‘Toothless’ is Born on Little Girl’s Demand

dragonQuite an unusual demand was made by a seven-year-old girl from Australia to a group of scientists of CSRIO. She wrote a beautiful letter to CSRIO scientists asking them if they could make a dragon for her.

Very innocently, Sophie has shared that if the scientists will make a male dragon then she would name it as Stuart. But if they come up with a girl then it would be named as Toothless. After reading the letter, the scientists were left amazed.

They wrote on their blog, "We've been doing science since 1926 and we're quite proud of what we have achieved. We've put polymer banknotes in your wallet, insect repellent on your limbs and Wi-Fi in your devices".

But one thing that they have missed in more than 87 years is creation of dragon or its eggs. The scientists have replied to Sophie that will surely consider her demand. That was the time when creation of dragon started to take place at Lab 22, CSIRO's additive manufacturing facility in Melbourne.

With the usage of titanium and 3D printing technology, Toothless was born. Titanium is not only light in weight, but quite strong as well. Sophie is aware of the news and is quite happy to know about the same.
