Someone's making a 3D printer that deposits granulated sugar:

Also,

[email protected] is selling kits for $2,850.00, or $400.00 for just the acrylic bits.

Well, for that much, people will be getting a complete RepRap kit. I'm
warming to the idea of shipping those.

Do you mean to sell RepRap kits, or are you talking about building loaner
machines? Your email is ambiguous.

I've been daydreaming about an installation piece in a modern art museum,
start out with 16 repraps, end up with 256. Then send off 64 repraps to
other museums, and farm out the others as loaner machines to art schools,
hobby robotics groups, and people signed up for a loaner machine, etc. Maybe
the Tate or something. It might be a bit too high concept, or maybe
insufficiently high concept.

I love that idea. And I know quite a few people highish up in the UK art world
(they all rate RepRap, incidentally). When we're a little further down the
road, I might suggest to one of them that we all collaborate on such an
installation. We might even get a grant...
