How Many Researchers at the U.S. Army Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center in Massachusetts are exploring ways to 3D print clothing.
How many innovations stared with the military? I have always thought that 3D printing would be wonderful for people in 3rd world countries. Of course the printing process is currently still painfully slow, but the technology is taking off.
Why am I talking about it in my location based blog? Sorry, it’s just a technology I’m very excited about. I’m hoping that enhanced developments in things like 3D printed shoes with flexibility from multiple materials could be passed on into the open source community to help others.
If some of the waste that can be recovered from rubbish tips can be converted into 3D printing material by the use of Filabots, we could see some life changing good come from the rapid development that will be happening in DARPA or elsewhere.
