New 3D printer makes furniture, glass jars, food and more out of garbage

  1. Not really innovative.  It’s just an ordinary industrial shredder with a velocity greater than the speed of light.  Now as to how they got it to go that fast; that is something.

  2. Given the lack of safety features on this device, I’m sure there’s plenty of lost footage (npi) somewhere of it creating lots of arms and other body parts out of shredded human flesh.

    1. You can set it to create “dead hooker,” “hobo,” “homeless guy,” or “FBI informant.” Upgrades include “census taker,” “Jehova’s Witness,” and “ex-spouse.”

  3. I bet that thing can even make people like the 3d printer by the lake in the movie “Ograf”.

  4. Up next, the automobile that travels roadways saving downed bicyclists and pedestrians!

  5. This machine gives me the heeby geebies, I cringe everytime I watch it devour something. It’s no better watching it spit it back out…

  6. So what was with the tampons and stuff? Did they just think it would make a cool demo or something?

  7. I used to operate an industrial shredder that made that thing look like something from Ronco. 440 volts + a solid ton of meshing solid-steel rotary blades = Steel-belted radial truck tires, 4×4’s and over a million tons of confidential records a year – Wham-Bam-Thank-You-Ma’am Gone.

    Our favorite thing to feed it was an empty 5-gallon cooking oil container from the cafeteria. Sort of like a big plastic milk jug in a carboard shipping container. We would screw on the lid really tight and feed it into the crusher belt system which led to the blades. Intense compression until the edge of it hit the blade array and – BOOM ! Sounded like a mortar round going off, and gush of air would blast out of the shredder, reaching about fifteen feet, blowing bits of shredded paper out with it – A visible shock wave. Very entertaining.

  8. Does that mean the movie Fargo played backwards would spit out a Steve Buscemi out of a wood chipper?

  9. But the technology to reverse time hasn’t been invented yet. Nevermind. Just forget I said anything.
