If you asked me how 3D printing worked, I wouldn't know where to begin, but what I do know is that it works and it's awesome. Tech brainiacs are currently developing 3D printing apps capable of doing all sorts of crazy cool stuff, and of course, that means breaking into cosplay attire. Because what gets cooler than super-nerds in superhero costumes?! Yep, that's right! Nothin'.
Fashionablygeek reports Stevie Dee of Crimson Coscrafts created an insanely realistic Batsuit with almost 100% of the parts coming from the 3D printing process. Dee worked with Tundra Designs and Gauntlet FX to create this cosplay based on the ‘Dark Knight’ skin from Batman: Arkham Origins.
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the future
If you aren't sure how 2015 is going to turn out, just know that there is already a machine that can make you a friggin' functional BATMAN SUIT.
Looking at all the individual parts is amazing
Once again, don't ask me how this works. Just know that somebody's career revolves around programming a machine to make these parts and that that person is incredibly smart and way more awesome than I will ever be.
That chest armor is sweet
This is some of the most impressive fan-art that I have ever seen. Even if this was made by something other than a 3D printer, I would be pretty impressed!
I see one spot that could use more uh... protection
Hopefully our boy, The Dark Knight, doesn't get hit by any stray bullets in the groin. Or take a swift kick to the old family jewels. Yikes!
Another shot - no, those jeans weren't 3d-printed
I'm not sure if 3D printers are capable of printing out jeans... yet. Give it time, guys.
This gets me thinking... if this is possible, why can't they 3D print burritos yet? Or pizza? I have a feeling that could be my golden ticket if I ever get that business idea off the ground.
