3D printing has been in the market for a long time, but the Harvard group has made it possible to transfer images into a 3D print in real space. I hope that this technology will become commercially available soon.

The university is actively trying to license the technology now, so it will probably be several years before commercialization.

This is brilliant. Perhaps it could be broadened to facilitate the construction of 3D versions of objects that are currently rendered only in drawings from multiple viewpoints.

@Colin, this is amazing technology. I would love to print "Angry Birds" using this technology. By when do you think this technology will become commercial ? Can we access this technology only through cloud based provider ?

I recently received an email from someone we'll call Martin (because that's his name). Martin's message was short and sweet. In its entirety it read: "You need to see this!"
