1. 3D-Printed Horse Shoes are now a reality: Perfect. Lightweight. Purple.

    "In a horse-ome titanium 3D printing first, scientists have scanned a race horse’s hooves using a handheld scanner and then, with sophisticated modelling software they designed the perfect fitting, lightweight racing shoe. Did we mention they’re purple?

    Four of the customised kicks were printed within only a few hours!

    “3D printing a race horse shoe from titanium is a first for scientists and demonstrates the range of applications the technology can be used for, although it’s certainly very different from our everyday work,” said titanium expert, John Barnes.
