This is one of the most amazing Inventions I had ever seen in my life and we could see this as part of the norm soon. Its a 3d printer, basically you can make multiple plastic things out of it (hope they use recycled plastic) Lets say ladies can make accessories out of it, Little kids can make their own toys and many more. what amaze is that you will design it in your computer , lets say you designed a plastic bracelet, well after designing it to the computer, The 3d printer will make the bracelet you designed: source: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8aghzpO_UZE I cant believe such thing is possible

Hello CaptAlbertWhisker This 3D Printer does sound interesting. If I had such a thing I could save my empty milk and juice containers, melt them down into sheets of plastic, which I could then use to print on and craft into a variety of items. How big a sheet of plastic does the printer accept? Could I design and print out clothes with it? Peace

They have 4 types of material, Polyester, Plastic,Metal and a plastic like material that is as hard as metal. From what i see you can make tools, chair, accessories, shoes, and furnitures. Maybe you can design clothes but it wont be fabric, it will be hard plastic... You know those lady Gaga like costumes.

That could work well for my designs as I am considering outfits like giant playing cards and various famous buildings.

I would like to have one of my own, I am not an expert sculptor but it may seemed to be easier in a computer. I may also make action figures. a printer that creates a solid object, I never imagined such thing will be invented. anyway they also developed printers that create human organs.

3d printers doesnt print flat pictures, They print solid figures, like statues,shoes, mugs, kitchenwares. A 3d printer can actually make a bicycle. You didnt watch the video didnt you.

My boyfriend is quite enamored of 3-D printers. I expect that we'll have one in our home office one of these days. I can certainly see the appeal of such a machine, and it definitely holds a great deal of potential. However, I do wonder if it will live up to its great potential, or if it will become just another expensive toy.

I think these printers will be the future of manufacturing and factories. if I have the metal printers, I will make utensils, knives and swords.... It seemed to be cool. The plastic one, I will make toys, action figures and maybe some furnitures.
