Researchers discover a new way to identify 3D printed guns

Researchers at the University at Buffalo have found that 3D printers have fingerprints, essentially slight differences in design that can be used to identify prints. This means investigators can examine the layers of a 3D printed object and pinpoint exactly which machine produced the parts. “3D printing has many wonderful uses, but it’s also a counterfeiter’s dream. Even more concerning, it has the potential to make firearms more readily available to people who are not allowed to possess them...

It’s no secret that the IoT (Internet of Things) has been increasing its critical mass over the past few years. It started slowly, in a very stealthy way: lightbulbs, smart wearables and speakers. Now, the IoT is gaining momentum, making its way into everyday products like refrigerators, doorbells, thermostats and cars. It’s seeping into every facet of our lives. And, with Amazon’s Echo Auto announcement (which brings Alexa into the car), the war for dominance of the IoT is quietly being waged. ...
