3D printing...on ice!

from gammon's article in wired :: "Why ice? Well, it’s cheap and readily available, and low-cost ice models could help inventors design products more quickly. The challenge of printing with ice, besides the very cold temps necessary for the process, was building a machine that’s up to the task." :: crazy :: crazy...COOL :: (via boing boing)

So fantastic!!! Sometimes living in the future is REALLY EXCITING and every article I read about 3D printers makes me feel that way. ICE PROTOTYPES! It's brilliant.
