I have one I'll see you right now.  $300,000.

Don't worry if you can't see it, that's the point.

someone needs to break that writers tools

that was drivel
 
2013-05-08 10:30:58 PM
why not both?  Invisible plastic guns, that should make plenty of people shiat their pants.

If I put a 3D printer and a shredder in the same room, who'd win?

Shredder.

So I need an anti-invisibility sight printed for my printed gun.

I started with one 3d printer; now I have 25....

Pfft...this guy is a day late and a dollar short. They've had light-bending invisibility cloaks for hunters for years!

And then they'll print these:

But can they stop 3D printed bullets?????

Getting a little tired of this "omg metamaterials are invisibility cloaks" carp from duke. These are shiatty little microwave lenses. Most of this over hyped bs is coming out of duke too. Duke sucks.
The only interesting thing about this is the math method which is about 40 years old. They're not really doing anything at duke other than hyping the same old shiat over and over again.

Wouldn't it be good to be in your shoes, even if it was for just one day.

Urzhumov and his team recently produced a polymer plastic disk that was capable of deflecting microwave beams. He said he is confident that in the "not-so-distant future," they will be able to create an invisible cloak able to ward off higher wavelengths, like visible light.

Dear God, we may soon have the mirror!

Hello, I am Uday Hussein al-Tikriti. You mentioned a shredder?

Hoban Washburne: But can they stop 3D printed bullets?????


happy to be proved wrong, but I'm pretty sure it's un possible due to plastic going sideways rather than forwards when the powder ignites

That's what the rest of us were wondering, too.

I don't give a shiat about guns, printed or otherwise.

I guarantee it's only a matter of time before someone in Congress realizes that privately owned fabricators/3D printers are a threat to production monopolies and economic coercion. Then we'll start hearing about how important it is to ban this 'dangerous technology' except for approved government uses.

It's the next giant step in tech and it will be fought by everyone who has a vested interest in keeping a large number of people subservient.

Paranoid much? If Big Government wanted to do something like that, they'd already have banned all sorts of general-purpose tools. Like, say, stills.

It's not paranoia if they are actually out to get you. The wealthy and powerful wish to remain so, they do it by ensuring everyone else is poor and powerless (or at least, relatively so). As they become more affordable and capable, these printers will create a populace that has its own means of production; this weakens the grip of the state.

A still isn't general purpose. Try banning something like pliers or screwdrivers and see how successful you are. Even if government somehow got a chokehold on 3D printers, people are building their own  using parts from discarded consumer electronic devices like scanners. It's tough to control an idea whose time has come.
