This is the Urbee 2 (Google it  :emthup: :icon_mrgreen:), a car made out of parts created by a 3D printer. The developers hope to have it on the road by 2015, and will attempt to drive it across the country using just 10 gallons of gas. 



Agelbert NOTE: As long as the resin is a plant based plastic (hello HEMP!  :icon_mrgreen:), this process will save a lot of energy in manufacturing, transport to point of sale AND use of the vehicle due it's extremely low weight. And just as a whale is every bit as efficient as a dolphin, this shape can be put to use in large vehicles too! It's not just about some tiny runabout!   
Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life. Pr. 13:12
