Self-Publishing: It’s not just for books anymore

Two articles that got my attention today, regarding 3D printers and what you might call the future of self-publishing:

1) Guns –  an enterprising 24-year-old gun enthusiast manufactured his own high-capacity 30-round gun magazine using a 3D printer.

2) Drugs – a TED Talk wherein “Chemist Lee Cronin is working on a 3D printer that, instead of objects, is able to print molecules. An exciting potential long-term application: printing your own medicine using chemical inks.

“Grow your own” is not just about pot anymore. It’s a brave new world, indeed.
