Museums like these are efforts to show and educate people about the face of technology in modern times. Through this education they will be able to implement the newly learned ideas into their own business (like using 3D printing) and help promote technology. The type that binds user and technology together is needed.

Prabhakar, 

"Whatever be the case, the good innovations cannot be stopped just because there could be some misuse of the same good technology . . ."

Exactly. I completely agree with you. Bad people with evil minds will always exist in the world, not for that progress has to stop.

That article posted by Wale collaborates what I said about "devil" minds misusing some good technology for evil purpose.

Whatever be the case, the good innovations cannot be stopped just because there could be some misuse of the same good technology which could be a boon for most of the community and 3D printing is such new technology useful for rapid prototyping and even for pilot production runs in some cases.

Wale, 

Thanks so much for that link. The 3D printer they were using is like the one I saw, the Replicator 2 that is in the slideshow.

Prabhakar, 

No, that's not what I meant. :( I didn't think it included me, but that it included you. And I know how you have used it, and what you implied, but I only wanted to say what I think of the use of "we" for generalizations. This is simply because I don't agree with generalizing. Don't worry about this, it's just me. :) 

I am reading the article that Wale posted below. You need to read it, and watch the video. Here: http://uk.news.yahoo.com/police-first-3d-gun-printing-factory-010626400.html?vp=1#1nTlSom

Susan,

 

Sorry to have used the word "We" implying you also part of the gun making idea.

I was only discussing it in a theroretical angle and no practical experiment implied.

"We" all are peace loving people but "We" always dread about  what "devil" minds could do with the new inventions created by "Us " for some good puprose, like those high resolution 2D color printers being used to print fake currency notes.

Hailey, 

I loved to see so many kids there doing their research, and exploring everything. As the boy with little shark told me "the process could be faster." What this means is that these kids are already getting involved into thinking what can be improved; in just a few years' time they could be the ones advancing these technologies at the speed of the light, because that's what they are asking for now.

I am always fascinated when I find kids in these events. I always talk to with them, and every time I am fascinated with the level of conversation you can have with them when the topic is technology. In the Museum of Computing in Cambridge I also talked quite a lot with a kid. He knew a lot about programming, and as you could use all the machines in the exhibition he was using one of the old ones (from the 90s) to show me how they used to program in those days. I loved it. :)

Nimantha, 

Some people prefer to pay more for something illegal if that will keep them anonymous. I now wonder about how to recycle these things. Maybe they can be just melted. If that is possible if they can easily get rid of the evidence think how much easier crime would be.
