It’s no secret that I’ve been blabbering on a butt load about 3D printing lately. And why not since this not only will be the next big thing since slice bread but will actually make the sliced bread as well.

Now, being a fan of Ted.com I feel in my heart of heart of ace of hearts that I have to share this with you. Here are some of the future uses of 3D Printing:

• Rocket parts
• Guns
• Meat and Leather (Oh, yes I did!)
• Any food
• Housing
• Liquid metal parts
• Bionic ears, jaw bones (and other human parts)
• High fashion
• Moon base

Okay, there are only 9 things listed instead of 10. Where is the blasted 10th bullet point! The point I’m trying to make, however, is that 3D printing is start to come into our homes. The price of printers has come down into the $500 – $2,500 range for you and me.

And for high end printers, there is one flying off soon to the International Space Station that will make parts to repair the International Space Station. How cool is that? No more long shipping times from planet Earth-o.

  1. I actually Believe blog, “3D Printing – Next Big Thing – You Know It Is | Future Technology 500” was perfect!
    I personally couldn’t agree along with u even more! At last appears like I found a web site very well worth browsing. Thanks for the post, Alejandro
