I remember being amazed about home rapid prototyping machines when I first read about them. It’s hard to learn about these things and not be convinced that they are going to change the world.
Which just brought it all flooding back. Because I’m pretty sure that at some point in the future, we probably will be able to pirate a car. Or maybe at least an ipod, or somewhere inbetween.
Then, I presume,
all hell breaks loose.
I recently came across Thingiverse, one of a number of sites that have created online communities to share designs for digital printers. Amazing how quickly these things develop.
