British Art Museum Set to Display Guns Made by 3D Printers

London’s Victoria and Albert Museum of art and design will be purchasing and displaying prototypes of two of the controversial Liberator guns that people could produce themselves with 3D printers. The museum will buy the weapons from Defense Distributed, which distributed open source blueprints for the guns online before the US government demanded that it stop the practice. The museum will show the weapons during its London Design Festival from 14-22 September. (SlashDot)(Forbes)(BBC)
