Once metadata gets incorporated into a Nakamoto blockchain, it enjoys all the benefits of the peer-to-peer network that curates it. The entries are accessible to anyone on earth who has a computer and an Internet connection. In order to destroy them, you would have to access every computer on the network (and someday, perhaps, even a constellation of satellites). They are impossible to change, and thus impossible to censor. And they carry with them both a time stamp and cryptographic proof of who created them.
Cohen wrote in a recent investors’ note sent to Ars that Ekso Bionics is “at the forefront of pioneering the field of human robotic exoskeleton to augment human strength, endurance and mobility.””We believe the Company’s vast experience, commercial offerings, research & development, partnerships and collaborations, and product developments position it well to be a current and future leader for exoskeletal related technologies and their various applications for society going forward,” he added

Here’s the best explanation of how Copyright and 3D printing overlap that I have seen online. Protip: the answer is, less than you thought.
Looks like Amazon isn’t the only one working on delivery-by-drone…
We’re now exploring what fully self-driving vehicles would look like by building some prototypes; they’ll be designed to operate safely and autonomously without requiring human intervention. They won’t have a steering wheel, accelerator pedal, or brake pedal… because they don’t need them. Our software and sensors do all the work. The vehicles will be very basic—we want to learn from them and adapt them as quickly as possible—but they will take you where you want to go at the push of a button. And that’s an important step toward improving road safety and transforming mobility for millions of people.
