Infographic: 3D Printing, One Step Closer to a Star Trek Future?

Again, in honor of Annual Mathematics Awareness Month, we have an infographic published by Best Computer Science schools to help illustrate the power of 3D printing, especially in the math classroom.
“On the original Star Trek TV series from the 1960s, they had their fictional replicator technology that materialized food, drink and non-edible objects. Well…now 3D printing is turning fiction into fact. There’s even a 3D printer by MakerBot Industries called the Replicator. Okay, we’re not quite at the Star Trek level yet, but the number of objects we can ‘print’ is quickly growing, and the list includes useful things such as human organs, limbs and even synthetic food including pizza.”
