3-D printers are an amazing technological breakthrough. It is hard to believe all the things that can be created (printed). What is most difficult to believe is that a car could be 3-D printed. Will it be safe? Will it possibly work? How can this be?

To research a 3-D car, Arizona State University and an Arizona-based technology company, Local Motors, are teaming up. Local Motors wants to create vehicles that are safer than any others on the road. They will be researching the strength of the 3-D parts. This could be a game-changer in the automotive marketplace.

The general public will need to be convinced that a 3-D car is strong and safe. It seems the regulatory agencies would need to be convinced of that too, as well as insurance agencies. It seems like an exciting project to undertake. The marketing campaign will be unique as well. At least consumers will be open to a technology company undertaking car manufacturing, since Apple and Google and others are jumping in as well. What would Henry Ford think? They might as well make a driverless 3-D printed car and apply all the technology that exists. Then maybe more of us would be interested.
