A few weeks ago at a Maker meetup I was talking with a friend about how to become truly viable, 3D printing would have to become user friendly for the consumer.  People these days just want things that work without much hassle.
M3D is making a bid to bring 3D printing to everyday consumers. Today the company is introducing the Micro, a product it claims to be the world’s "first truly consumer 3D printer." The Micro...

I still consider the idea of talking all of your hardware a bit weird.  Then again a decade ago most of us would have considered it quite strange to think of people walking around staring at their phones constantly.

This combination of DIY and 3D printing is bringing affordable prosthetics to many people.  And the 3D files are available free online, for anyone to download and use.  "But we can see there have now been over 143,000 downloads of the software. People all over the world are doing this without us."

This, combined with developments in artificial muscles, fusion energy, and robotics means one day we will be piloting our own Gundams.

"The implications of this study for the entire field are quite profound and we can now envision a day where epidural stimulation might be part of a cocktail of therapies used to treat paralysis," noted co-author Susan Hawley.
After receiving an implant that electrically stimulates the spinal cord, four paraplegic men can now voluntarily move their previously paralyzed legs. It's a breakthrough that's poised to revolutionize the treatment of paralysis.

Humans, they warn, seem to be developing digital brains with new circuits for skimming through the torrent of information online. This alternative way of reading is competing with traditional deep reading circuitry developed over several millennia.
