The 2015 McLaren 650S Coupe ($320,000) takes its name from the 650 metric horses its 3.8-liter twin-turbo V-8 is able to produce. But thats not all its got up its sleeve. The 650S has improved downforce, turning, and agility over McLaren's older 12C, while you still get their signature butterfly doors, and well styled interior. No performance figures have been released so we'll just have to see how much it improves over the 12C's 2.9 second 0-60mph time. The coupe and the convertible versions of the 650S will be making their debuts at next months Geneva Auto Show.

As part of a research project a Amsterdam student team for TU Delft has developed a fully functional 3D printed stainless steel Bicycle called Arc Bicycle ($NFS). The design was a proof concept to show what could be done with the MX3D method of printing metal.The method used called WAAM (Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing) and is based on MIG welding techniques combined with robotic arms which are used for the 3D printers.When I think of 3D printing, the picture of an enclosed box always came to mind. Even when there was talk of using the technology to build homes, its always been the same image that came to mind just on a larger scale.The realization that 3D printing can be accomplished with any tool that can be programmed to follow a specific pattern is eye opening.The golden egg for me has always been the application of 3D printing to textiles, and this revelation makes that reality seem all more feasible.
