How to Print a Car from a Printer (Yes a Real Car, Not a Toy)
Well now it is possible to print out an automobile. Yes, a real car, not a toy car. The car is called a Urbee, it really runs, and it is build to last 30 years. The engine is a hybrid which runs on both gasoline and batteries.
The large printer creates the car with numerous layers of composite material. The car was produced by Kor EcoLogic, based in Winnepeg, Canada. It can go up to 70 miles an hour and gets about 100 miles per gallon. With mass production, it is expected to sell for $50,000. But its not the environmentally conscious aspects of the car or the long futuristic shape of the car that generates interest, it is the fact that the car was printed.
