the part that hurts my head is all of the stuff that we don't know about that will be invented.

Don't get me wrong I love technology and change is usually always for the better. The question is really if mankind is ready for whatever new technologies are dropped into our lap

I think our growing understanding of science and the universe is equally fascinating and beneficial.

try to imagine a world without technology.  now, imagine a world with endless ideas and creativity.  now, imagine a world with some technology (not a lot, not a little) and with a medium amount of ideas and creativity.  imagine living in a world with no borders (geographic, socioeconomic, linguistic).  imagine the movement of information real time and the impacts of the borderless world developing at an unprecedented rate.

this data will be data for the world.

3d printing is going to be as big as the internet and probably at least as much if not more disruptive to the overall economy.  I would guess we're probably about 20 years or so away from it being mainstream.  imagine not ever having to order anything or go to a store to buy anything ever again.  you just download the plans and print it.

mind.

blown.

3D printing is pretty mind blowing.

I'm sure this is luked, but its still pretty cool:

Price of 1 gigabyte:
1981 - $300,000
1987 - $50,000
1990 - $10,000
1994 - $1,000
1997 - $100
2000 - $10
2004 - $1
2012 - $0.10

I really need to research this 3D printing thing, it sounds awesome. But would I have to assemble the product or does it print it fully assembled?

I was using 3d printing at KSU back in 2001. old hat, folks!

But I think the medical implications will probably be bigger than home applications. BUT I COULD BE REALLY WRONG AND THAT'S AWESOME!!!

3d printing can make fully functioning "things" inside a case.  for example, puppeteers can use them to make doll heads, where all the moving parts are inside the head, but you can't access the inside at all (without cutting it open).  jay leno uses one to replace impossible to find engine parts on his old cars.  the uses right now are still pretty basic, but the potential is pretty great.
