Weird Science Wasn’t That Weird With 3D Printing
3D printing changed the world. You’ve probably seen news reports of people getting prosthetic arms using a 3D printer. You can even go online, shop for a prosthetic arm, and have it shipped to your house. This technological advancement opened an entire world of possibilities. Someone didn’t only recently think of this billion-dollar idea. The 1985 film Weird Science printed a woman based on images they fed into a computer. This is exactly what 3D printing does, to put it simply. Those two guys in the movie were onto something. The movie makes it seem simple, but there’s a lot more to it than using an image and pressing a button. Nowadays, 3D printing is valued at $35.6 billion (Unlimited Tomorrow).
