It's too bad affordable home-based 3D printers were not around 20 years ago, otherwise my Lego and action figure collection would have grown to massive proportions.

Excellent slide show Jennifer.  One great assets of "additive manufacturing" is the degree of detail that is possible with the process.  The facemask and hand represent what can be accomplished.   Definitely wish I had been there to witness the show.

I agree the toys are cool, Chuck. But what impressed me were the body parts they were making with 3D printing.

I'm with you on that, Chuck. There are a lot of "creepily real" limbs and the like being 3D printed these days...but in some ways it's good because they are helping people who need prosthetics! http://www.designnews.com/author.asp?section_id=1386&doc_id=263240

Cost would directly rely on the type of material used in printing. Is there any information on what type of materials can be used or not?

3D Printing Tipping Point

Is cost the primary tipping point question for 3D printing to reach the next level in terms of volume/growth?

It's easy to envision printing 3D toys becoming one area where 3D printing could realize the benefits of a very high volume application. Could be a factor in dramatic expansion from the current growth rate.

Aluminum pallets sound like a good idea. Anyone who's ever had to work with woodn pallets in a factory knows about the nails that can scratch your arm and the wood splinters that can get caught in your hands.

It's been two years since the Mac Mini's last appearance on iFixit's teardown table, but a newly revised version joins Apple's lineup this week.
More often than not, with the purchase of a sports car comes the sacrifice of any sort of utility. In other words, you can forget about a large trunk, extra seats for the kids, and more importantly driving in snowy (or inclement) weather. But what if there was a vehicle that offered the best of both worlds; great handling and practicality?
Kevin Gautier of Formlabs describes the making of a carbon fiber mold for an intake manifold, using a $3,300 3D printer, during Medical Design & Manufacturing Midwest.
Science fiction author Isaac Asimov may have the best rules for effective brainstorming and creativity. His never-before-published essay, "On Creativity," recently made it to the Web pages of MIT Technology Review.
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.
