I agree, Rob. Fifteen hours to print and an hour to assemble is better than I expected. Cool story.

GTOlover, good point. It's been awhile since I took pictures with my analog Olympus and tried to get them printed. A quick web search on "film developing" tells me the drugstore chains still do that. Also, there are still professional photographers who use non-digital cameras to do things that still can't be done with digital ones, so there must still be at least some professional photo labs around.

Thanks Rob--that's pretty funny: "Gadget Freak videos that take nearly as long to download as this camera takes to print." Yes, I'm pretty sure you need to watch the printer during the whole process.

I know the film and developing can still be done, but my how it has shrank! I remember the day when you found this stuff everywhere. Doubt that this will revive the analog film market.

The next generation should be to print a digital camera. Or at least the frame as the insides would have to be made conventionally.

I agree, far911. The idea of sharing design changes is also a nice feature: crowdsourcing for camera improvements.

Impressive stuff indeed. I'm glad 3D printing is making its way down to the educational level by allowing young minds experiment with the technology and come up with new ideas.

Very impressive, Ann. Actually, I think that's pretty good time considering the complexity of a camera. Heck, I've seen Gadget Freak videos that take nearly as long to download as this camera takes to print. If you don't have to babysit the printer, 15 hours isn't so long. But I would guess you have to hang around the printer for each individual part.

Much has been made over the potentially dangerous flammability of lithium-ion batteries after major companies like Boeing, Sony, and Tesla have grappled with well-publicized battery fires. Researchers at Stanford University may have come up with a solution to this problem with a smart sensor for lithium-ion batteries that provides a warning if the battery is about to overheat or catch fire.
In this new Design News feature, "How it Works," we’re starting off by examining the inner workings of the electronic cigarette. While e-cigarettes seemed like a gimmick just two or three years ago, they’re catching fire -- so to speak. Sales topped $1 billion last year and are set to hit $10 billion by 2017. Cigarette companies are fighting back by buying up e-cigarette manufacturers.
