The spy who hacked me: Measuring the security vulnerabilities of 3-D printing -- Science360 Extra

In this episode, Jordan and Charlie explore how a smartphone can hack a 3-D printer by measuring leaked energy and acoustic waves.

However, the team says, there are a few simple solutions to make 3-D printing more secure.
