Though we wouldn’t put it past The Who’s Pete Townshend or Guns N’ Roses Slash to give it a try, Sandvik has just created the world’s first 3D printed guitar that’s actually smash proof. One look at this layered titanium masterpiece, and you’d believe it, too. The Swedish tooling, materials, and mining company figured they’d try their hand at building the ultimate apocalypse/angry rocker proof guitar and partnered with Swede guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen on the project. The most important aspect was eliminating the joint between the neck of the guitar and the body, the weakest link. The guitar’s neck and fretboard were milled from solid bars of recycled stainless steel, and they both extend deep into the body of the guitar for serious strength. The 3D printed body uses a fine titanium powder in fused material layers that are thinner than a human hair and stacked one on top of the other. The result is light weight, high strength, and zero waste since you use only the material that’s needed. The look, to say the least, is beautiful, and the frustration by guitarists to render it a pile of bits may lead them to move to keyboards for destruction satisfaction.

Whether at home or on-the-go, when it comes to vaporizers, we want it all. We want to be able to use full flower or potent concentrates depending on the mood–and keep it smooth without any harsh smoke. We want multiple modes for unique combinations of flavor and vapor. We want an oven that’s as easy to clean as it is adjustable depending on the length of the session. Sounds impossible, right? It’s not with PAX Plus. In addition to packing all those features into one perfectly portable device, it’s also one the most sleek and stylish products that’s come out recently.
