When Massachusetts Institute of Technology students Jim Bredt and Tim Anderson created the first 3-D printer in 1995 by modifying an inkjet printer so that it would extrude a binding solution on to a bed of powder, instead of ink on paper, they probably had no idea of its tremendous potential.

With the technology being used for everything ranging from school projects to movies to even medicine and food, experts believe that 3-D printing is going to revolutionize the world we live in. To highlight all the amazing things that are being done with a mere 'printer' on October 9th, 2013, the Science Museum in London unveiled a new exhibition. Entitled 3D: Printing the Future, it is free to the public and features everything from toys to lightweight aircraft hinges to even, replacement teeth showing just how versatile and useful, the technology is!
