This blog series has covered 3D printing from a few different angles. Admittedly, I do tend to prefer the less heavy pursuits, such as food or dinosaurs, but this week we’re going to cover a few medical 3D printing stories that have the power to change lives. This batch of stories includes facial implants, 3D printed vertebra and printed liver tissue. No one can live forever, but quality of life and how we confront aging and disease is about to change courtesy of the 3D printer.

Last week, we looked at the world of robot employment. From comedians and security guards to hitchhikers, we found that robots are taking on some non-traditional trades. After conducting a bit more research, it would appear that we’ve just begun to scratch the surface of emerging robot professions. This week’s “Recently in” takes a look at four robots breaking into the news broadcast, fishing, automotive repair and education industries.

Futurists, like Wired co-founder Kevin Kelly, work to provide a glimpse at the world of tomorrow. In a recent interview, Kelly stated that the technology to come over the next 20 years will make the previous 20 “pale in comparison.” This week’s “Recently in” looks at the latest innovations building the ground floor of Kelly’s future – a world where robots roam our offices, streets, football pitches and even our comedy clubs. I have a feeling that the future will look a lot like Futurama.

It’s easy to stand in awe gazing from the 163rd floor of the Burj Khalifa, atop the Hoover Dam or outside the Great Pyramid of Giza. The world’s largest man-made wonders are monuments to human ingenuity, perseverance and innovation. However, their grandeur should not detract from our more diminutive advancements.

Earlier this week, Google X, the Internet giant’s research arm, announced the latest step in Google’s self-driving car project: build about 100 prototype vehicles that resemble the Hitchhiker’s Guide’s Marvin the Paranoid Android (Freeze? I’m a car. I’m not a refrigerator) and begin early-stage testing this summer (they must have planned the announcement after last week’s concept car driven Recently in).

Customer visits are the most exciting part of my job as a SolidWorks employee. It truly is a great experience seeing our customers use our software to create products that they’re so passionate about. I also enjoy seeing the production line (which you don’t see in the software industry). Watching the hard work that goes into designing, developing, and constructing a product, then seeing them use our product to help them create their product is a great feeling.
