Word of the day: Physibles

Physibles: Data objects for 3D printing.

We believe that the next step in copying will be made from digital form into physical form. It will be physical objects. Or as we decided to call them: Physibles. Data objects that are able (and feasible) to become physical. We believe that things like three dimensional printers, scanners and such are just the first step. We believe that in the nearby future you will print your spare sparts for your vehicles. You will download your sneakers within 20 years.

Personally, I think The Pirate Bay are jumping on this bandwagon a little early. They’re doing some other interesting stuff though – recently they have started offering their front page ‘doodle’ space to anyone with something cool or interesting to promote.

They’ve also launched BayFiles, a filesharing service; bayimg, an uncensored image hosting service and PasteBay, a Pastebin style service.
