A 3D desktop printer, bought online from Amazon, delivered to my door, for under $1000.

It's only a matter of time now.  The cost of the printers will come down and down, and building your own widgets will be commonplace.  We won't buy a cell phone case..... we'll subscribe to a data service and buy the build software, making a new case every week.... or every day..... as whim and style dictate.

In a year. Amazon will have a subsection of 3d printer files, and they will be included with the Prime membership, like Android apps.

The patents for selective laser sintering are expiring. This will open even more possibilities for low cost production of metal parts.
