    On a more practical note, is it possible to print a printing press on it? Or decent stamps? Cause yeah, printing books is awesome, but there should be some way to scale a reprap better than a printer.

    @Brian: That’s an interesting question. I bet you could design a printable printing press. Perhaps using http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3669 as a starting point?

    At HAR2009 we’ve printed coins and police cuff keys… (tested the coin to work but didn’t use it to ruin the great festival)

    Oh, and perhaps printing MORE 3D printers is ultimately the thing that has the most impact on subverting traditional industries that don’t have the culture to reinvent themselves. Bad luck for them, good luck for the rest of society. Plus, subverting consumerism and getting people to interact, that’s prone to change things dramatically!
