The New Scientist magazine reports that a Cornell University researcher has released a "Fabber" device that you can assemble at home using a soldering iron and a screwdriver using a $2,400 kit. The Fabber can generate 3D objects to your spec using plastic and other materials including play-doh, chocolate and icing!

These types of machines typically cost from $20,000 to $1.5MM and so this $2,400 price could kickstart a personal-computer like revolution in the rapid prototyping marketplace.
