Something

Well, this is quite something!!

On Twitter I found this interesting experiment that someone has done in the Coda Apeldoorn. In the cultural center in Apeldoorn, Netherlands, there is this so called FabLab, where you can experiment with technology. Obviously last summer someone created a new rubber gasket for an Ericofon with a 3D printer. Cool!!

Three┬ánotes on the picture: the picture was taken from Twitter, the person on the picture is not me (!!) and the color of the gaskets is terrible ­čÖé

The gasket was printed in 3D with the use of PLA (PolyLactic Acid). This is not actually a plastic as you would suspect but a substance made of wheat, corn and sugarbeets. It is much more sustainable than ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) which is actually made out of oil. A very nice experiment!
