Harold and the Purple Crayon Bridge

At least, that’s what this link reminds me of. For those who’ve never read it, Crockett Johnson’s picture book Harold and the Purple Crayon was about a little boy with a magic crayon he’d use to draw whatever he wanted. Then he could climb the objects as if they were three-dimensional. There are several sequels.

Now, with a special 3-D printer, a company is constructing a bridge in Amsterdam.

Fantastic, and I agree with your reference.

People often talk about how science fiction predicts the future. Harold and the Purple Crayon is fantasy, and yet with 3-D printers it has come to life.

I’ve also read they’re 3-D printing inexpensive prosthetic hands and legs, etc., for those in need.

I fucking live in my own future now. This totally fucking rocks!
