My app is on the app store! Astro dating 2012

I partnered with a world renown astrologer to make an application that will tell you if it’s a good day to have a date. Download it on the itunes store!

I was seriously considering buying a 3d printer. When I first started looking into 3d printing the machines were 10k, but thanks to China, we can now buy one for $1500!

Cheap 3d Printing

Perhaps the most impressive thing I’ve seen printed was this RC air plane.

We are almost there people, soon our thoughts can become inventions in a matter of hours.

Now the only issue is control. Good thing guns need a barrel that can withstand the heat and pressure. But I can see someone constructing parts that make semi automatics into automatics. I’m not trying to scare anyone, but things are really starting to get interesting.

Yes, this is real.

3D printed AR-15 parts challenge firearm regulation

    but don’t 3d printers only print in ABS plastic? I dunno how well that would
    stand up to the pressure exerted by a bullet. (can they print metal parts now?)

    I haven’t seen any that print metal yet. Also I think you are right about the bullet pressure thing.

    3D printers *ARE* pretty damn awesome tho considering all the stuff you can
    make with them. If i could afford one, i might never have to build/prototype
    my inventions with lego again. I always get nervous, watching over my shoulder
    and shit experimenting with lego tho, cause it’s made for children. Be like
    “What? I’m not playing with lego. I am prototyping a computer-controlled motor-mount for my cantenna! (If i could afford that damned mindstorm controller,
    i have been thinking about writing a program that makes it “lock on” to a signal
    and follow it, so i wouldn’t have to be in one spot neccisarily while connecting
    to a wifi hotspot.

    Nothing to be ashamed of lego is the way to go, we used it in university for design projects.

Write something, I dare you...
