Fools didn't even orient the Apple logo properly.

That's the way it's oriented on my Macbook.

Exactly. PowerBooks had the Apple oriented the other way. If they're going to go retro, they should go retro.
I could not find a PowerBook image which showed the upside-down Apple logo when opened, but here is one of the original iBooks:

Neat. Basically making his own kit car?

I hope he doesn't put that body on an old VW Beetle chassis.

I'd trust that more than a 3D printed chassis.

Yeah, that would be the lesser of two blasphemies.

Even then, the outside sheet metal isn't just cosmetics but part of the crumple zone safety cage design.
I've seen some farmers start printing a few parts but they were basically exact replacements for the same manufactured plastic part but that's quite a bit different.

I'd drive it.

Then again, I daily a nearly 30 year old car that lacks air bags, modern crumple zones, or any other nanny-state electronic driving aids, so... :shrug:

it's a mold ... presumably nothing in that photo will be hitting the road

it's a neat idea, with a bit of tweaking; imagine being able to re-create classic cars that cost a bajillion dollars and can't be driven anywhere

the real question is what's going under the hood, and where the chassis is coming from

The "You wouldn't download a car?" ad is stupid. You had better bet your ass I would download a car if I could. Even if it didn't last as long as a "store-bought" car, I could just print more replacement parts as necessary.

The only reason people don't download everything is because we can't yet download everything.

3D printers and the goo they make things out of... also costs money.

This is inside the liquid oxygen tank of SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket

I wonder why they would put a camera there? I mean, they can see if the rocket is working or not, and they have telemetry, but this is the first time I've seen the inside of a rocket's fuel tank while it's flying.

Video of the launch here:

Perhaps they might catch something that would help improve engine efficiency or perhaps not, but with small cameras now available, why not?

Well, yeah, it could be just a case of "because they can".

fluid dynamics have always been a huge part of liquid rocket engine design, and as far as i know this has never been done before ... who knows what useful tidbits it might reveal?
