How 3D printing will literally make the future

3D Printers
When you think of 3D printing you probably think of this Star Trek chess set or this Doctor Who transformer or maybe even 3D printed pizza. Forget that low res noise over the last five years resolutions have come up and the printing has become so much more sophisticated. Like now you can print functional tools with moving parts. And get this There's now a 3D printer in space aboard the International Space Station. Which means if something breaks, those astronauts don't have to wait for a resupply shuttle that could take a month to arrive. They just print out a replacement right there There on the space station. Or check this out. A guy made a near perfect replica of a sixth century viking sword. Which means visitors to the national museum of art in Norway and can touch and feel it without damaging the very fragile original. 3D printing is well on the way to providing safer construction too. In China they're making mansions and apartment buildings And in Amsterdam their building a real working bridge. In medicine 3D printing can help build prosthetic hands for kids, bone graphs that fit perfectly into your sockets and delicate internal organs that can either replace your own broken parts, or that can help to train the surgeons figure out exactly how to operate before going in for the real deal. And look at all these happy animals. There's a change to all this in less than 5 years. Yeah, it's pretty impressive, I guess. But I'm holding my horses until the European Space Agency gets around to 3-D printing it's base on the moon. Yes, that's a real thing. That's really happening. I'm telling you 3D printing is already making the world around you literally and I can't wait to see what happens next. [MUSIC]
