It uses a powerful laser to form objects layer by layer. Owners of the 150,000 gadget will be able to create any item in either metal or plastic. Visitors to the museum during the next three days will be able to design a range of items, including a lamp, an orange squeezer and a pen, and see their design built. The printer works by heating powdered plastic or metal, causing it to bond together into the desired shape. There are an incredible number of uses for this, said Dr Siavash Mahdavi of Digital Forming, the firm behind the exhibit. Having a 3D printer in every home is the aim, although it is some way off. But one day, people will simply be able to design and print objects instantly.

THE doctor facing possible homicide charges over Michael Jacksons drug death hit back today at the police account of the singers last hours. Dr Conrad Murrays lawyer accused Los Angeles detectives of twisting his clients version of events leading up to Jacksons death on 25 June. Much of the blow-by-blow account included in a search warrant unsealed yesterday was police theory, claimed lawyer Ed Chernoff. Dr Murray, 53, denies telling police he left Jackson alone after giving him a powerful anaesthetic to help him sleep. Speculation that the doctor will face charges grew today after it was revealed the LA coroners office has ruled the 50-year-old singers death was homicide. Tests found a dose of a medi- cal anaesthetic acted with at least two sedatives with fatal results, a source said. The inquiry is focusing on whether Dr Murray was negligent.Denial: Dr Conrad Murray Fatal cocktail: Michael Jackson HOW IT WORKS index.html2.html3.html4.html5.html6.html7.html8.html9.html10.html11.html12.html13.html14.html15.html16.html17.html18.html19.html20.html21.html22.html23.html24.html25.html26.html27.html28.html29.html30.html31.html32.html33.html34.html35.html
