Oct 30, 2015 | By Kira Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have proven that it is possible to 3D print touchably soft and silky hair, fibers, and bristles using a technique they are referring to as “furbrication.” The concept, which requires no special hardware or equipment other than an inexpensive FDM 3D printer, has been used to 3D print a troll with brushable hair, a model horses with braidable tails, and even stiffer bristles for a toothbrush.

Fact is, it doesn’t matter, but there is no arguing the point that un-manned aerial vehicles have become all the rage as of late. For those who...
