An average person in a developed country is expected to fracture their bones twice a lifetime. Often the fractured body part is wrapped in plaster to fixate it and help the bones to rejoin. In order to counter many of the unpleasant experiences combined with plaster casts a young designer (Jake Evill) has developed a 3D printed cast, which could soon be used alternatively to cure fractures.
After the “strati” by local motors was marketed as the first 3D printed car in 2014, divergent motors caught up the race by prototyping “Blade” the first 3D printed super car. With an acceleration of 0-60 in 2.2 seconds and 700 horse-powers the “Blade” is an honorable competitor to regular high end cars.
