How incredible would it be to imagine a thing and have it magically appear in concrete form? After food, organs and virtuality, here comes the thought printer! Thinkerthing, a start-up based in Chile, developed a method of printing 3D objects just by thinking about them. The first project is the Monster Dreamer, a technology that allows grown-ups and children to make their own game by designing 3D models of fantasy creatures, using their inner creativity and printing them out as real objects. “It is really something magical to be there, sat without moving a limb and watching the designs evolve into something that you were thinking about” says George Laskowsky, Chief Technical Officer of the company. This “neuroscientific design” could be the start of a new, extraordinary way of creating and producing objects. Find more at BBC
