this shiz is cRaZy yo! (don’t taze me bro!)

phwhoar. have any of y’ulle out there heard of rapid prototyping? it’s got to be some of the most exciting technology on the planet right now. and i say this fully aware of the fact that the new MacBook Pros are out. Rapid Prototyping is a fancy way for saying “printing 3D objects”. as in, design a house, a car, a plane – anything (within a certain size, of course) – and this machine will “print” it in layers and ta-dah! your design is now real. in 3D. just like that. we have an example in the studio at the moment, that is why i’m all a fluster:

Man created man in the image of... man.

If you look closely, you can see parallel lines running down the bust. These are the layers in which it was ‘printed’ with plastic. This one was printed from the back of the head as the bottom, working up to the nose.

Rapid prototypes arent built with the ability to speak or feel emotion or interact in any way. Which means you have to reach out to them. Hopefully they will be printing fully functional feeling human beings in a few years.

we’ve been getting to know the technology for a campaign we’re working on. there are only 2 machines that do this in the country, and i think about as many people who know how to operate the technology. all i can think about is making stuff for my house. making shoes. making funny hats. you could make a new hat for every hour of the day. i mean, is this rad, or is this rad?

We discovered Livios loose resemblance to prototype dude. The only difference is in their noses. And now you noses.
