"Thanks to advances in technology and drops in price, it’s become possible to imagine a 3-D printer in every home. What’s less clear is what we’ll do with these wondrous machines. It’ll be decades, if ever, before we can print a pair of Nikes. Luckily, Japanese design studio Takt Project predicts a future where mass-produced products and 3-D printed parts can be mashed up to create wild new wares."
"FigurePrints is a service that allow gamers to convert videogame characters and settings into 3-D printed statues. With it, a statue of an undead warlock or a cityscape of creative digital urban planning can be immortalized in colored plaster."
"Aiming to replace the ubiquitous photobooth, japanese omote 3D have conceived a limited edition pop-up installation at the eye of gyre exhibition, that reproduces personal detailed miniature action figures. ranging from 10 to 20 centimetres in height, the system utilizes a three-dimensional camera and printer to process and scan users, creating custom scale reproductions. the three-step procedure requires the user to keep still for 15 minutes while the scanners capture the data."
"In its 86-year history, the industrial design firm Teague has helped commercialize some groundbreaking technology, from the original Polaroid camera to the cabin of the 1946 Boeing Stratocruiser. They continue their legacy of innovation today with their design work on the first Xbox and the interiors of Boeing’s latest superplane, the 787 Dreamliner. And now they’ve started pushing into the 3D-printing world with the 13:30 headset, a creation they call the first “prototype as product.”
"Theo Jansen's 3D printed Strandbeest continues to evolve with an even more elaborate walking mechanism and a centipede-like walking motion. The latest evolution called 'Animaris Geneticus Ondularis' walks on twenty separate legs that move in a wave sequence. This new configuration results in a fluent walking motion, different from its twelve legged predecessors. It incorporates 122 moving parts, showcasing the complexity of mechanisms possible with 3D printed fabrication. It is also slightly larger than its predecessors. The operating principle of 'Animaris Geneticus Ondularis' is based on one of Theo Jansen's original beach walkers, the 'Animaris Ondula'."
"These days, animated movies are nearly all digital, and we’re not complaining. When we’re being dazzled by the latest CG masterpiece, we don't miss hand-drawn cels, Claymation, or stop-motion. But then we saw ParaNorman and realized what we'd been missing. The darkly comic story of a boy trying to save his hometown from a centuries-old curse (screenwriter and codirector Chris Butler describes the film as "John Carpenter meets John Hughes"), ParaNorman is the first stop-motion movie to use a 3-D color printer to create its puppets' faces. It's also the first feature from Laika Entertainment since its Oscar-nominated 2009 hit Coraline. With tens of thousands of printed parts, millions of hours of work, and billions of pixels invested, the project represents unparalleled innovation in handmade storytelling—and a new future for a 100-year-old art form."
