    Researchers Use A Fiery Robot To 3D Print Glass

    Glass printing is, as you can imagine, a pretty heady process. It requires a lot of heat and a lot of luck and a general acceptance that your print will look awful simply because the glass will cool unevenly.

    Maybe you haven’t been following the watch press that closely this afternoon — who can blame you with all the news coming out of the Lohan camp regarding her quest for sobriety. However, Bell&Ross just launched a ceramic version of their huge and beautiful BR 03 Instrument Series. I’d say this one is for the ladies or for men who wear furs, but that’s just one… Read More
