Conventional 3d printers build objects layer upon layer of technology.
With a new method, it has become possible to produce 3d objects that most closely resembles the Star Trek replicator, " says the scientific journal Nature.
" this is an exciting step forward in order to rapidly develop prototypes of small and transparent parts, said chemist Joseph DeSimone at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, to the journal.
In Star Trek used replikatorn to create and recycle objects, everything from a guitar to a cup of tea, by preparing the molecules from their molekyllager.
Researchers have worked for years to produce a real variation.
A research team at the University of California, Berkeley has come a long way.
