posted about the upcoming possibilities for 3D printing and rpg miniatures. It's getting interesting fast. Imagine you walk into a gaming convention, they scan you, and print a miniature to use in the games while you wait. It's coming. The big change here appears to be the commodity scanners with the Kinect. Of course the resolution is still pretty crappy, but that seems like an obvious place for the tech to improve in the next few years. Read the story on Boing Boing, and make sure to follow their links to see a movie of the printer in action.
