Is piracy possible on any object?

Is piracy possible on any object? | 3D-Print Tech | Scoop.it
With a "Spotify for objects" being set up and the potential for everything to be pirated, is it an opportunity for developers to realise their dreams or is there a risk that their ideas will be taken for nothing?

Susanne Kahle's curator insight, July 15, 2013 5:08 AM

Scientists are trying to get graphene (an allotrope of the chemical element carbon, "C") ready for 3D printing which would be a HUGE step (e.g. due to its special properties graphene is in high demand for batteries/to store energy and also to manage extremly high temperatures).


"Complex electronics, unbreakable frames and brackets, and even sources of renewable energy could be printed in graphene. Hell, since carbon is floating around us, it may be possible for a 3D printer to pull graphene literally out of thin air."
