I'm very excited about the whole idea of 3D printing and seeing stories like this just makes it look even better. A fellow space enthusiast has managed to successfully print a working flight computer for the Kerbal Space Program flight simulator. Based on the Apollo program's DSKY computer, the 3D printed version lights up, shows digital display read outs and plugs into the (brilliant) creator's PC using standard USB. This news article on Kotaku also has some great 'work in progress' shots of the computer being built. It might take me a little while before I've gotten over how good this all is!
