The moon shines brightly and illuminates the black water of the ocean. Thick fog descends on it in ominous silence. Then, it’s suddenly broken by the creaking of wooden boards, followed by a rippling of the waves. Through the fog, you see the outline of an old large ship. Its hull is rusty, and a strange cold is coming from it... But the most unsettling thing is that there’s no one on the deck.

Is the 3D printing revolution here to stay, or is it merely a trend? Well, let’s think about this, shall we? Think of 3D printers as sandwiches. Mmmm! Instead of putting layers of food ingredients, put one layer of some substance over another. The printer knows what to do based on a computer-aided design. The 3D printing journey started in the late 1980s. Although different people and companies invested in 3D printing before Charles Hull, he is known as the first one to create a prototype and get the patent. It would have cost you around $300,000 to get a 3D printer back then. Today, you can get an advanced 3D printer for a substantially lower cost, around $1,800. I mean, there are even $49 3D printers available, so the scope is vast.

Rather, he wrote an empowering short story called “How the Mail Steamer Went Down in Mid-Atlantic by a Survivor” on March 3, 1886 — 26 years before Titanic sank.

Humans have tails. Okay, that sounds weird, I know. But it’s true. While our bodies are still forming in the womb, at around day 31 to 35, you can really start to see it. Right now, you have a tail! It’s inside you. It’s part of your coccyx, to be more precise. If you were to have an X-ray right now and asked the doctor to show you your tail, you’d see some small bony segments at the bottom of your spinel. We lost our tails over decades of evolution. Imagine if we still had our tails, they’d have to redesign pants. Maybe they’d have a special hole or even a tail pocket. Sitting might be a bit uncomfortable, too, to say the least.
