Not A Dumb Gun....

a: 3-d printing ~
b: a very smart glue gun

What: I was at the Sunnyvale library. They displayed some of the objects that could be made with the device that they had purchased through a grant. The Librarian said it cost about $2000. Not bad. She showed me the feeder material which is a long spool of plastic(PLA). It looked like a huge spool of very thick pink fishing line. This spool of plastic gets fed into the device the way a cylinder of glue gets fed into a glue gun. Except in this case the glue gun is a head which can be manipulated like a precision tool.
