3D Printer Video

Welcome to the future, ladies and gentlemen.

Just imagine where this is going.


  1. Isn't that awesome! They're adapting these to print bones for accident victims. Just think of all the medical advances.

    Or online shopping? Order something and have it printed to your house! All it takes is buying some powder cartridges. Change what's in the powder and you can change the material.

    This could revolutionize factories. No more assembly lines. Just print the product.

  2. The funny thing is, the replicators were always my least favorite technology in star trek. I always thought of them as implausible (I know right, out of everything why did I single that out?). But I might have to eat my words, this isn't THAT far away.

  3. Making food will be harder. This isn't edible food with varied nutrients yet. But things like hard goods replicators? I could see that happening. Clothes, weapons, ammunition... I think all of those might be possible.

    If they can find a way to recycle this so a stained shirt could be tossed in and reprinted without the stain, that would be perfect. I'd stop doing laundry!

  4. Dude- coolest thing ever. I watched a video where a guy has a custom pair of soles made for his soccer shoes. I love it. I want one.

  5. Think of how handy that would be for replacing worn out clothes? Or fabricating hard goods after a natural disaster? We could make tents, shoes, clothes... I love this machine!
