3D printers coming, thanks to heat-sensitive paper.

Physicists in Israel have made an important discovery, one which will keep kids (and acid-trippers) amused and ink cartridges dry for a very long time. By heating special paper to 33*C, Israeli physicists have managed to manipulate the paper into 3-dimensional designs such as sombreros. There is no word as to when we can expect to see this technology out for consumer use.Source: Engadget

They'll be amused as long as they have the cash to keep buying that "special paper"... which would probably cost a small fortune.

Interesting news though :D
