Move over sewing machines, 3D printers are coming to take over the industry, according to The New York Times.

"In recent months, 3-D-printed clothes and accessories have shown up on 'Project Runway' ... the actual runway ... and on the Neiman Marcus website," The Times' Steven Kurutz wrote in December.

According to Kurutz, 3-D printers currently use fabrics that are thicker than most consumers would like, but as the technology continues to advance that is sure to change.

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.
