I am a big fan of 3D printing, hell I am writing my thesis on it. So this combines two of my interests. Having another bottle opener around is always a plus. This,

popped up on one of my feeds so I thought I would share. I am going to have to convince the wife that I need one of these. I guess that means I need to lose one of my clips that I do have and hide my wallet.

Because it layers plastic into an object. You could literally "print" a functioning crescent wrench.

Or any three dimensional object. There is even a youtube video of guys who made a working ar-15 lower with a 3d printer. It's really amazing technology.

$90 retail and $50 as a kickstarter for a money clip? No thanks. Can't stand money clips anyway.

Loose half the thickness, half the weight, and all of the "complexity" of that design by making it one piece. It would also be a few dollars and not $50.
