Tesla motors and their body-sized battery is making electric cars more of an everyday reality.

In a demonstration of the state of the art in 3-D printing, Siemens has taken a 3-D printed gas turbine blade and successfully put it through the paces of a turbine operating at high temperature, pressure, and centrifugal force.
