Hospice,

Amazon and Ebay are pushing effective 3D Printing Solutions today on their Sites.

With the Big Two in the E-Commerce space behind it,The Sky is very much the limit as things go today.

Have you seen watch kind of Stuff Amazon is pitching today on their website?

http://www.amazon.com/b?node=8323871011

A significant degree of the stuff there would most definitely put major Toy-makers out of Business(for starters).

Phenomenal!

Nimantha,

Are you not following the latest?

Amazon and Ebay have both launched 3D Printing Centres.

This is just the kind of fillip this Technology needs today.

Adenji,

That's a fair statement to make.

However,when you do realize the Funding Constraints that most Countries face Globally;it becomes beyond obvious that they will need to Cooperate in Spaces where they have a Common Interest today.

I have seen even Countries colloborate quite effectively with Militiary tech Development today for instance the Brahmos Missile or the PAK-FA Fighter Jet or the F-35 Jet too.

I am sure it can be done in Space quite effectively also.

Recently,I was following India's Space Developments very closely and they have now become the Lowest Cost Satellite Launcher in the World (with extremely Quality results as well).

A good number of European,Asian and African Countries now launch with them which earns them Valuable Foriegn Exchange in the process as well.

Is this not an example of Cooperation?

3D printing has the potential and has gone a long way for this short period.

@prabhakar: Well 3D printing is being used by many right now and has the potential to grow but it does need some push from one or two big companies just like cloud services.

Well going beyond the limit is ok on certain things but there are areas where you should limit to boundaries.

@Kayode: Yes there are many things which needs to be considered. Not sure if everything has to be considered at this point but at some point it has to be

I agree with you on that, and is that not the reason we called it " space" . But so many factors would determine if countries or Nations collaborate and take the advantage of the space. One is a common interest, another is cost and the list goes on

Good comment prabhakar, I agree with you on that. The space may still hold some mysteries but its not as mysterious as it used to be in time past and this has been because of both successes and failures in time past.
