Hi Octo. I need to do a food shop tonight, so the sky's the limit. Why am I in the mood for lobster?

Yes, white wine, lobster or salmon steak (?) then maybe I'll go haywire.

I think I'll buy a nice semi-dry Riesling from one of the vineyards of the Niagara Region here.

Yeah but I can't imagine having a 3d doodle pen. I don't like flimsy plastic crap as it is so I don't plan on make some more of it. 13.gif

I wonder if they will come up with a device that can use other materials, such as heat/sealing hemp...along those lines.

I hope so, but I still don't want a pen. I want a really big 3d printer that can print big and useful things. hyper.gif

I agree, that would be something we could all use in the home and it would be something like Star Trek's replicator technology.

Quote:I’m excited to see technology developing that will allow various types of used plastics to be recycled for use in 3D printers. One type uses old milk containers. Hopefully it won’t be long before a printer for bio-plastics will be available. That’s plastic made out of organic materials like hemp, soy, apricot stones or nut shells.

Here's an interesting development in the bio-plastics sector.

Or we could print a small planet out of shiny gold and precious stones, put all greedy people and politicians on it, send it into outer space and live happily ever after here on this one.

Or 3D print everyone a house, furniture, clothes and other necessities and wants and hopefully, in the future...nutritious food - then we will have no need for TPTB.

Build a house for under $5,000.

All those things and more can be made out of hemp.

Quote:Using hemp as a building material is not new. Hemcrete is a registered brand of hempcrete, a material has been an alternative building material used in Europe and Australia since the 1960's. The use of hemp in buildings dates back millennia in Asia and the Middle East where the Cannabis plant originates from. The biggest challenges of using hemp as a building material in the U.S are regulation, supply and cost, all of which are related.

David Mosrie of Push Design explains: “The main negative effect of the legal situation [in the U.S] is the cost to import it, which is frankly very high. Even while [the government] is legalizing medical marijuana now in 19 states, [they] can't seem to allow industrial hemp production. Local production would not only lower the environmental impact exponentially versus bringing it from Europe, but would bolster a struggling economic group and prop up local farming, a long regional tradition. It frankly makes no sense to keep up the ban , at the state or federal level, but it continues on.”
