This guy’s work is really fascinating. Instead of milling or printing he is able to laser-cut thousands of cardboard panels using a special algo which are then easily stackable to create some of the most complex architectural columns ever made.
What’s more with the prototype he can get one of these ridged, cardboard columns for less than $1,500 and in less than 15 hours.
Do not trouble yourself much to get new things, whether clothes or friends…. Sell your clothes and keep your thoughts.

Think 3D Printing is cool?
Check out this 5-axis milling machine by Japanese company Daishin Seiki Corp. The semi-automated industrial robot completely sculpted a motorcycle helmet from one big block of aluminum in a few hours.
Craziest part? This video is over three years old…
Cities, especially coastal ones, are critical components of the global economy. Just the world’s 40 largest mega-regions—many of them located along coastline—account for roughly two-thirds of global economic output and nine in 10 of the world’s innovations.
This thing has potential. All the benefits of a motorcycle with some of the added protection of a car. A bit dorky now, but I can see automated versions of these things being the future of urban transport.

This song is freaking awesome.
Collectively, they carry $1 trillion in student loans. Only 62 percent of them have jobs, and only half of those work full-time. Median net worth among people under 35 has decreased by more than a third since 2005. Barely one-quarter of the men have bachelors’ degrees, despite all that college debt (many didn’t finish). More than one-third live at home with their parents—double the number from the previous generation.
People are limited by their physicality, their mortality and, in some cases, an unwillingness to make quarterly earnings their guiding principle. The corporate person as a globe-spanning abstraction, potentially immortal and amorally efficient, is by far the [better] symbol of our times.
