The folks at Engadget spotted the elusive Form 1 resin-based personal 3D printer in the wild at London’s 3D Printshow and managed to capture a short video of it in action. 
In the video you can see the machine’s laser fusing each layer of an exquisite 3D print, slowly emerging from the photo-curable resin. There’s also a brief tour and explanation around the finishing process for Form 1 prints: you must first bath the object in isopropyl alcohol, and then rinse that off in a second bath of water before your print is considered complete.
