    Old vid, but still interesting. Thing is, what is needed is bigger and cheaper, not smaller! Unless he can get it to output layer by layer out of the machine and be limited only on 2 axis instead of 3. (4, depending on the material!)

    "Can it print a 3d printer?"

    A Von Neumann Self-replicating machine will probably be developed very soon. Biology does it all the time. :)
