It seems as if there's no limit to the possibilities of 3-D printers. In 2013, an international controversy was ignited over the ethics of printing a gun. That same year, NASA began experimenting with printing a pizza to test the possibilities of creating food in space. In 2014, a printer was sent to the International Space Station where it successfully printed one of its own missing parts. It's the tech of the future.

The Latest and Greatest 3D Printing

These examples are sure to get you excited about the printing world!

Kickstarter Feature: Wireless Printing Solution

As we've become increasingly connected to mobile devices, we also expect our printers to do the same. Often times, however, the wireless settings on our printers are a bit confusing, or if you have an older printer, non-existent. This makes it difficult to print from your iPad, iPhone or laptop without installing a driver. Thanks to a new Kickstarter for printWiFi, any device will now be able to print documents with ease.
