The latest version of a 3-D printer has a revolutionary new feature: It can turn propellers into rocket-powered jets, which the inventor says will save the planet.
“The main advantage of this technology is that it is very cheap to produce, and it can produce very small objects with very small amounts of power,” the inventor, who goes by the online name of Terence P. Smith, told Wired.
“And this is an advantage over anything that’s been done before.”
The printer, which is part of a new company called Stratolaunch, has already flown propellers for the first time in the waters of California.
But Smith is more than just a 3d printer evangelist.
He also invented a propeller that turns propellers inside out, which he claims could reduce the amount of water that must be pumped into the ship to keep the ship’s propellers spinning.
The inventor of the new printer is a former Navy SEAL, and he told Wired he’d love to see a commercial product with the same design.
“I really like the idea of a submarine propellers that fly,” Smith said.
“They’re really strong and strong enough to carry a large load.

But the thing that’s kind of scary is that you can’t make a propellor for that to fly.”

“That would be like the best kind of submarine propells that you could make,” he added.
The idea is that the propellers would have to be reworked from scratch every time the boat is being refitted.
Smith says that by taking a regular propeller and modifying it with a new design, it could produce a submarine-like propeller for about $100 per boat, which could be useful in a few decades, he said.
The prototype shown here is actually a prototype that the inventor has been working on.
In the future, Smith says the technology could also be used to make submarines.
“If you could get a submarine that flies, I think that would be awesome,” he said, adding that the technology is a bit more complicated than just turning propellers in the sea.
“It’s a lot of machinery, a lot more complicated, but I think it’s going to be possible.”
Smith told Wired that the main reason for the submarine propeil technology is to make more ships for military use.
The military is looking to replace aging submarines with smaller vessels that can be launched and then towed away to deploy troops.
The technology could make those smaller ships more versatile and easier to deploy, Smith said, but he also said that the submarines could also use the technology to help them make the necessary repairs and repairs that can help them keep their ships running.
“We need to make sure that we don’t just have one ship that is always out there, and that we have multiple ships that need to be on the same coast,” he told the magazine.
“Because then you have this big problem with the whole thing not being able to operate together.”
In order to help keep the ships in the ocean, Smith is working on a system that would create a small vessel to carry equipment and supplies to shore, and then the submarine would land and refuel.
“There’s a reason why you have two ships, one that’s the propeller boat and the other that’s not, and the propellor boat is just carrying supplies,” Smith told the publication.
“When you land, the propelles do not have any power to go to the engine.”
The patent for the design shows the new propeller in a small boat that would take a few minutes to dock, and could also take two days to fly.
The patent shows how the new technology could be used for smaller submarines.
The patents also show the new submarine propeiler is capable of turning propeller blades inside out.
“In this example, the boat propeller is rotating inside out and producing thrust in a manner analogous to the thrust produced by the engine,” the patent says.
“This can result in the propulsion of the boat without the need for additional propulsion.”
