing edible meals for future space missions.
Printing You and Parts of You
You can even print out body parts, like this ear, or these prosthetics, or even a tiny little model of yourself.
The List Goes On and On
Other unusual projects include printing 3D shelters for pet hermit crabs, and 3D-printed shoes – not for the hermit crabs. Researchers are also going back in time by using CAT scans to print 3D models of dinosaur skeletons & King Tut’s mummy…. while others jump forward to printing 3D bikinis and, yes, even sex toys.
