(via Wired) Next Year’s 3-D Printers Promise Big Things — Really Big Things. MCOR 3-D printers use paper instead of plastic. Their machines glue sheets of 20 lb. bond paper together while a knife cuts the cross section for the 3-D model. The new MCOR Iris adds color printing to the specs, giving designers access to millions of colors via inkjet printheads!

Aside from one brief chant of “Allahu Akbar” (God is great), the incident elicited largely secular profanities, including blunt and colloquial entreaties for oral sex. Other cries were more plaintive: “What are you doing here? What is the point of all this?” Amid the chaos, someone, perhaps accidentally, turned the debate over foreignness and belonging on its head, yelling: “Go home! Do you understand English?”
