In a first for the still-growing world of 3D printing, scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have unveiled their newest 3D printer, capable of printing with 10 separate materials at once! The new MultiFab printer takes advantage of a new photopolymer mixing system and fine printheads in order to accomplish this feat, giving the printer a huge range of versatility and possibilities that did not exist previously in modern 3D printers. The printer is also able to 3D-scan objects and then print around them, enabling the printer to quickly and accurate create solid cases and designs around pre-existing objects! On top of that, the printer is extremely affordable, coming in at only $7,000 as opposed to the $250,000 asking price for similar multi-material industrial printers. MIT scientists hope that their new printer will one day lead to an easy-to-use, practical solution for customers who wish to create complex 3D-printed designs at reasonable prices. Until then, check out the video below to see the MultiFab in action!

Television studio ABC is set to bring the Muppets back to TVs across the nation with a new series! The series will feature the return of a number of beloved Muppet characters like Kermit, Miss Piggy, Gonzo, and others, but with a twist. The producers of the new series hope to gear the new show towards a more adult audience, who grew up with these beloved puppet characters. The new show will instead focus more on the personal lives of the Muppets, shown off in a comedic documentary-style show similar to fan favorites like “The Office” and “Arrested Development”.

Using this opportunity, the directors hope to build upon the individual personalities and relationships of the Muppets not often seen in their previous, children-focused shows and movies. Specifics of the program are still under wraps, but ABC hopes to release more info on this new series later in the year.

The book, titled “What Pet Should I Get?” was discovered in Seuss’ home in 2014 by his widow and secretary, and included an entire completed manuscript and set of illustrations. Thanks to this discovery, this forgotten Seuss book will finally be released to the public this July, over two decades after it was previously worked on! On top of that, two other books are scheduled to be published, based on other manuscripts and material found in the home. “What Pet Should I Get?” is available now for pre-order, and is sure to brighten up children’s lives across the world this summer!
