Google Doodle - Alessandro Volta

Alessandro Giuseppe Antonio Anastasio Volta (February 18, 1745 – March 5, 1827) was an Italian physicist credited with the invention of the first electrical battery, the Voltaic pile, invented in 1799.
Volta's invention sparked a great amount of scientific excitement and led others to conduct similar experiments which eventually led to the development of the field of electrochemistry.

Spectrom’s 3D Printing Color System

There’s often a desire to produce full color content, but the ability to do so is simply not present on personal 3D printing gear.
Spectrom hopes to change that with their filament coloring system. It’s based on primitive experiments in which folks would use a colored Sharpie pen to add some color to plain filament just as it entered the extruder. While these experiments were handheld manual affairs, the Spectrum device automates the entire process.

Car 3D-Printed and Assembled in Just 6 Days

Big Area Additive Manufacturing (BAAM) is an advanced set-up from Cincinnati Inc. co-created with Oak Ridge National Laboratory. 
The astonishing speed at which the car was created means 18 kg of material was accurately laid down every hour! 
The engine, wheels and windshield were among the few components that couldn’t be manufactured through 3D printing.
