If waves of cheap rhino horns 3D-printed with real rhino DNA are flooded onto the Asian markets, is this a form of rhino conservation or capitalistic exploitation? This critical question is gnawing at the root of a controversial business venture to use real rhino DNA in the commercial production of 3D-printed rhino horns. In a

Regular readers of PS are aware that we have covered many news items of late involving the remarkably versatile technology known as 3D printing/rapid prototyping in which 3D computer design software, laser printing and materials science combine to create real (3 dimensional) objects or materials. This tech has been used to “print” various useful items:
In 2013, we’re all aware of the environmental dangers that the planet is currently facing. The trouble, however, is that not enough is currently being done about it. Thankfully, there are small, relatively new inventions that are already on the market that, if bought by everyone, could help the planet in a big way as
3D printing technology is finding some remarkable applications these days; more than just a clever way to make personalized furniture or dishware, 3D printing (using rapid prototyping software) has of late expanded into biomedicine and anti-cancer drug manufacturing. But now, this rapid 3D printing technology — which relies on design software-controlled lasers — is poise
