|Another great free Museum|
That Design is so important to our industrial future was made clear to me when I was at the Science Museum (free entry) recently) it's amazing how lovely some of the items look as well as being functional.
In addition to the historic bits I was very excited to see how 3D printing is moving into the mainstream not only were there examples of the technology in the halls but there was a printer for sale in the shop (£1,790)
It seems a bit like science fiction already but imagine if you could print a Messerschmitt bubble car (or other bits and pieces) there seems to be questions about if its better environmentally to produce in bulk in a factory or to make locally and avoid much of the transport overhead.

|You can buy the 3D printer in the Science Museum shop|
|Be great to print this|
|Odd that this sort of printer was in use until the 1960's|
