Ever since Johannes Gutenberg invented the printing press around 1439, we have been obsessed with creating the perfect printer to preserve and put our ideas on paper. The printing press was probably one of the most innovative and life-changing inventions as it made literacy more accessible. No longer did people have to write and transcribe thousands of pages, one at a time. But instead, books like the Bible could be mass produced at a quick pace. Over the hundreds of years since Gutenberg’s invention, the printer has evolved into devices like the typewriter and the laser jet printer. But today, in the 21st century, the printer has taken a dramatic turn that will change our society just as much as Gutenberg’s printing press changed his society: the 3D printer. This isn’t science fiction, this is the real deal, and it’s coming to a home or business near you.
The 3D printer is a technological breakthrough that involves a computer communicating with the printer to create layers as it “prints” a 3D creation from the computer. Layer upon layer is laid down as the object comes to life. Stemming back to the 1980’s, the 3D printer has gone through many trials, tests, and breakthroughs, and they are now becoming available to the regular household market. Today, you can do more than make a 3D printing of that flower you designed on your computer. People have started to print functional guns, cars, and houses. All it takes is some patience and intricate design. This can be both good and a bad thing, especially since guns can now become available to nearly anyone who can print them at home.
In Japan, 3D printers have become available on the streets where people can have 48 cameras take a photo of them, and then create a little 3D figurine of themselves. It’s quite an interesting device and people can create 3D figures of celebrities, animals, objects, and more. 3D printing can even create food, and nursing homes are taking advantage of it because they can create softer foods that look like real food. The 3D printing world has also made a huge impact in the medical field, as custom prosthetics can be printed as well as other body parts like bones. This will be able to cut the cost of manufacturing prosthetics and can make body parts more accessible to the disabled. Speaking of the medical field, just like how food can be printed, doctors are also experimenting with the printing of medications. Pretty soon, you won’t need to stand in long lines at the pharmacy and you can print your medications instead.
Believe it or not, this is just the beginning of the 3D printing world, and it doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. Just like how the internet slowly crept into our lives, this amazing type of technology will likely be in every household in the next decade. It truly is looking like our lives will be something out of a science fiction film or comic.
