Needed: 3D auto parts
I think HP is onto something with the Multi Jet Fusion. A simple example: an auto repair shop needs an odd part for a make, whose parts it doesn't stock. Instead of setting up a delivery, it gets a prescription for what metals it needs to stock its 3D printer with and a 3D diagram of the part. The printer goes to work and the car is repaired on the day it's brought in, no delays, no problem. A particular metal might need to be delivered from a nearby distributor, but not the finished part. The finished part is delivered electronically.

Re: Sprout
This looks cool and it reminds me about Intel's Perceptual Computing

Yes, you're right. It does look like Perceptual Computing, but according of what I read, it has been replaced by the new Intel RealSense. Pretty amazing as well.

Re: Sprout
This looks cool and it reminds me about Intel's Perceptual Computing. However, I will still watch it out for sometime instead of buying one. At this moment I do not have work item that demands this super capability yet.:-)

Re: App possibilities
Laurianne could not agree more... I would like to say - HP does create interesting products and if using right marketing and hype... could give good run for it money to Apple and Microsoft... and other pc makers... but will HP do it???

Re: Not a bad move after the break up
@Michael Endler I still remember days when HP trying to enter PDA market and created perfect phone pda Ipaq H5550 well ahead of it time... but after drop it... I keep using my Ipaq H5550 until end of 2013... HP could create perfect product... but what after... like Web OS on HP Touchpad....

it not like Apple keep using and reusing same idea over and over again riding wave...

I could be wrong... but history will tell :)

Sprout
The HP Sprout looks like an amazing machine. It's already on sale for almost 2 grand. Not bad for people who really need something like that.

Re: App possibilities
Maybe the focus and motion detection become difficult if the Illuminator is mounted at different distances, which would happen with peripherals on varied computer models. I suppose there's also some advantage to be able to guarantee certain hardware capabilities to developers writing Sprout apps.
