3D scanner replicates objects
The future once again is upon us. A 3D copy machine invented by the Z Corporation can replicate an object, even an object with moving parts. This video shows a tool, a wrench, being scanned and sent to a 3D printer. Color is added. The image then is sent to the printer. The printer does have a color ink cartridge, but it also has a powder (with a secret formula) which combines with a binding material. An hour and a half later a new wrench is born in the powdery tray. Excess powder is blown off, and the new wrench can be put immediate use.
Scan an object And take out a replica.
In the video they speak about using this 3D contraption in space. Imagine this:
You're an astronaut. You let go of your wrench for just a second, and it disappears. Oh, no! You need that wrench! There is no hardware store anywhere in the vicinity. What is the solution? Easy! You reproduce it with your 3D copy machine.
I have 2 questions for the inventers and the engineers out there is cyber space:
-Where did the wrench go? Has it joined the outer-atmospheric garbage dump?
-Isn't that powder going to be floating around the space station forever?
Watch the video. You won't believe it either!
