This is the “Thing-O-Matic” by MakerBot Industries and its quite amazing. In a sense the Thing-O-Matic acts as a 3-D copy/fax machine. users can choose to either scan their own objects or upload from a Thingiverse of pre-scanned objects. The end result is an exact replica of the scanned object made from ABS, the same material used to produce LEGOs.
Think about what you could do with this technology. Ever break a small plastic something or other? Yeah, thought so. Now you could just make a new one! Lost game pieces, shower curtain rings, mechanical parts, anything you can think of or download!
Probably the most amazing aspect is the price tag. The Thing-O-Matic clocks in at just under $1300. Shockingly cheap for what it can do.
