I have a colleague who researches 3D printing. She made coffee cups by 3D printing in ceramic.

I saw one of these built with a beagleboard single board computer.  Nifty idea.  Beagleboards are a lot of fun.

Dibs on the scanning part!

I saw this a while back (if it's the same video I think it is, I haven't clicked the link above) and the printer is only $28K...the scanner is another $28K.
