3-D printed gun designer gets book dealComment on this story
New York - A self-described crypto-anarchist known for designing a 3-D printed weapon has a book deal.
Gallery Books announced on Wednesday that it is publishing Cody Wilson's ’Negative Liberty: A Gun Printer's Guide to the Apocalypse.’
In a statement issued by his publisher, Wilson said his book would be a manifesto for “millennials and radicals” fighting state oppression in the digital age.
‘Negative Liberty’ is set to be released in fall 2015. Gallery Books is an imprint of Simon & Schuster.
The 25-year-old Wilson was a University of Texas law student when he made headlines last year after posting blueprints online for using 3-D printers to make a pistol he says he designed.
The State Department asked him to remove the blueprints, which were downloaded more than 100 000 times. - Sapa-AP
