For hundreds of years, the Swiss Guard have worn a distinctive, brightly-colored dress uniform while protecting the Pope and Vatican City, with only a couple of minor changes over the years. This... year, they're making a big change: the traditional, metal helmet -- called a morion -- is being replaced with ones that are 3D printed. The uniforms and equipment of the Swiss Guard are imbued with tradition. The modern uniform was introduced in 1914, inspired by Renaissance-era artwork featuring the soldiers. Over the years, the Vatican has retained the traditional elements of the uniform, employing blacksmiths to provide replacement parts for their armor. Last year, the Swiss Guard announced that it would replace the iconic helmet with one made...

This light-powered 3D printer3D printing has changed the way people approach hardware design, but most printers share a basic limitation: they essentially build objects layer by layer, generally from the bottom up. This new... system from Berkeley, however, builds them all at once more or less by projecting a video through a jar of light-sensitive resin.

3D Printed Head Fools AndroidForbes recently challenged a variety of smartphone face-recognition systems with a 3d printed head modeled after the author's head. The head was printed at Backface in Birmingham, U.K., where I was... ushered into a dome-like studio containing 50 cameras. Together, they combine to take a single shot that makes up a full 3D image. The final model took a few days to generate at the cost of just over £300. With it, the author tested it out against four Android smartphones and the iPhone X. All Android phones tested were able to be unlocked with the fake 3d printed head. If you're an Android customer, though, look away from your screen now. We tested four of the hottest handsets running Google's operating systems and Apple's iPhone to see how easy it'd be to break into them. We did it with a...

Despite a mass shooting and aThis chronology of events certainly captures modern America pretty well: On Sunday, a mass shooting and tragic loss of life. The next day, a judge's order bars a Texas firm from putting blueprints for... making untraceable 3D-printed guns online. The day after that, the founder of that company says ok, fine. Instead of putting them online en masse, I'll just sell them, to one buyer at a time. Problem solved. It's all there, encapsulated in that sequence of events. A fascination with guns. An ability of the current legal and political system to put any meaningful new limits on the spread of guns. And a pro-gun activist using technology to put untraceable firearms, which you don't need a background check for, since after all you're just printing these, into more peoples' hands than might...

Color effects from transparentMost of the objects we see are colored by pigments, but using pigments has disadvantages: such colors can fade, industrial pigments are often toxic, and certain color effects are impossible to... achieve. The natural world, however, also exhibits structural coloration, where the microstructure of an object causes various colors to appear. Peacock feathers, for instance, are pigmented brown, but--because of long hollows within the feathers--reflect the gorgeous, iridescent blues and greens we see and admire. Recent advances in technology have made it practical to fabricate the kind of nanostructures that result in structural coloration, and computer scientists from the Institute of Science and Technology Austria (IST Austria) and the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST)...

Everything you need to knowOn Tuesday, President Donald Trump took to Twitter as he does every morning. In between his usual tweets about “fake news” and “no Russian collusion,” he posted something out of the ordinary... for him: a note about "3-D plastic guns." I am looking into 3-D Plastic Guns being sold to the public. Already spoke to NRA, doesn’t seem to make much sense! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 31, 2018 What the president is talking about are firearms manufactured by 3-D printers, the kind someone might buy for their home and literally print themselves a gun.  The first thing you should know: It’s not illegal to make your own gun. Gun enthusiasts have been legally manufacturing their own pistols, handguns, rifles, and other firearms for centuries — there's not even a requirement...
