Tech Tuesday: Solidoodle Press 3-D printer

Saw this article over on Engadget and was awed at how home-friendly this 3-D printer was.  Imagine printing your own kitchen utensils, bicycle parts or even personal usb fan! I can imagine there are more uses, such as home medical uses, hobbyists-model airplanes, superhero models, maybe pet toys and so forth.
