Prof. Don Patterson explains the outcome of the 3D printing project that his research group is working on. A QR code is printed onto a physical representation of a bitcoin. The resulting object is not quite good enough, but some good lessons were learned.

I think that it's easier to create new coins, everyone can start making them at home now Cheesy

"We are just fools. We insanely believe that we can replace one politician with another and something will really change. The ONLY possible way to achieve change is to change the very system of how government functions. Until we are prepared to do that, suck it up for your future belongs to the madness and corruption of politicians."

I think it isn't.
But is it difficult do make a 3D printer that works with some different colors?

I think the only way is via colored sandstone right now. You could also just press the whole thing into an ink pad.

The new MakerBot Replicator is capable of two-color printing. With previous models (single extruder) it would be a bit of a hassle.

I'd suggest painting the QR code after printing.

Can we make them edible? This way when you are done spending them, you have a tasty snack.

Facetious bastard, everyone knows that eating Bitcoins will create a bezoar. LOL
Much like the creation of pearls in oysters.
