3D printer array can create huge objects in a single print (Tomorrow Daily 338)

Culture
[MUSIC] Greetings citizens of the Internet, welcome to Tomorrow Daily, the best geek talk show in the known universe. I'm Ashley Esqueda. And I'm Jeff Cannata, and today is headlines day. And of course Because it's today, we have to start the show talking about holoportation. Microsoft uploaded a video showing off a HoloLens demo late last week. Describing it on their Deb Blog as quote a new type of 3-D capture technology that allows high quality 3-D models of people to be reconstructed, compressed, and transmitted anywhere in the world in real-time. unquote. Could this be the future of video call apps like Skype and Hangouts? I think it might be. This is Mike Teavee is what this is. This is pretty awesome. Am I coming in clear? I said am I coming in clear? That's my, kids, ask your parents what Willy Wonka is. Or your grandparents. Boy. Yeah, there's a little tiny mic TV and then he shows up in your living room, it's amazing. So cool. I'm excited about it. I want a holographic. It's Star Wars, it's holograms you can talk to. It's really good stuff. Speaking of really good stuff, Autodesk has a very interesting 3D printing array that is going to enable people to print really big stuff. Project [UNKNOWN] is the network of 3D printers designed to print different pieces of the same item at the same time. Meaning, it could print something large and complicated in a much shorter amount of time in printing out one part at a time. The software for project [UNKNOWN] Splits up the plans into little slices, and then gives each slice it's own 3D print station that is part of an array. So each slice gets printed all at the same time and at the end the result is a fully completed piece. So they talk about printing, you know rotors, and all sorts of really big things. Even 3D printing a car. But then I gotta put it together. Well no, it's all done. I know but it's in pieces. No,no You've got pieces of a thing Really big pieces of stuff and then it's much less than just putting these small things one at a time, and it's really neat because they said you can scale this huge. You can make 50 3D printing bots that are all part of the same array, all printing something at the same time. That's pretty amazing. I especially like the fact that you can, it will cut the printing time down because you're using multiple printers all at once. Yeah, they said 80 to 90% efficiency improvements. Which story should we talk about on Thursday, cuz holoportation feels, it's really cool, it's really futuristic, but I feel like their might actually be more To futuristics like items and technology in the 3D printing story. All right, I will go with your 3D printing story. But I wanna be haloporting immediately if not sooner. Guys, get our your Hololenses. Clearly we all have them. [LAUGH] Don't you? [LAUGH] Only 30k for a hololens. Only like a million dollars. If you guys wanna talk about what we talk about on the show, feel free to #HEYTD. Yeah, if you've got a comment about Printing large things and you wanna be involved in our conversation. We'd love to incorporate what you say into our discussion on Thursday. So use that hashtag, it'll be great. Yeah. Tell us what massive thing you would 3D print with a giant 3D printing array from Autodesk, the Project Escher. Because I'm really curious as to what you guys come up with. I would 3D print a holoportation device. Well, giant robot. Okay. Well,there's that. I would just make a 100 foot tall version of Genghis. [LAUGH] That's literally what I would do. All right guys, let's talk about our phonetographer for the day. [MUSIC] Today's phonetographer of the day is Aidan. Who took this on his iPhone 5S and it looks like he used a little panorama mode. Yeah, it's pretty delightful. He wrote to us and said, hi guys, I am eight and I love your show. I took this picture while skiing in Northern Minnesota on my iPhone 5S and I totally give you permission to use it in the show. And that was, this looks like a winter wonderland even though it is almost April. Yeah, looks untouched freshly Freshly dropped snowpack. Yeah, I bet all those people on the lift were excited. Yeah. They're like, aw, I'm gonna get out there and I'm gonna ride downhill. How often do you use the pano effect? I like it a lot but it's hard to look at them on my phone. I have to download them to a computer or something. Yes, it's very hard to look at on your phone, but I always like to use it in situations that like that where it's so clean, like a really nice clean panoramic shot. There's. Few things better. I agree. Well done, Aidan. Yeah, high-five. If you want to send in your phonetography, it's Tomorrow@CNET.com. Yeah. That's where you send it and make sure you tell us what device you took it on. Give us permission to use it on the show. Tell us a little story about why you took that particular photo because we love hearing about that stuff. Yeah, honestly we might start doing themes. We get so much phonetography we might have to set up some themes for them month. We could do a phonetographer collage of the day. Yeah it would be kind of fun or we would be like okay the theme this month is selfies. Show us your best selfie or whatever so Send- That's a- Actually, email us- That's a Pandora's Box you don't wanna open. [LAUGH] It really is. Send us your ideas for themes for phonetography. That'd be cool. Because I actually think we could- We gotta up everyone's game cause they're all so good. It's too good you're saying. They're all so good. Yeah. That is is for today's show. We'll be back tomorrow with a brand new docket of science facts meeting Science fiction come together like ET and Elliot. Phone home. Kids, ask your parents. That's right. Until then. Be good humans. See you guys next time. Bye. [MUSIC]
