Surely the 3D printing technology is developing several functionalities for all possible domains of the market. So far, architects and doctors alike are successfully enjoying the privileges that the high technology development brings. Whether it is a simpler way to visualize and present an architectural project or a really smart way of creating 3D printed replicas that simulate some complicated medical procedure meant to save lives, 3D technology is getting ahead of us all.
We now develop better ways to design and produce a simple custom made object, as to eliminate waste and tailor it to the needs of each individual consumer. We no longer visit real estate properties that seem interesting to us, but rather take a virtual tour that can give us the feeling that we are actually walking through the space.
In fact, the 3D technology is creating new means of entertainment for our delight, as the International Festival of Manchester is announcing. A spectacular installation that will use augmented reality and much more is getting ready to be presented to the public, in 2015. The entertaining side of 3D technology is something that has been lately left aside. In the pursuit to find new and serious applications for 3D technology, we might have forgotten that simple fun things can also be important, when put to good use.
The team at le FabShop is taking another road in developing the most amazing and creative implementation of 3D printing: free 3D printable toys. Their project is definitely the ultimate pursuit of advanced techniques for playing with your food. Their project is proudly presenting a collection of 14 components, that you can download yourself and print, in order to attach them to your favorite vegetable.
