3D printing goodness for all

The prospects of three dimensional printing and rapid prototyping just got a whole lot more interesting with the Fab@home desktop 3D printer / rapid prototyping kit. An article on the fabricator in New Scientist is a good introduction. I could see this tech evolving into a toy... how great would it be to design your own Matchbox cars, for instance?

On a slightly different scale the Contour Crafting project of the University of Southern California is developing tech to build / 3D print whole houses robotically. Check out this Times article, and have a look at the videos on the Contour Crafting site.
