Technology evolves at a rapid pace. Certainly no one in 1996 would have predicted that today most people use the internet through a touch screen phone that can fit in your pocket. As new technology is introduced, it will alter people’s lives in new and exciting ways. Here are some of the technological innovations that may end up changing the modern world.
Previously, people only thought of printing as a 2D process in which text and images were placed onto paper, fabric or some other flat surface. Thanks to highly advanced 3D modeling computer programs and printer hardware that uses plastic filaments as opposed to ink, a person can use a consumer 3D printer to create a plastic object of nearly any shape. However, the possibilities for 3D printing do not end there. The technology can be used to create shapes in metal, ceramic and many other materials as well. There is even testing being performed to find a way to use 3D printing to create replacement body parts for people.
