@Ann: Have you tried 3D Printing by any chance ? What is your idea on it ? Do you think it can have bad impacts to the world we live ?

a.saji, I have not personally used 3D printing. I've talked to people who have used it, mostly the high-end machines producing engineering prototypes and small-batch end-products for aerospace. Like any technology, it could have negative impacts on our world, which we've discussed in the comments sections to many stories in Design News.

@Ann: Yes there are always 2 sides of everything and same theory applies for this as well. I feel 3D printing is superb and will be the next big thing in IT but the fear is what if it goes in the wrong direction. What kind of negative impacts will it have ?

@Ann: If people try to misuse the beauty of technology creations, then the outcome will be utterly dangerous. That is where you take the wrong turn on things.
