Bestcomputerscienceschools.net has published a nice infographic titled "3D Printing: One Step Closer To A Star Trek Future" to help illustrate the power of 3D printing.

"On the original Star Trek TV series from the 1960s, they had their fictional replicator technology that materialized food, drink and non-edible objects. ... 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."
