Crystal ball gazers

Abstract:
Kurzweil also has a bold vision for the future of computer technology. Instead of shopping for food, clothes and other products, consumers could one day use a computerized device to assemble the items from molecules, he said. The device would follow an electronic blueprint to make the product. Nanotechnology could make this possible in 15 to 20 years, he said.

"It won't just be music and movies that are information files," he said. "We'll be able to take an information file and print out a blouse or a meal."
