Tech Talk Episode 13: SpaceX Launched New Starlink Satellites, 3D Print your Next Car, YouTube Policy Changes

Ever thought about driving a 3D printed car? Well, now is the time to think about it.

LA NPDT Tech Talk is bringing you the latest developments in car parts and other technology. We’ll keep you tuned in the newest gadgets and product innovations across the globe. Join LA New Product Development Team for the most recent, up-to-date tech news each day. Now, let’s get to today’s news.

YouTube Policy Changes

YouTube’s Terms of Service Agreement changes were published recently by Google. The new terms go into play on December 10. The first big change is as follows: “Content is the responsibility of the person or entity that provides it to the Service. YouTube is under no obligation to host or serve Content.” This change makes sense and resolves some hosting issues that YouTube has run into recently.

This next change; however, is causing quite a stir. It reads: “YouTube may terminate your access, or your Google account’s access to all or part of the Service if YouTube believes, in its sole discretion, that provision of the Service to you is no longer commercially viable.” YouTube clarified that they are not changing the way their products work or any settings. They are also not changing how they work with creators or their rights to monetize.

Hopefully, they stick true to their word. We’ll see how this plays out into the new year.

New Satellites in Space

SpaceX launched 60 new satellites into space on Monday. They plan to do this several more times over the next year, working to build a massive broadband-from-space business. The company plans to launch over 10,000 Starlink satellites into space in the next year, slowly adding coverage area throughout the year. Just last month Elon Musk sent out the first tweet using the Starlink satellites. While there is still a ways to go before the entire broadband service is up and running, SpaceX is excited for the possibilities this project provides.

Print your Next Car

Yep, you heard that right. Volkswagen and HP have linked up, and are working on a project that will eventually lead to 3D printed car parts. HP recently printed 10,000 metal scale models of VW’s electric car ID.3. Working in phases, they eventually hope to start printing out up to 100,000 parts a year, starting with smaller parts like gearshift knobs and mirror mounts. Eventually, they hope to print out structural car parts for their cars. Thoughts? Would you buy a 3D printed car?
