3D Printers Will Cost Less Than A PC by 2016?

Industry analysts are predicting that 3D printers will be cheaper than a PC in the next few years. Just imagine how cool it would be if 3D printers were actually that affordable.

Widespread adoption of 3D printing technology may not be that far away, according to a Gartner report predicting that enterprise-class 3D printers will be available for less than $2,000 by 2016. With the technology set to become less expensive than some modern-day PCs, Gartner research director Pete Basiliere says the futuristic capabilities of 3D printers could be available far sooner than many had thought.
