Scientists from the University of Bath in England unveiled an open-source machine that acts like a three-dimensional printer. Instead of printing out documents or pictures on paper, this printer uses blueprints to produce 3-D plastic objects.

This is the next step for robots taking over our world. Why do we even try to make these things.

As someone that has dabbled in custom toy making, this has me looking for a price tag. As someone with a brain, it has me shaking my head as the latest over-educated idiot is seeking to put several different vocations out of work.
