Another great article on why VR is happening now, and how it won't be a repeat of VR in the 90's. They've justified their view point by pointing out how much stronger our technology is today, and how VR couldn't have possibly worked 20 years ago, because they didn't have the technology that we have today.

Timothy Lawlor's curator insight, March 26, 2015 6:18 AM

What was striking about this article was the cost, not just the idea of printing a car. Cars had been created using 3D printers before, however the cost for this particular car was intriguing.

Suyash Vaidya's curator insight, March 26, 2015 10:13 PM

The 3D printing of cars is an awesome invention but apart from the way it looks and the cost of the car and so on I think that the quality is a bit bad. I am saying that because in this article it said that the exterior of the car is fully printed in 3D but the interior of the car is still 2D. So wasting the time of printing just the exterior in 3D and not the interior is just no use. Also the speed of the car can only reach a maximum of 40km/h. So I think in the next 5 to 10 years they should improve there 3D printing quality and how it looks from both inside and outside. For example the exterior and interior should be both 3D printed and the speed of the vehicle should increase more. 

Phillip Holmes's curator insight, March 29, 2015 9:58 PM

In this article Whitney Hipolite writes about how Local Motors, Strati and Sanya Sihai have been making innovations in 3D printing cars. The article mainly focuses on Sanya Sihai's newly unveiled 3D printed car that cost $1770 to build, and a month and a half to build. This is useful for this topic as it proves a good look at some advances that Chinese companies are making at the moment, which can help determine which advances will be made in the future.

The students of tomorrow will demand the curriculum of tomorrow. This statement engulfs the idea that education has to change with the times. What used to work, no longer does. We have to make some aggressive changes to education in order to support students in developing the skills that employers expect. I am privileged to work for  district that has many of these new technologies in place. There is a definite awareness in education that our instruction and pedagogies need to be adjusted or revamped to fit our learners needs. The constant news flashes are not new and we are on it folks!
