The Dragon V2 is an upgraded design from Elon Musk's company SpaceX, which features a 3D-printed titanium engine, which goes to demonstrate the potential of this kind of technology.

The spaceship also has a noticeable inside area, featuring a clean design and the ability for the astronauts to interact with the control panel through a sleek touchscreen device. Moreover, the chairs used inside the spaceship look both luxurious as well as comfortable, which is important considering the ride to space is not always a smooth one. This is a first for SpaceX, as up until now the company has not produced a "manned commercial spacecraft," as stated on DesignBoom. The first push into this area will hopefully be a successful one, considering the team is already using forward-thinking technology such as 3D printing to launch the product.
