Yes, we're already seeing it being used to make working test products, AnandY. The next step is small-volume production.

@Anandy: 3D printing has already taken a giant step forward. Its just a matter of when the investors are going to place their trust on this particular item. Since its still on its early days there are lots of things which needs to be addressed and those points will have to be evaluated properly on a regular basis

@ Charles Murray, it is really good to see the pace at which this technology is heading forward. In a matter of just a few years 3-D technology has made its present felt very strongly at such highly esteemed shows. I am sure it will not be long before we witness it moving forward from prototyping to making actual products.

The 3D Face Mask is great! Just what every common criminal needs for next-gen robberies, and just plain old-time yahooing beer from the local convenience store. "Analyze This" camera facial recognition software!

The 3-D printed face is simply awesome. I can understand how it would have made those people who were there have double look at it because it looked so real here in picture as well. At first look it made me feel that someone has actually put his face into some kind of scanning device. It was only after reading the description that I came to know it was a 3-D printed face. Simply brilliant!

Here's the weblink to instructables. The site is awesome and it has cool projects to build like electronic devices, 3D printers, and CNC machines.

I agree. The 3D printer is the gateway to developing an inexpensive dental cam device to disrupt the current expensive units used in the industry. There's an abundance of 3D printers and CNC machine projects that can be found on the instructables website which can be redesigned to implement a dental cam machine at low cost.

To the best of my knowledge, dental cam(cnc) are pretty expensive(say 80000$).but it feels like there's some large opportunity to build a radically inexpensive dental cam and disrupt current players.

I see Dental CAD providing a lot of benefits to third world countries who may not be able to afford traditional treatments. The playing field of 3D printer manufacters is staggering with cost as low as $300 dollars. Also, plans to build your own 3D printers have been open sourced thus making Dental CAD a reality.

Advertised as the "Most Powerful Tablet Under $100," the Kindle Fire HD 6 was too tempting for the team at iFixit to pass up. Join us to find out if inexpensive means cheap, irreparable, or just down right economical. It's teardown time!
The first photos made with a 3D-printed telescope are here and they're not as fuzzy as you might expect. A team from the University of Sheffield beat NASA to the goal. The photos of the Moon were made with a reflecting telescope that cost the research team 100 to make (about $161 US).
At Medical Design & Manufacturing Midwest, Joe Wascow told Design News how Optimal Design prototyped a machine that captures the wing-beat of a duck.
The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
