The guy in the video said 15-30 thousand, I believe.

I have begun to wonder the future effect this will have on manufacturing.


I've been wondering what this will do to gun laws.
Be bold and risk defeat, or be cautious and encourage it.

Answer: Buy more ammo while you can.
You already have enough guns. Buy
ammo, save the brass and get ammo
making equipment. That's the ticket.

I have so many hand guns here I've
lost count. It's stupid. No more. From
now on it's ammo, baby..

I know an old guy who was on the
fringes of the mob in the 60's. He has
two guns. A .25 auto he carries in the
pocket of his pants everywhere there
isn't a metal detector. And a .38 police
special in his house. He says what
they all say, from experience. If you
can't hit what you're aiming at with
6 shots, the next 12 aren't going to help
you.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

Okay folks, you all know I just can't hack mathematics, so maybe its the terms "additive" and "subtractive" that are giving me a mental block of some sort but what is this stuff about Replicators, MakerBots, The world of things.

It seems to be about making stuff locally and perhaps by the purchaser's computer rather than a far off factory.

Need a brake part...... make it. Need a wrench.... make it. There is talk of cars rather than just car parts, but all I've seen so far is a heck of alot of articles on the web and only tiny little toys actually in three D. Oh yeah, recently a micro jet was made in Australia and displayed in the UK so apparently some practical devices are actually being made.

But can anyone tell me will it really just be toy yachts coming out of those Replicators or will it ever be real yachts and real airplanes? Will I finally see what a widgit looks like?

What is this 3-D printing that has Forbes and a few others all agog?


Oh, my!! Now someone has "upped the ante" to 4-D printing wherein things change shape after they've been printed.
Is this still hype? Are the people in MakeBot labs really going to start printing out a yacht rather than a rudder because its cheaper to do the whole thing?
