This is pretty fantastic. The technology and output isn’t 100% perfect, but that’s ok. The concept and execution are nearly there and I wouldn’t be surprised if in a couple of years people start making their own bikes in this way, layer by layer, and fully functional.
This is a long video (18 minutes long), but it’s incredibly fascinating to watch this guy turn a piece of otherwise junk metal into a super-sharp razor. If you want to buy one of these beautiful works of art, you can do so here.
