The issue of crime has taken on a whole new air with the possibility of 3D guns being created on the spot by 3D printers. Police in Manchester made a raid in which they seized the tools and products of a firearm factory in the making. The whole aim of the operation was to accost the gangsters and criminals that had besieged the city with their violent behavior.
The police discovered a magazine and a trigger that could be employed to build a gun capable of killing people. A 3D printer was capable of issuing forth spurts of plastic which made the components of these firearms. Anyone could buy a 3D printer in the market and, with instructions downloaded from the Internet, manufacture a home-builtweapon. And the thin plastic material that got deposited in layers made detection by screening devices doubly difficult.
It was badnews since not much could be done to stop people from manufacturing firearms within the comfort of their homes. This new technology had made it easier for criminals and lowlife elements to create dangerous weapons on a massive scale. It could prove a giant menace in the times to come.
Earlier, the “Liberator” was the world’s firstplastic gun created from a 3D printer in the United States. The necessity of licensing was being considered regarding this potentially lethal invention.

Kendall Jenner, and the complicated life she leads with friends, fans and family, prove one thing. And that is that she knows how to hang in there amidst the media hype and mass publicity.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
