Great for replacing lost buttons

This falls a bit short of the Star Trek transporter. But, it's pretty neat anyways. The Eden250 is a 3-dimensional printing system used to create 3D prototypes with jaw-dropping detail. In fact, it has been used to create skull and jawbone structures for surgical reconstruction.

This smaller unit can make a model in an area that is roughly a 9 inch cube by curing small squirts of plastic resin with UV light.

The technology has been around a little over ten years, but not at this price. Used to cost $200,000. Today its yours for $19,000.
