Harvard Business School graduate Grace Choi made waves at a recent Tech Crunch Disrupt conference where she demonstrated that she could print "a wearable color cosmetic."

By using regular printer ink and 3-D printer technology, Choi has created a printer that she calls "Mink" hoping to bring accessibility and affordability to all cosmetic colors.

"The little printer lets users choose any color on the web, or in the real world, and using simple already-existing software, print that color into a blush, eye shadow, lip gloss or any other type of makeup," Tech Crunch's Alyson Shontell wrote about Choi's printer.

"With Mink, users can satisfy the desire for instant gratification while still having access to any color in the world at an affordable price."

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.
