    Open Source Hardware!

    If you can, help others; if you cannot do that, at least do not harm them.

    Amazing!
    When I read the title, I thought you're referring to Open Source electronics (like Arduino for example). But anyway, that's also interesting. Still the 3D printers are rather expensive, but not as expensive as the were 4-5 years ago.
    I read somewhere that nowadays even some of the big car manufacturers produce car parts this way - with 3D printing. Not all of the parts, but still this is going mainstream

    In other news, Canonical has released its first open source hardware: VGA Switch
    What an exciting year! I would buy that printer without a doubt if I had the resources.
