Car companies are looking for every possible way to eke out a few more miles per gallon these days, some of which involve high-tech combustion, and some others involve ultra-mild hybrid systems. But one generally accepted move is to remove weight, which helps both in efficiency and performance. General Motors has revealed a new technology that may become commonplace for shaving off a few pounds here and there, and the results are pretty freaky-looking.
They look pretty awesome, too.

With the help of a roller coaster and a 3D printed model of a full kidney, a team of medical researchers may have recently discovered why roller coasters cause people to pass kidney stones. According to Gizmodo, the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association published a study this month by Michigan State University urologist David D. Wartinger and his team of researchers which presented evidence that riding moderate-intensity roller coasters can trigger the passage of small kidney stones.
Translogic host Jonathon Buckley heads to the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee to drive the 3D-Printed Utility Vehicle created by the US Department of Energy. It was developed alongside a 3D-printed home, and the two can share battery energy.

Toyota's i-Road electric concept vehicle contest includes a chance to 3D-print panels.
At the Geneva Motor Show this year EDAG Engineering showed off its Genesis Cockpit concept. Built with a 3D printing technique called "fused deposition modeling," it was a skeletal passenger cell suspended inside a protective shell. At next year's Geneva show EDAG will present another take on the natural forms combined with 3D printing with its Light Cocoon concept (click the image to enlarge).
