The proper way to put an Arduino in a Raspberry Pi - Hack a Day

The proper way to put an Arduino in a Raspberry Pi - Hack a Day | Big and Open Data, FabLab, Internet of things | Scoop.it
For all their hoopla, the GPIO pins on the Raspberry Pi aren't terribly useful on their own. Sure, you can output digital data, but our world is analog and there just isn't any ADCs or DACs on these magical Raspi pins.

Additive manufacturing is changing how manufacturing work. You no longer need to make a prototype. You are able to just make a design and print the model. No exact size but a scaled size tht gives you an idea of what the product could look like.
Evan Astley's comment, April 4, 2014 12:00 PM
5 axis machining and wire edm are new technolgy sources fro medical parts. These machines are able to make these parts because of the ability they can manuver.

3d printing is able to make parts and give people the idea of what the part will look like.
