The emergence of “4D printing”


Imagine things can replicate by itself an appropriate design. In my opinion, we need 4D printing to make water pipes for snowing region.:)
MIT researcher Skylar Tibbits works on self-assembly — the idea that instead of building something (a chair, a skyscraper).
He is an artist and computational architect. Skylar Tibbits is working on “smart” components that can assemble themselves.
3D printing has grown in sophistication since the late 1970s; TED Fellow Skylar Tibbits is shaping the next development, which he calls 4D printing, where the fourth dimension is time.
This emerging technology will allow us to print objects that then reshape themselves or self-assemble over time.
Think a printed cube that folds before your eyes, or a printed pipe able to sense the need to expand or contract.

3D-printed toothbrush


Blizzident is making 3d printed toothbrush.

This toothbrush is 3D printed and material is soft and we can use this material it is safe according to Blizzident.

3d printed toothbrush cleans teeth in six seconds.
When using the Blizzident for the first couple of times, its a good idea to practice in front of a mirror.

By biting the brush using what dentists describe as a “sub gingival bass technique” technique, users clean the space underneath the gums as well as other hard-to-reach regions including the wisdom teeth.

According to Blizzident,Tooth brushing time is just 6 seconds. Conventional brushing and flossing takes 10 minutes per day Blizzident brushing and flossing takes just about one minute per day.

Thus you even save about 50 hours per year – more than a working week.

If we order from dentist, it will be more expensive around 400 US$.

Depends on  what city.

tailored Blizzident costs 99.- Euro / US$.

The one-time design/tailoring fee is 99.- Euro / US$.
A replacement costs just 49.- (in a pack of 3).
Family rebates are available.

The current delivery time is ca. 8 weeks.

Blizzident recommend replacing it with a new Blizzident toothbrush every 12 months (after they tailored a Blizzident to your teeth, replacement Blizzidents cost only a fraction of the price of a new one, and they can be sent to you automatically). 🙂
