Meet The Best Halo Figure I've Ever Seen, And It Was Made By Magic

Well, it was made by a 3D printer, but I refuse to call them "machines". If you can put materials into something, press a button and out the other end comes entire things, that to me is magic. Dark magic.

This Halo figure is being shown off on the webpage of the Objet Connex500, a 3D printer, with the nonchelant caption that it's proof the device can "print up to 14 materials in one model".

I'm no advertising man, but "holy shit look at this would you?" seems more appropriate.

If you haven't ever had the pleasure of seeing this magic in action, know that a model doesn't just pop out looking like this. The printer has to churn out the pieces individually. So, basically every piece that's a different shade in this pic is a new piece.

Still. If magic has to say "some assembly required", then I still call it wonderful.

    All my printer ever does is jam and beep at me.

    Anyone interested in 3d printing should read Makers by Cory Doctrow - really great little near future SF novel

    Good news guys, in the future not only can we steal a car, we can download it off the internet too.
