3D Object-Printing Kiosks On Future Street Corners

The Belgium-based design studio Unfold has created a prototype of what will soon be ubiquitous in urban environs, an object piracy cart:

Kiosk is a project that explores a near future scenario in which digital fabricators are so ubiquitous, that we see them appear on street corners, just like fast food today is sold in NY style mobile food stalls. A place where you can quickly get a custom made fix for your broken shoe, materialise an illegal download of Starck’s Juicy Salif orange squeezer that you modified for better performance or quickly print out a present for your sister’s birthday.

    But if we all get them in our garages, why will we need street venders?
