Are 3D scanners the obvious next must have new technology?

ffbc448f3213d4f9cdfb79d87568e23a_largeWith all the excitement over 3D printing, did we overlook the obvious accessory? Well, I may have but CADScan from Kickstarter.com sure didn’t. They have a prototype 3D scanner that works as you would imagine. Simply drop in the object you want to copy and it scans it into a 3D CAD file that you can then alter, or print. I think this takes us one step closer to being able to make things in our homes or jobs, and possibly one more legal morass for the lawyers to wade through. Either way its a needed step toward universal 3D printing.
