The Internet - The first Worldwide Tool of Unification ("The End of History")

" ... Now I give you something that few think about: What do you think the Internet is all about, historically? Citizens of all the countries on Earth can talk to one another without electronic borders. The young people of those nations can all see each other, talk to each other, and express opinions. No matter what the country does to suppress it, they're doing it anyway. They are putting together a network of consciousness, of oneness, a multicultural consciousness. It's here to stay. It's part of the new energy. The young people know it and are leading the way.... "

" ... I gave you a prophecy more than 10 years ago. I told you there would come a day when everyone could talk to everyone and, therefore, there could be no conspiracy. For conspiracy depends on separation and secrecy - something hiding in the dark that only a few know about. Seen the news lately? What is happening? Could it be that there is a new paradigm happening that seems to go against history?... " Read More …. "The End of History"- Nov 20, 2010 (Kryon channelled by Lee Carroll)

Have you seen innovation and invention in the past decade that required thinking out of the box of an old reality? Indeed, you have. I can't tell you what's coming, because you haven't thought of it yet! But the potentials of it are looming large. Let me give you an example, Let us say that 20 years ago, you predicted that there would be something called the Internet on a device you don't really have yet using technology that you can't imagine. You will have full libraries, buildings filled with books, in your hand - a worldwide encyclopedia of everything knowable, with the ability to look it up instantly! Not only that, but that look-up service isn't going to cost a penny! You can call friends and see them on a video screen, and it won't cost a penny! No matter how long you use this service and to what depth you use it, the service itself will be free.

Now, anyone listening to you back then would perhaps have said, "Even if we can believe the technological part, which we think is impossible, everything costs something. There has to be a charge for it! Otherwise, how would they stay in business?" The answer is this: With new invention comes new paradigms of business. You don't know what you don't know, so don't decide in advance what you think is coming based on an old energy world. ..."

Czech electronics student takes lead with #3Dsimo - Europe's first 3D pen

Deutsche Welle, 7 November 2013

3D printing has had loads of media attention, with advances in the technology producing ambitious - even lethal - things. But 3D pens have a way to go. And the first may yet come from Europe.

We've all marveled at the things 3D printers can make. We've even been shocked - with some calling for controls on what you can and cannot make after a Texan man 3D printed a handgun. It's as if we cannot escape a future that has already arrived.

But one area of the 3D printing revolution is still very much in its infancy - 3D pens.

That's pens that "write" on a surface or even in the air using molten plastic instead of ink.

Those of us who spent hours as children gluing together plastic model airplanes or racing cars - getting more glue on our fingers than on the models - will be happy to know there is an alternative.

Why not just draw your model in the air?

"If you want to have some fun, if you want to draw a model for fun, for pleasure, then that's what the 3Dsimo is all about," says David Paskevic, a young Czech electronics student who's developed the first 3D pen to be designed in Europe.

"The only limit is your imagination," he told DW.

become a first for Europe

So the sky's the limit - and some amount of artistic skill and talent, as this reporter soon found out.

Attempts to "draw" a frog in green plastic were less than impressive, but let's just put that down to experience.

It's called 3Dsimo, and it's only the third 3D pen ever to have been developed.

So how does it work?

The size and weight of a small hand-held fan, 3Dsimo draws in what look like thin pieces of raw, brightly-colored spaghetti. It melts them into a liquid "ink" that dries upon contact with the air. So you can draw plastic models - most easily on a flat surface, but also in the air.

An industry in its infancy

David Paskevic says at present there are three 3D pens in existence.

The world's first - 3Doodler - created by US developers in Boston, a Chinese-made spin-off, and now his 3Dsimo, which he claims is the most versatile 3D pen yet.

"The big advantage of our pen is that it writes in the air with both bioplastics such as PLA (polylactic acid) and thermoplastics such as ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene), and indeed any other plastic material."

"The other 3D pens being developed can only handle ABS plastics," says Paskevic, "because they work at a fixed temperature and at a fixed speed. With our pen you can set the temperature anywhere from 0 to 260 degrees Celsius, and that's important because each plastic has a different melting point."

The pens are barely commercially available, so new is the technology.

The American 3Doodler is being sold via the main crowdfunding site Kickstarter, while the 3Dsimo is available via the smaller site, Indiegogo.

In each case there's a four month waiting period for the pens to arrive, so they won't quite be in the shops for Christmas.

Both pens have sparked a hum of media interest, however, so intriguing is their potential.

In a gleaming white room at Prague's high-tech National Technical Library, Paskevic unwraps a number of models kept in a very low-tech shoe box - a pair of glasses, a little tree, a dinosaur, a poppy, a monoplane, a copy of the Eiffel Tower and the piece de resistance - this reporter's portrait with the DW logo.

All of them, he says, were hand "drawn."

Not protected by patent

Perhaps one of the most interesting aspects to this story is that the 3Dsimo is not protected by patent - as patenting an industrial design involves freezing all development and promotion activity for seven months while the patent can be registered.

In the fast-moving world of 3D printing, Paskevic says, a wait like that could be fatal.

"3D printing is developing incredibly fast. Each month you wait can cost you your idea," says Paskevic.

David Paskevic says waiting for a patent in Europe can kill your design

"If we had to wait another seven months, it's possible another product would appear on the market that would resemble this one. And then it would be impossible to get this one into the shops."

More pens could appear in the future, so embryonic is the technology.

At present they are very much toys for budding artists and children.

But in the future, as the "ink" is stabilized and the technology improved, it's not hard to imagine designers "drawing" a new car in front of company bosses, or an architect "drawing" the outlines of a new house.

The future, it seems, is plastic. And fantastic.
