I always say there is so much to know and learn and this business sometimes speeds that learning process up. I have been getting up to speed with 3D printing and knew nothing of 4D printing.
Today on Sedo Buy3Dprinter.com sold for $12,000. Now what caught my eye later in the evening was that Afternic added more sales to the Jan 31 sales data, this happens often with sales added later under a previous date. So I did not see the sale of 4Dprinter.net, YES .net for $8,000 on Friday. I noticed it tonight. Added it to the daily sales recap.
4Dprinter.net was registered July of 2013 pretty nice ROI I would say. The .us was actually regged a month before in June of 2013.
I found a video on Ted.com by Skylar Tibbits explaining his work in the field, this is not a light read as they say, so you need to pay attention.
3D printing has grown in sophistication since the late 1970s; TED Fellow Skylar Tibbits is shaping the next development, which he calls 4D printing, where the fourth dimension is time. This emerging technology will allow us to print objects that then reshape themselves or self-assemble over time. Think: a printed cube that folds before your eyes, or a printed pipe able to sense the need to expand or contract.
