The "printing" of solid objects has been around for a while. This seems to
be many levels above though. While it seems impossible to do, so was the
box that sits in your living room with the guy inside entertaining you.
No common scanner will show the axle on which the adjuster turns.
Industrial x-ray will.
Maybe they touched up the scan to show the hidden parts before feeding
it to the printer.
If so they glossed over this.

Jay Leno has a 3-D printer and loves it.
Scan, print, and cast from the printed article. Cool.
One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life: That word is love.

Powdered egg and sausage in print cartridges and you can order breakfast
over the Internet.
Or a, fully working, model of Ashley Judd, maybe?
I just bought an add-on to my 3D printer that will allow printing in
fondant or royal icing (wedding cake toppers?), peanut butter, liver
sausage (doggie birthday cakes) or any paste that can be extruded...
I fantasized, and had a recurring dream, as a six year old in 1949, that
one day I would own a book that had all the books in the world on it and
I could read it without turning pages.
The eBook is now a common item.
Over 40 years ago, when first introduced to digital computers, I
fantasized that one day I could digitize all my prized "stuff" and store
them on a computer, instead of on a shelf.
Seems like that is also coming to pass ...
It's great to be around to see these dreams/fantasy's come true.
ITMT,think I'll keep fantasizing/dreaming.
Ashely Judd, I'm waiting ... ;)
