Just print up a friend

Do you think this 3D printing is as smoking as I do?

I saw a documentary about a comedian who "prints" his own ventriloquist dummies.

This involves loading in resins that are laid down in thin layers until a three-dimensional object gradually is created. I have heard this could even stymie gun control--no background check if you are building your own gun in the basement.

Check out http://inmoov.blogspot.com. French artist Gael Langevin posts printer instructions for a robot he is building. You can download these open source files and build your own.

Is this creativity? Or magic? Wow--so neat.
