Portal’s GLaDOS (Genetic Lifeform and Disk Operating System) has been turned into a robotic ceiling lamp, thanks to some clever 3D-printing techniques. Not only do you need a special 3D printer, but also 40-hours to actually print a replica of the artificially superintelligent computer system.

NASA aims to land American astronauts back on the Moon by 2024, including the first woman, through the agency’s Artemis lunar exploration program. During future missions, astronauts may stay in a 3D-printed Moon village of sorts, with everything they need, and more.
Never heard of the Czinger 21C? If so, then it’s probably because the concept was supposed to debut at the cancelled Geneva Motor Show in 2020. Today, the Los Angeles-based company unveiled the production version of their 3D-printed hypercar, which was designed using an in-house Human-AI production system.
Israel-based Aleph Farms and its research partner at the Faculty of Biomedical Engineering at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology have created the world’s first 3D-printed rib eye steak. The team used a special three-dimensional (3D) bioprinting technology and natural building blocks of meat, which are essentially real cow cells, without genetic engineering and immortalization. This 3D bioprinting technology actually prints living cells that are then incubated to grow, differentiate, and interact, in order to acquire the texture and qualities of a real meat.
Tokyo-based company Kamenya Omoto specializes in masks, and their latest offering is quite creepy to say the least. The store is offering to pay $340 USD to the rights to your face. Should you accept, they’ll use it to 3D print a hyper-realistic mask, which will then be sold for $940 USD. If customers frequently purchase your mask, the store will then offer to pay a percentage of the sales. The project is officially called “That Face” and has already proven to be a hit.
