Episode 178: Printing Tech

The Queens are firing up the dusty old printer in the corner of your office… or are they?

In this episode the Queens do tackle printing tech… but it went in directions nobody expected.

Rad is the most normal of the lot, looking at the importance of certain inks and paper – especially when it comes to printing photographs.

Amanda takes us on a tasty journey in the world of 3D printed food, which is very much a thing. Rae delves into the human body where 3D print biomaterial is being used to print organs in real time.

And Tegan brings down the mood by looking at the rising issues of 3D printed guns in Australia, despite our strict gun laws.
