Science Fiction fans often feel that they have been promised a lot and little has been delivered with teleportation, flying cars, robots to clean the house and decent tasting microwave meals all long past due according to sci-fi films and TV programs of the 50’s and 60’s. People may be interested to know then that one of the more fantastic seeming technologies has become a reality: replicators. The idea of a replicator is that you can make an exact replica of any item. The process takes a little longer than in an episode of Star Trek where all it took was a quick zap and this replicator technology is actually two technologies. 3D scanning services and 3D printing services are used along with some clever technicians and clever software which are also required but the potential for this technology is massive.
