Super Mario Bros. Möbius Strip

With a 3D printer, Joaquin Baldwin was able to make a Möbius strip showing the first level of Super Mario Bros. It doesn’t matter which castle the Princess is in. Mario will be trapped in an unending hell, forever moving forward but getting nowhere. Link -via Nerdcore

3d printing is such a new process that we are still discovering all the ways in which we can use it to enhance our lives. Well, the wait for the next big thing to print is over, because engineers from the UK have used the 3d printer to create an aircraft capable of flight. Made [...]
