3D Printed Casts




The uses for 3D printers is, of course, limited only by our imagination. The image below, of a patient specific cast, is only the latest innovation in the arena. Use of 3D printers in the medical field is set to explode and we need to see more intelligent / innovative uses of this technology in medicine to reduce costs.

Read the whole article and think about how the use of 3D printers might facilitate certain construction work. Simple hangers, brackets and tile spacers leap to mind as easily printed objects that might be produced, as needed, on site as work progresses.

The costs may be prohibitive today, but the last case I paid for was fiberglass and the one before that was fashioned from plaster. Progress will be made regardless of how slowly we in construction move.

Oil Shale in the Green River Formation




The microwave technologies described in the article linked below tie directly to the previous Energy Economy post and highlight the vastness of the oil and gas resources to which the US enjoys access.

The oil and gas remaining in the Permian Basin, the Eagle Ford Shale, the Barnett Shale, (all in Texas) the Marcellus Shale, (in NY, PA, WV and Ohio) the Bakken Shale (North and South Dakota) and the 4.2 trillion barrels of oil shale contained in the Green River Formation combine to guarantee the US energy independence for the next 200 years.

The image below - borrowed from the article linked below - buts the vastness of the oil shale in the Green River Formation in perspective.




In that time frame expect us to master solar, nuclear and fusion as energy sources.

Again, as argued below, let's leverage cheap energy and superior quality to give American workers JOBs in the new economy.
