There have been several news stories lately about young kids getting hands.

You know those new printers that can create body parts, steaks and rocket components? How long do you think it'll be before someone figures out how to print some primo bud?

actually i don't know of any that will do all three. 


i'm pretty sure i wouldn't want to do all three or four on the same one either. 

at least i don't think i'd want to eat something that came out of one used for making rocket parts.

(smoke the number four, that came out of one for making rocket parts, at your own risk)


i know of DIFFERENT ones that will do EACH of the first three.


all of which aren't really future, but exist in production right now.

they aren't in most retail outlets yet.  but each can be ordered on line.  the last two are a bit expensive. 


actually i don't know about steaks, other then survey stakes. 


but cake decorator ones exist.  they have them at baskin robins. 

also embroidery machine ones have been around for at least a decade now too (sometimes set up as booths in shopping malls).


speaking of rocket parts, there are giant ones that will print house parts, as in whole walls and plumbing and electrical sub assemblies.  also whole car bodies.


still more interested in the desktop kind the average joe can afford.  to make our own little plastic fiddly bits, to our own design.

(including of course, parts for model rockets, even working ones)
