Mentally-created constructs are now a reality according to this article.

@rideaspacecowboy: That's kinda cool and scary at the same time. These constructs, Are they hard? Do you think they have or will eventually have a physical.... effect(?) Like could we touch them? Or even worse, could they touch us? And what does it do to our brains in the long term? Let the speculation begin!

It's not about new technology or anything, it's because they just found strong enough willpower.

Hmm...interesting.

While in reality Green Lantern rings that convert energy into matter will probably never be practical (given mass-energy equivalence), the technology outlined in the original article could one day find as its fruition portable flash manufacturing devices similar to omni-tools from Mass Effect.

@betatesthighlander1: Aw, you're so nice to me. But really, I sometimes am

I believe Orange Lanterns (literally and figuratively) will come into existence in a few years. Damn, I need one of those omni-tool things

@akindoodle: don't say that about yourself

@redqueen: what would you do with that?

The omnitool or the green lantern ring? Well, for the green lantern ring; I would fly to a distant planet and name it Oa, name myself sole guardian of Oa and then form a corp. With an omnitool I would hack in to several servers and, naturally, bring the world to it's knees. :D

@betatesthighlander1: I'm serious! Well, not really but the constructs are even made out of orange plastic! And Orange Lanterns are greedy right? Imagine what would happen if those things were mass produced. Human and Orange constructs were made for each other

@redqueen: Can I crash your world domination party?

I'm sorry the moment I saw Fox News I stop believing it

@akindoodle: No, go and crash someone else's world domination party.

Ah, just kidding, let it never be said that us world dominators are cruel beings. You can crash it.

Not too shocking, honestly. It's not as difficult as hard-light or even a good holograph. It's basically an upgrade the 3D printing.

3D printing? There's already 3D printed guns.

Sure :) Everyone is invited - I need as many people as possible to fight in my gladiatorial death match afterwards, they'll be goody bags for the victors.
