Amazon to use drones for fast delivery

With 3D Printers.....who needs Amazon anyway. The future is in the replicators  :lol:

I'm only interested in 3D printing when it can "print" a four course, gourmet dinner! :Applause:

The dones will carry a Gatling gun for protection from dogs, children, hillbillys and other ground threats and, an assortment of air to air missles in case a hawk decided to try to make a meal of it or an airliner gets in its way. lol

Copilot: Captain have you ever flown a 777 before?

Captain:Nope,but we got a strong tail wind and the bar in Hong Kong stays open till 5am, so lets kick the tires, light the fires and, get the hell outta here.

Speaking of 3D printing, I see where Jay Leno bought a printer to make parts for his collecton of old vintage automobiles. Since a fuel pumps or whatever are no longer made for a say a certain make for year 1911, rather than pay $1000 for one Jay prints one out using the old one for a model. And he's good to go down the road instead of grounded.

 

Er, this was a real news story by the way, not a joke for his show. :)

3D Printers for car parts are not really that new. They have been doing CAD/CAM Computer Numeric Control or CNC since the 1980's which is pretty much the same thing, only you are starting with a block of metal and working it down to a shape with machine heads that is running off a program. Back then CAD/CAM was very expensive and only big manufacturers could afford a CNC machine. Today the technology is getting better and better, price coming down so people like Jay Leno can have access to this type of technology for much less.

I heard President Obama called Jeff Bezos.  He offered a trade: some U.S. Government drones for his company to help fix the ACA website.

Well there's quite a lot of difference between milling down a block of metal and building up a part by sintering it together layer by layer. The needed computer control is indeed similar, but the rest of the technology is very different.

Yes, just like there is a difference between an Altair 8800 and my Intel I7 machine I have today.....you get the idea.  It is an evolution my friend.

 

The technology started somewhere and CNC would be the pioneer

I'm waiting for the pocket model printer.

Food, drink, and night's shelter for backpacking without a pack, just load pine cones in the hopper.

Beer and hotdogs at the race track in exchange for piles of losing tickets picked up off the floor.

New lamps for old, like Ali Baba!

Hollow chocolate F-16 anyone? With all switches and controls modeled accurately?
