The season opener of the TV show Elementary featured a murder committed with a plastic gun that was built using a 3D printer, then the gun was dissolved (except for the firing pin, which was a nail). Distrubing. But possible?

I've actually printed the 3d gun. However it is a bunch of hype. you could build a safer, more reliable, and cheaper gun from a piece of pipe. You could also print a knife. 

The shows were just looking for some way to be relevant to the trends. That part is pretty cool.

Ya, well, in the show, one of the guns did blow up and fail!

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
