    Unless we're talking really, really, really high-resolution 3-D printing, I don't get "pharmaceuticals" ;)

    OK, 3-D printing nanobots. That's very cool!

    As long as they're friendly nanobots, that is ;)

    amazing stuff really.

    and to think we went from horses 100 years ago to this.

    machines that think are just around the corner.
    quantum computing, nanotechnology, and breakthrough in DNA research will soon allow us to manipulate matter at the smallest level.

    if we could only find clean and renewable sources of energy to power all this...

    A cool little model spaceship doesn't worry me. At least not until they are shrinking humans to fit inside it and injecting people with those things. Machines that think? More genetic manipulations? Fun and games until someone screws up (and you know they will) and next thing we know our smart genetic manipulation machines are modifying us to fit into some kind of renewable energy producing structures ;)

    Ha ha :)

    Machines used solar power until humans blocked the Sun.

    But that "human battery" thing has always struck me as dumb.
