The latest CES brought us a whole slew of 3D printers, including the Makerbot, which will launch a "mini" variant this year for under $1,500. 3D printers have been sitting on the edges of the cultural consciousness for a couple of years now, but they've been regarded as largely theoretical.
There is a lot of worrying about 3D printed guns, for instance, there is a lot of talk on the impact that it will have on shipping and transport industries, but not everyone in these industries is taking the time to adjust for the coming future of instant-access to consumer goods.
"Even as 3D printing affects the job market, what we're looking at is an invention that is going to drive the cost of everything down, and keep driving it down until we get closer and closer to 'free' as the base cost for everything, so it's hard to be cynical about the promise of 3D printing," said Internet entrepreneur Jason Hope.
