    THis looks amazing!!

    Still far too expensive for a home purchase but would be cool to have one to mess about with

    yeah still too expensive, but they are getting there fast.

    Once they break the £1000 mark I think we will see them popping up all over the place.

    I'm not eager to have one at home (although it would be cool if I had one) but being able to take your own 3D designs on a memory stick to a store and have them "printed" for you would be pretty awesome. Like how you can take your photos to Tesco and stand in the entrance getting them printed right there. I can see a market for that in time.

    Totally awesome, imagine "printing" your next Warhammer 40K / aircraft model kit yourself.

    Or print yourself a new laptop screen hinge, mind you resin isn't going to be strong enough to hold a LCD assembly.

    You wouldn't print yourself a car...

    Could see this as being great fun for designing and "printing" your own warhammer figures! Now if only it were more affordable!!!
