Fabbing = Teleportation

Well, it happened faster than we had anticipated, but there are now people teleporting objects using 3D printing technology. De Zeen Design Magazine has a very interesting post and pictures of emailed objects that have been printed on a 3D printer, thus effectively accomplishing teleportation. We’re not quite sure about the scanning part on the source end, but otherwise we’re getting dangerously close to Star Trek land.

My favorite part of the article is “Reduced Carbon Footprint Souvenirs”, which clearly shows everyone where this technology is headed. When sufficiently capable 3D devices are spread across the globe, we could start to see reductions in freight transportation.

Kerry Stevenson, aka "General Fabb" has written over 8,000 stories on 3D printing at Fabbaloo since he launched the venture in 2007, with an intention to promote and grow the incredible technology of 3D printing across the world. So far, it seems to be working!
