Cool application of this technology

It's one thing to replicate auto parts--it's another to revive history! That's a very cool application of this technology. And as an avid music lover who misses that scratch of vinyl, the idea that this could breathe new life into records also is appealing.

Greg, I agree. The videos showing the reproduced record were pretty impressive. The phonograph player reminded me of my Close and Play toy I had as a child. The limits of 3D printing applications are truly limited by one's imagination. Cool article Cabe!

As 3D printing technology continues to become more and more available, imaginative uses like this will continue to pop up.  Very interesting use of technology.

Who knows, maybe in a few thousand years some being will use the same process to read the golden disc on Voyager. 
Seriously though, I wonder what other lost reproductions can be recovered with a similar process.
