3D Printers are not only changing industrial manufacturing they are changing the fantasy world of exotic gear and weaponry associated with online games like Destiny, a “first person shooter game” and winner of the BAFTA Best Game of 2014 Award. Games on platforms such as PlayStation and XBox and publishers such as Activision and Sony Computer Entertainment are cashing in.
In the virtual world of Destiny, for “17 strange coins”, a player can buy a Gjallarhorn rocket launcher aka a “nubetube” and then purchase dozens of upgrades using yet more strange coins. The Gjallarhorn rocket launcher comes with projectile tracking capabilities, fast operation, a huge blast radius, stability, quick reload, solar damage capability, ascendant energy and spin metals.
In the real world, a number of companies are creating 3D printed exotic weaponry for gamers who are now flocking to be the first to hold these cherished weapons, uniforms, swords and shields in their hands and wear them real life battles.
The following video is a testament to the exciteIment surrounding the new 3D printer produced fantasy gear. If you’re a kid and you play these games you MUST have this stuff.
