Your new home–direct from the printer?

20140121-051425.jpgSo, what have you read about 3D Printers?

I want you to imagine that these machines–this concept–has only been around now (popular-wise) for a year. They gained a lot of press several months back when it was learned that they can print working guns. I went to a presentation on them three or four months ago and basically, they can built anything–well print anything–out of any material up to titanium.

Today they are applying this technology in the medical field to reconstruct body parts and in space to make whatever is needed on the fly (sounds like Star Trek doesn’t it?).

Now today they are saying they can construct a printer large enough to print out (i.e., build) multi story homes. Next it will be apartments and then high rise buildings.

What about printing a copy of yourself? Shades of Multiplicity–“I like pizza!”

Today garages are looking at simply printing replacement parts for new cars and heck, why not simply print me a new car while you’re at it.

What can your imagination dream up to print–it would seem that size is not a limiting factor nor is base material? Think about it.
