Researchers at Ga Tech have developed inks that you can put into your conventional inkjet printer and create conductive traces. Your PCB can be made of paper if you like. Here's the link: GA Tech Develops Inkjet-based Circuits

Some folks out of China have done something similar.

This is the first effort at commercializing the technique that I have heard of, though. There may be more coming out at the forthcoming Printed Electronics Conference.

But in answer to your question, yes. I would love one. I hate trying to etch PCB boards at home.
