Perplexing 3-D Printers Explained…By a 10 Year Old

I love when the internet decides to explain something to me in an easy to follow way.  Just a few days ago I was telling my boyfriend that I was perplexed by the whole 3-D printer craze.  What is it? How does it work? What is the material that it “prints”? I just plain didn’t get it.  He gave me a simple enough answer in a matter of a few sentences that satisfied me enough for the moment (these are the things I think about while I’m at work).I figured I would just keep my eyes out for articles on how it worked in the future to get a better understanding.

Lo and behold.  A 10 year old decides to describe it to me a in a cute, funny, and easy to understand way.  (I’ll admit, I’m still perplexed by the whole thing a bit, but this kid’s presentation is so well put together, I just had to share.)  I hope you enjoy!

Nerd Raps – “Don’t Mess with that CSS”

I have an penchant for rap videos about nerdy topics, like math, copyright infringement, or the Large Hadron Collider.  This is the latest that I’ve stumbled upon…apparently a follow up to “Don’t Copy That Floppy” which unfortunately I am not familiar with.  Let the hilarity ensue!

Trust me – it’s funny and informative!
