Some Assembly Required

Mike Treder: CNN is running a story about "RepRap," a type of self-replicating rapid prototyping machine.

Perhaps the greatest benefit from RepRap will be to prepare the way for nanofactory technology. If some of the issues that concern CRN -- such as intellectual property, manufacture of dangerous objects, distribution of opportunity, design sharing, and others -- are raised by this project, that will be quite hepful.
