Local Motors, the innovative company with the deceptively low-key name, has been researching and developing the use of 3D printing for car bodies for some time. At the last Detroit Auto Show, they printed a car, right there at their booth. Now they have an all-new, sleeker, and more practical design.
Local Motors is 3D-printing a car on the floor of the Detroit Auto Show right now. That's cool. What's cooler? They're building two new factories that combine a research lab, a manufacturing center, and a retail outlet to put them on sale next year.
