    Won't someone think of the trees? (mind you, the time it must take to print you could probably grow a few in the meantime..)

    Shame its only paper or there could have been some nice modding potential introduced by this, paper+computer does not sound like a good idea...

    you can grow more trees, you can't grow more plastic (well alright you can but its then competing for food and fuel planting space). Most if not all paper now comes from managed tree stock, i.e. plant to replace the ones being cut down, else they'd go out of business.

    It's crazy to think that within 20 years most of us will have a 3D printer in the home, and instead of buying a bit of piping from Wickes, or HDD rails from SCAN, we will be downloading the blue print and printing the parts ourselves.... now for the noverboard I was promised in back to the future...
