Regardless of recent sad events in the file-sharing world, like closure of MegaUpload and Filesonic’s refusal for continuing file-sharing, the world’s largest BitTorrent tracker The Pirate Bay has introduced this Monday a new feature available for its visitors: the downloading of physical objects.
The Pirate Bay has created a new content category and called it “Physibles”. There its visitors will be able to download digital designs used with 3D printers to recreate physical objects. The BitTorrent tracker made an announcement through their blog, saying that the service believed the next step in copying would be made from digital form into physical form. It seems that the next step will actually be physical objects, or as The Pirate Bay decided to call them, “Physibles”: data objects that can become physical.
The representatives of the tracker believe that things like 3-dimensional printers, scanners and such are only the first step, and in the nearest future users will be able to print their spare parts for the vehicles and the sneakers – in something like 20 years.
Nevertheless, The Pirate Bay isn’t the first outfit to offer such services: for example, Thingverse has been doing it for a while now. However, the “Physibles” of The Pirate Bay contain a lot of designs, and insiders believe that this new development should be big enough to go as far as to change the name of the service into The Product Bay. They say that the future of sharing is in physible information. The service is currently considering temporarily renaming itself to The Product Bay, but has no graphical artist around to create a logo. However, they promised to download one in future. Today it is unclear whether “physibles” will have the same success as common torrenting, but users already understand that this would complicate the copyright debates even more.

Thanks I just watched the video. I was skeptical but I see now that what you print out is not the actual object but a replica. It is still cool though and crazy at the same time.
|This is very cool technology, try looking for the video clip on Youtube or just Google it and you'll be amazed at what they can create with this printer.|
|hell ill sign up rite away once they get it perfected 1:1 copys of real objects aka you copy a camera and out comes a real camera etc xD|
