The Pirate Bay declares new category 3D printed “physibles”

ThePirateBay, the famed torrent site , just launched a new category "Physbles" which are essentially files that describe physical objects such as CAD designs. These can be used with 3D printers such as Makerbot Replicator

Here's a quote from their blog:
We believe that the next step in copying will be made from digital form into physical form. It will be physical objects. Or as we decided to call them: Physibles. Data objects that are able (and feasible) to become physical. We believe that things like three dimensional printers, scanners and such are just the first step. We believe that in the nearby future you will print your spare sparts for your vehicles. You will download your sneakers within 20 years.

The benefit to society is huge. No more shipping huge amount of products around the world. No more shipping the broken products back. No more child labour. We'll be able to print food for hungry people. We'll be able to share not only a recipe, but the full meal. We'll be able to actually copy that floppy, if we needed one.

We believe that the future of sharing is about physible data. We're thinking of temporarily renaming ourselves to The Product Bay - but we had no graphical artist around to make a logo. In the future, we'll download one.

Cool but right now Thingiverse is the best place to find and share 3-d designs.

Great! I'm in UK and even though TPB has been banned here we still got pirate bay in UK a trusted proxy site that helps us access TPB. Now I have found out about this “physibles”.
