The Objet Eden 3D printer is a gadget lovers dream.  It can basically render a drawing in 3D in a few hours.  It’s being used in the film industry as a way to provide filmmakers with a proof of concept drawing in 3D space.  Imagine a printer that can print action figures, or busts right from your PC.

I guess it was used extensively on Iron Man 2, and was even used to create the actual armor that the actors wear.  Check out the video below for more details.  The future is now!  You’ve been printed…
