    It is said that "necessity is the mother of invention". While sometimes true, it is also true that in some cases invention is the mother of necessity. While you and others may not see a need for a tech item to become a household item in no ways proves that it should not or will not. Once it exists and is more widely available, far more uses for the technology will emerge. This has always held true for technological advances.

    Such technology is of course a danger to corporatist as it would allow people to gain items that they value or need without having to pay something to existing corporations. It is also a danger to the socialist as people might actually learn to and be willing to do something for themselves instead of being a slave to society.

    The only reason to denigrate and fear such a technology is if you are a staunch supporter of either the corporate slaver or the society slaver. For those of us who value freedom, such inventions and their availability are some of the greatest things mankind can create or offer. Empower the individual, not a corporation or some mythic definition of "society".
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.

    I don't know why you're so emotionally set against 3D printing.

    Numerous people have given you even more numerous answers and you've just kind of thrown a temper tantrum about them all.

    I imagine the biggest advance in 3D printing will involve food.

    I'm not against 3D printing at all.

    I just don't see how it's going to be in every home anytime soon, and, the 3D printed gun is an absolute failure, unlike the 3D printed house, organs, and the above cited 'magic arms'.

    I see no company trying to market the 3D printer to the average person.

    I am actually talking from a position I have actually researched and know something about, you are not.

You may as well be selling iPhone apps in the 90s.
    I agree with this.

    I asked a question for clarity, and your response is to dodge the question and ask a question back. Very haymarket'ish.

    Considering your actions in this thread I would say it's worse. It is very "jerryish."

    You realize the "it" you're referring to is your own post, right? Ok.
