The prototype Vista 3D inkjet print head can print metals, plastics, ceramics, biological cells, and enzymes. This ability is due to the print head's droplet ejection motion, which can print large particles of 50 microns and above, as well as viscous and volatile fluids. It is currently used in 2D printers and being adapted to 3D printers.(Source: TTP)

NO RATINGS
Ann, the single biggest problem science fiction authors face is that of being superceded by the real world.

It's so difficult for them to accurately predict how fast technology will progress.

Home fabbers are NOT that far away from reality, are they?
