Here's where it gets real: A guy in Austin, TX has successfully "printed" a gun and actually fired it.
It doesn't look like much, and it only fires .22's, but still, it worked. Since the printer cost $8,000, I'm not sure this is a very cost effective way to get a gun, but still, it worked.
I already have a gun, but what I don't have is a really cool car. I mean Jaguar, Aston Martin, or maybe Ferrari cool. So here's my plan: First, I've gotta get me one of those fancy printers. You think Office Depot has them? (I have an account there.) Then I'll need a Chilton parts manual for my chosen car. Finally, recognizing my technological limitations, I'll need a nerd to run the machine. Pick paint and upholstery colors and Waa-Laa....dream car!
Maybe I'll start small just to get the hang of it. Like maybe a Mini, the original sized one. Then raise the bar a notch at a time until I get what I want. Isn't this cool? I may have to rethink my prejudice against technology.
Reality check....maybe there's more to this than I first thought.
