3D printing

Ever order fast food and sit there waiting for it to arrive thinking it just isn't fast enough?

Well it looks like that feeling could soon be a thing of the past as the world's first 3D pizza printer is on the way and it is set to change everything.

According to Fast Casual, the people who invented NASA's first 3D food printing robot Beehex have developed a pizza printing prototype which can create oven-ready pizzas in any shape imaginable in less than four minutes.

And as if that isn't enough, Beehex is also working on a 3D food printing kiosk which can create and bake one pizza pie ever 60 seconds – that's a lot of pizza.

These pizza gods have left chef Pasquale Cozzolino in charge of sourcing the right base, sauce and cheese for the printer and it seems he's going all out on finding the very best ingredients for the project by importing tomatoes from Mount Vesuvius and mozzarella from Italian cows.

Pasquale – who owns restaurants in New York and Atlanta – also intends to use 80-year-old yeast for the dough – fancy!

Because the pizzas will be ready within minutes and should be available to order by app, this new venture could change how we eat pizza forever.

Oh the possibilities…



If you live in Spiddal and thought you saw Batman recently, you’re not seeing things after all.

Julian Checkley has created one of the best Batman costumes the internet has ever seen.

Galway based Julian runs the Order 66 Creatures and Effects studio in Ireland and created the amazing costume based on the Batsuit from Batman: Arkham Origins. We honestly wouldn’t mind Ben Affleck taking a trip to Galway to try it on for size.

Julian and his team in Galway designed the costume and ordered the 3D-prints from a company in Canada.

After having them delivered to Ireland the team cleaned them up and put the whole costume together. And it is mind blowing. When asked how it really feels to be the Batman, Julian keeps it real: “At first you feel like a bit of an idiot: you're a 45-year old guy dressed in a Batman suit.”

Soz, Ben Affleck, turns out you’re not that cool after all.

Julian has said that putting the costume together involves airbrushing and making an undervest that isn’t just lightweight, but flexible too. Important to for leaping around Eyre Square after villains we’re sure.

Galway residents were left a bit baffled when they spotted Batman charging around town like a true comic book hero. With the help of professional photographer Kamil Krawczak Julian donned the suit and unleashed his inner superhero.

He took to Galway city’s rooftops to photograph the suit in all its fabulous glory.

The suit has taken the internet by storm with images going viral on popular sites Reddit and imgur.

Julian has even had his work featured in The Irish Times and gotten a shout out from Ville-Valtteri Kinnunen, who designed the Batsuit for the popular Batman video game. Impressive.

An Irish Batman out on the streets? If someone has €8,000 to spare then it could become a reality. 



In today’s feel-good news story: Bubbles the Dachsund.

Bubbles was born in July 2014 with only two legs.

Her owner Trevor Byers, from Texas, noticed when she was still a tiny pup that she had been born without her front paws.

Trevor was worried that little Bubbles wouldn’t have the best quality of life growing up. It turned out that Bubble was as happy as could be if she had a wheelchair to help her maneuver about her business.

With the help of a 3D printer, Trevor was able to come up with a design that would allow for Bubbles to live her best life.

“Many many more failed attempts later, I have come up with a design that is perfect for my Bubbles,” Trevor, who is a mechanic, explains.

Bubbles one-of-a-kind wheels are made especially light-weight so she can scoot around as much as she likes without putting too much pressure on her back. She’s even got a customised pair.

Trevor and Elissa, Bubble’s owners, are now on a mission to ensure that any other dogs like Bubbles can lead a happy life as they’ve decided to make and donate 3D-printed wheels for dogs.

Bubbles has a Facebook page, and Trevor has even supplied instructions for people who have their own 3D printers and want to help struggling dogs live their best life.

We’re having a hard time controlling our feelings. She's just so happy.
