3D printing has gained a bit of fame recently as news of NASA’s plans for 3D-printed pizza, and doctor’s saving a baby’s life by 3D-printing a tracheal implant have made the news.  I guess seeing the darker side of 3D printing evolve along side the light was inevitable.  Behold, the US Navy’s plan to turn aircraft carriers into 3D-printed war machine factories!

I guess there’s not much to say here, it sort of speaks for itself.  I’ll only add that there has to come a point where waging war looks more like a game for the powerful and deluded to play than it does real life.  Some wonder if modern video games will turn future generations into senseless killers devoid of empathy.  I don’t think we can blame video games for this one…
