Many people think that 3D printing is a timely hype. Yes, it’s new, it’s interesting, but from what most of us have seen – it’s nothing revolutionary.

Organs haven’t had big success and guns.. well, I don’t think we need more weapons, especially so easily obtained ones. But a Chinese company is trying something else.
