RepRap replicates itself

RepRap, the prototype for a autoreplicating (but not self assembling) machine finally is able to build all of its parts.

This is thrilling and possibly a milestone in a future Agalmics history. It is quite reassuring to see these bottom-up efforts to bloom and spread, to be the heralds of a better, decentralized tomorrow, where, as the RepRap motto says, there will be "wealth without money".

Hopefully some day with future versions RepRap or something similar, and with distributed biotech and Open Source protocols for culturing meat and other protein sources, we will be freer from the tyranny of having to sell ourselves in order to survive.
