3D PRINTING MEETS THE FAX MACHINE

The three-d printing story is moving so fast it's becoming more and more difficult to keep up with. Regular readers here will already be familiar with my personal opinion that the 3 D printer represents the following things:

  1. a technology most probably originating in the black projects world and only now being strongly promoted by the power elites;
  2. the reason for this promotion is an attempt to retrench a decentralized manufacturing base back into North America;
  3. that this retrenchment is paralleled by the quiet though definite withdrawal of western capital from the developing world, for a possible expansion of investments in the USA, Canada, and Mexico in an effort to shore up the Anglosphere's power base;
  4. that all this has something to do with space, and the expansion of space capabilities, as evidenced in recent tests of 3d printing methods for the manufacture of space components, and announced plans for a large scale space-based manufacturing capability;

and finally, and for our purposes here, most importantly:

5. that 3d printing represents one necessary step in the technology tree toward a "Star Trek" like transporter system.

I have pointed out in previous blogs that yet another necessary step in this system, if we are ever to attain to a Star Trek-like transporter system, is the ability to use 3d printers to print organic materials, and there are already even "bio-printing" conferences (See Infocast Set to Host Inaugural BIO-PRINTING Summit in Alanta, GA, on November 13-14, 2013, and my thanks to Ms P.H. for bringing this to my attention). Additionally, 3D printers must be able to print utilizing not just plastics, but a variety of materials(See TTP invents multi-material print head, again, my thanks to Ms. P.H. from sharing this article).

But the other step to a practical "transporter" or teleporter, is the ability to three-d print at a distance. To send information from one point, and have a machine with the requisite materials at another point assemble it. Sort of a 3-d FAX machine.

No sooner said, than done:

Zeus is Not Just a God. He’s a 3D Printing Fax Machine.

No joke... you might now complain of getting junk FAXES, but soon, that FAX machine may literally be printing junk.  But it's another small step in a technology tree that is leading, when all the steps are combined, to big things: imagine scanning something here (and, the scanners already exist folks), sending it there, and printing it there. Already the benefits are huge, for transportation costs are eliminated.... consider what this means folks: this capability exists now.... 3d printing is saying that, at least for some things now, gas or fuel costs are "not an issue"... and, if one really stops and thinks about it, that gas and fuel in such a context is not an issue. Electronic communications is.

Now recall that article I just blogged, about the wireless 100 gigabit/second capability that DARPA is developing in conjunction with Raytheon, and look at it, not from the point of view of space defense systems, but from the point of view of 3D manufacturing. My point is that that 100gigabit/second capability is also about laying the foundation for a literal revolution not only in manufacturing but in transportation. Transportation is going to become increasingly to mean teleportation. 

Is this genuine teleportation in the Star Trek sense?

No it isn't. Information is being sent from one place, to be combined with materials that exist in another place. In the Star Trek world, the material itself as well as the information is sent.  But if you've been following the quantum computing and entanglement stories lately, they've been working on that too.

The desktop computer was a plaything, an expensive curiosity in the 1980s. Now, it has enabled an information and publishing revolution that few of us can imagine, who lived through the revolution, of living without. Now, take the rudimentary capabilities of 3d printing now - breathtaking as they are - and project them to the future two decades from now. Trucking companies will still be around, moving materials from here to there... but they will not be moving so many finished goods so far. Same with railroads. But costs of transporting certain things will be no more than a long distance phone call...

...thanks to a three-d printing-FAX machine appropriately enough called "Zeus."

See you on the flip side.

  1. A technology that would create portals to go from one place to another would be safer than a teleportation system that breaks down your molecules and reassemble somewhere else.

  2. The engine driving 3-D printing, via wireless and fiber optic 100GB (for now) throughput networks (ESnet5), are the Adiabatic Quantum Computers. These, at least publicly, are slated to achieve a certain state of A.I., in 2014. With sentient (Hello…”Data”?) status, in 2015.

    Like the network, the printer is but an arm, or a leg of the beast itself.

    Albeit, a very useful appendage none the less.

    Thank you Dr. Farrell for all the research and high octane speculations presented here.

    ps. regarding dumping transportation stocks (a shell game anyway), look to the manufacturing and transportation and storage of the “inks”/materials to be used
    in 3-D printing.

    The profits today, lay not in the printers themselves, but within the vast markup/margins of the inks themselves. The machines could be given away.

    Like the shopkeepers that supplied the miners in the gold rush days (California/Alaska), they were the ones to strike it rich.

    Oh, and lest we forget transportation….so too the railroad barons of this country.

    Gold built the U.S.A.!

  3. “This is a convenient technology for the Japanese and German war machines here on Earth”
    Right, the Tibetan flag or “Snow lion flag” used by “free Tibet” movement was designed with the help of a Japanese priest which reflects the design motif of Japanese military’s Rising Sun Flag.
    The Imperial Japanese tried to present themselves to the Lamaist “Mongol Border Land”,an autonomous area in Inner Mongolia, existing as a puppet state of the Japanese Empire, as “Shambala”, i.e. the protector of Dharma.
    And their WW2 ally Nazi Germany just happen to send expeditions to Tibet where “Shambala” is supposedly located, what a coincidence that in Esoteric Nazism, Hitler is also glorified as the Avatar of Vishnu.
    What really happened after WW2 was these two became intricate part of the “breakaway civilization”.
    The Japanese are part of David Rockefeller’s Trilateral Commission.
    They are part of the fictional organization called SPECTRE in James Bond universe. The logo of SPECTRE is an “evil-looking” octopus with its tentacles shaped like “Reichsadler”, and with a head that resembles that of “grey alien”, Isn’t It weird that the Nordic god Thor is introduced as Grey alien in “Stargate”, and the “civilizing gods” in “Kingdom of Crystal Skull” also look like the Greys?
    Let’s not forget about Umbrella Corporation from “Resident Evil” where they have Japanese version of “Plum Island” facility under Tokyo, and Plum Island was started under the auspices of Nazi scientist Eric Traub.
    So if these two nations gain independence from the anglosphere, it’ll be a major sign the Satanists are no longer able to turn billions of people into “zombies” or chimerical monsters. The Hopi tradition got it right by saying “third world war will be a spiritual war”, people are awakening.
    “Demons” pretending to be “God” is the classic Yahwist trickery. Little wonder, you have Jewish, German and Japanese version of “the chosen people”, and they all just happen to be part of the wonderful club called “breakaway civilization”.

  4. In 2003 I emailed a 3D file to someone with a rapid prototyping machine. He printed out the part after converting the file into an STL file.

    Just saying not news.

    And no desktop computers were not curiosities in the 1980s. Everyone I knew understood that these were a big deal and would be more capable in the future. The internet was a curiosity and no one really foresaw the world wide web.

  5. The oracle of South Dakota has spoken. Dump your UPS stocks.

    This is a convenient technology for the Japanese and German war machines here on Earth… in case they get any ideas about independence from the anglosphere.

    It might even be useful one day for those among us who like to conjure up demons but are tired of the tedious and gruesome rituals prescribed in their ancient books. 3D manufactured demons? And speaking of Zeus, how about those deities believed to be imprisoned in crystals? Will we be able to transport them out when we figure out how to build the source material that they are made from?

    1. Who comes from Saturn?

      And well data rate per second isn’t the hard part. It’s sorting it all.

      Anyhow faster than light communication systems already likely exist, though unlikely that the NSA would publically acknowledge such. Just like no one is going to acknowledge having a cold running quantum computer able to sort all the data points.
