3D printing is cool — but not yet sexy

3D bikiniThe promise of perfectly personalized products manufactured by 3D printers is on the horizon, but this 3D-printed bikini – supposedly the “world’s first ready-to-wear, completely 3D-printed article of clothing” – looks surprisingly uncomfortable and badly fitted to me.

And believe me, I looked closely. I take seriously my responsibilities as a technology commentator.  And in that role, I think it’s safe to say that the future is already here but its coverage is skimpy.
