MakerBot Replicator

This is impressive 3D printer unveiled at this years CES(Consumer Electronics Show) where it won an award for Best in the Emerging Tech category. It was created by MakerBot a company based in Brooklyn, NY.  

What makes it different from other 3D printers is it can print objects in multiple colors and potentially different materials. It does so by using a dual-extruder attachment, that can switch back and forth to whatever color is programmed to print. This  paves the way for us to print exact replicas of items possibly down to the original items material.
