You’ve probably heard a fair share about 3D printing over the past few years. And it looks like (surprise, surprise!) Amazon is getting in on the new dimension of fun. One question remains: What do you want the tech giant’s partners to print for you? (Hint: The correct answer is a customized bobble head of yourself.)

The dawn of ‘wet computing’
We at OWC certainly know a thing or two about storage solutions. But storage in a solution? That’s new even to us. Essentially, scientists have found a way to store data in microscopic particles in a liquid. And naturally, the next step should be to put that liquid in our brains… Actually, this one gets a bit technical. You’ll want to check out the article for more details.

Bouncing microwaves are the future!
Naturally, even a remote possibility of a faster form of space travel is going to pique our interest ­– we are “Other World Computing”, after all. But this new testing of powering an object with no traditional fuels, only microwaves, is particularly exciting. Check out the full article at The Verge, and then start making your travel plans!
