The rise of 3-D printing technology, or the ability to manufacture products simply by automating their construction through computer programming, has continued to produce a wide array of functional products.

The potential of 3-D printing has expanded to include items few ever dreamed could be created through automized production.

Here, we've compiled a list of 10 products that have now been successfully produced using 3-D printers. To help explain the phenomenon, we've also included the video above by the folks over at Mashable explaining the details of how, exactly, 3-D printing works.

I can't imagine what might be possible with this. But the housing sounds like a wonderful use of it! Think of all the people who don't have homes who could afford them.

If it ever gets to the point where these printers can print things out of metal, the government would have to ban the printers or any gun ban would not be effective.
