Now, this is expensive, but interesting, and could maybe do with a more interesting design. Like built into a wall to make it look like a Star Trek replicator unit :)

There have been laser based modelers out there for a few years now but I think the break-through with the above device is that by using a different technique it has really broken the entry level price point for these types of machines.

At under $1,000 USD, I know some guys who would absolutely love to have one of them in their garage. For me the price would still have to come down a bit but, yes, I would love to have one of them also.

I read somewhere they (someone) made a prototyper that creates food. I forget where I saw it. but it laid down layers of tofu with flavor crystals er something in it.
