3d printing is SOOO 2012.

Some of you may recall a post I did over a year ago about 3d printing.
(For those that missed it and don't want to go to the link, 3d printing is way of printing an object, like a wrench, or motorcycle, that is fully functional.
Seriously.
The link to the former post has a video that will show you that actually happening.)

It was such shocking idea at the time.
Well, saddle up for a new shock:
Technology has marched on.
Now there is 4d printing.
What does that mean?
It means the object prints up, and then assembles itself.
Oh.my.stars.

Check it out HERE.
And HERE.

Yikes!

This overly instant technology happening each and every day just boggles my brain. Thinking about it overwhelms me and I can't keep up. It's like a race I can't finish. In another way, it's absolutely amazing!
