3-D printers exist?


Yeah, a startup in the SF Bay Area has brought down the cost to around $500. My friend has one pre-ordered and is looking forward to printing the list of a jillion things he has written down that he wants to prototype. He gets it sometime February. I'll post some pictures of the things he prints out, when he does.

Just let me unpack my 3D printer and I'll get back to you


OH WAIT NO ONE HAS THEM





I hope the idea spreads though, and that the pirate bay survives to keep feeding it.

Rapid prototyping has existed for ages, it's used a lot in chemical industry. You just need a UV light, a polymer solution, a computer and a large amount of spare time aha.

all you'd need is the neck, pickups and electronics.

My University is developing one... It would be cool to work where it's being tested, instead I'm at the Theatre Department blasting Bon Jovi concerts

Because he's the hero The Pit deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Dark Anus.
