LaserWriter Pro 630

3D Printers are already starting to revolutionize the world and have been a big element is many of the sci-fi books of my youth.

Wondering how long before you have your very own 3D Printer?  Think about this:  a good 3D Printer today is about the same cost as a laser printer was in 1985.

“When the The Apple LaserWriter first hit the mass market in 1985, the desktop publishing revolution was born. With a starting price of $6995 the unit weighed a hefty 77 lb (35kg) and was 11.5 x 18.5 x 16.2 inches”

Sweet!
