Spotted: Researchers at Berkeley have created a 3D printer that turns liquids into solid objects in a matter of minutes. A series of computer images of a single object are projected onto a rotating cylinder filled with 3D printing resin (a gooey looking liquid). The liquid hardens as it is exposed to light, taking the form of the object projected onto it. The process differs from traditional 3D printing, which builds an object up layer by layer. This one prints everything in one go. The projector runs through the images and they are 'burned' on the liquid and rotated around. The…
