Replicators


A bicycle designed on a computer and constructed by a printer, sounds far fetched right? None the less, it has been done. Nylon powder and lasers were used to melt layer upon layer to build the design. Can Star Trek-like replicators be far behind?

I agree with Robb. I saw a 3D replicator way back when being used in a plant that made model airplane parts. I'll agree this is more sophisticated maybe and is doing the job differently but it's just v3.3 of an old idea.

Peace and long life.
