3D-Printed Gun Bought and Displayed By London Art Museum
I'm still not sure what makes 3D printed guns any different or more special than a gun produced with CAD plans and a used CNC machine.

Think of it like the script kiddie of gun making.

Belkin's President Apologizes For Faked Reviews

Tapping Trees for Electricity?
Call me a skeptic but they are claiming that right now they are only able to produce under 2 volts. How much under 2 volts?
