Some of us are obsessed with Elon Must. Others, with NASA and intergalactic travel and finally some with 3D printing. Well thankfully, technology buffs can finally rejoice. Alas, the Falcon 9, 3D Printed Rocket Chandelier has arrived. In all honesty it doesn’t look that bad. Instead of firing off highly explosive rocket fuel, these thrusters instead emit beams of light.
The engineering behind the 3D printing in this instance is pretty trick. The thermoplastic (printing material) used in this instance is a mixture of polyphenylene sulfide (something we’re not ultra familiar with) combined with carbon fiber (something we love on cars) and the finished product is something that rings like a bell when struck. Perhaps Mozart would find interest in this as well. We dig the look, like the technology behind it, and feel it comes in reasonably priced at around $500.00 bucks. Photo © Andrew McCalip
