If there were an award for Emerging Gadget Most Likely to Change Everything, it might well go to the 3D printer. These devices, which turn digital blueprints into physical objects made out of plastic or other materials, are getting better, simpler and cheaper at such a dizzying pace that it’s not hard to imagine a future in which they’re as pervasive as PCs. Already, you can buy a basic desktop model for under $500.

James Evans's insight:

1. Productive markets - more posibilities of market use. e.g. creating personilized unique souvenirs cheaply. 

2. Drives innovation - cheap, quick and accurate prototypes.

3. Health - possibilities in printing live cells. Printing more accurate, unique replacement joints in the hospital cheaply.

4. Allows you to be your own producer. It's empowering.

5. Printing can be done almost anywhere. Where big machines cannot be brought, or products cannot be easily shipped, 3d printer can make.

Those with their fingers on the pulse of the hot geek trends will already know a lot about 3D printing and all it has to offer, but the expense of burning through so much costly plastic can be off-putting.

Via Michael Dunham
James Evans's insight:

1. Reduced waste

2. Created products can be melted down to be used as materials again.
3. Reducing costs.
4. Can retry designs from same materials.
