Singapore students print 1st 3D Concept Car in Asia

When you think of printers, you probably think of the big, heavy boxes on or under your desks. For quite a while now there have been 3D printers capable of printing any 3D object you can dream up in CAD, for example. The new technology has come a long way from its infancy only a few years ago. These days you can print everything from replicar dinosaur bones, to a Stradivarius imitation, to ultra-light bicycles, and now even whole cars. Students from the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore have succeeded to print an entire urban solar electric car.

ZTE shakes up its brand with new logo design

ZTE shakes up its brand with new logo design

If something isn't broken, don't fix it. Or thusly the saying goes. That doesn't mean one would be ill advised to refine whatever has already proven long effective, and that seems to be the mindset behind ZTE's recent decision to change it logo. The new version is hardly different than the previous version -- it is still a simple "ZTE" logo mark, after all -- but the subtle refinements do lend an element of modern flavor to the otherwise minimalist brand mark.

Flickr Wall Art now lets you print others users’ photos

Flickr's Wall Art printing service, first announced in October, has expanded quickly in its short time, growing from only allowing U.S. users to print their own photographs to including all users regardless of where they're located. Now the photo hosting service has announced its latest update for Wall Art, one that some users had hoped would come about: the ability to print (nearly) any photo available on the site, no longer limiting users to their own library of content.

Netflix will expand to Australia, New Zealand in March 2015

Netflix will expand to Australia, New Zealand in March 2015

Netflix, taking a moment from its seemingly perpetual content revelations, has announced that it'll be getting a big expansion early next year, moving into Australia and New Zealand in March 2015. This follows the company's launch in France back in September -- a place where it hasn't entirely been welcomed -- and will likely in the same way include a mixture of locally-relevant content and the shows that span its global viewership. The video streaming service is remaining tight-lipped about pricing, however, saying it'll announce that sometime in the future.
