Dick

.....and you thought 3-D printers were worthless!

They can make houses. Giant printers can make 10 houses per day.

Printers can make candy. They can make toys. Allegedly, they can even make a full-functioning liver or windpipe.

So why not a penis?

Why not, indeed!

Oh, before you all throw away your Cialis prescriptions, these don't seem to be fully functioning. It doesn't seem that they get erect with your mind, feel sensation or, you know, ejaculate.

It is more of 'penis as an art' kind of thing. And really, aren't they works of art?

...well some of them. Some are just downright ugly. I think we can all agree on that.

And actually it is an art project. A kinetic sculpture, if you will.  Depending on its mode, it can respond to the viewer's movements, or more interestingly (I think) to the stock market activity.

I guess, after 16:30, they sculpture goes flaccid, unless it starts to pull data over from the Nekkei Index.

I like that the artist's motivation was to 'study one of the oldest and probably the most attractive thing that humans interact with'.

I'm guessing that is a subjective statement.  Though I might not disagree.



Beautiful!

I don't remember them ever replicating dicks on any of the Star Trek series.
