imaging you have a bad muscle situation, where a limb constantly wants to curl up. Now imagine you can set a control to exactly counter that bad muscles strength so now while wearing that, your limb works almost normally.

Here's a question.

Is the original volkswagen beetle still under copyright? That is, if I designed and built an electric car that looked a HELL of a lot like a 1940 volkswagen beetle. but it was all electric, and mostly 3d printed. could I get in trouble?

What if I only built one?

What if I published files so anyone could build one?

The main reason this is interesting (aside from a printed ceramic part that can handle rocket fire), is because before such 3d printing techniques, an engineer would come up with the desired part, and if the local machinist could not make it, he would then propose a bid for companies to manufacture it, who would each submit bids, and make the part by hand at considerable expense, often building specialized tools and facilities to do it.

So if you wanted a tiny precision part with a hundred holes with a very specific and uniform diameter , with a bend in the middle, and a catalyst chamber at the bottom of each hole, designed to pump caustic fluids in one end, and very hot jets out the other.. then in ten months, you'd get a guy who would tell you "yes we could do it, for this (large) amount, in four months". and at the end of all that, it turns out you need the holes just a little... more »

Now if only they brought back a decent, federated version of google wave, designed for gamers to run online games, pundits to discuss armchair philosophy, and to assist creative types in running collaborative projects. not to mention "check this out" posts like I tend to do.
