Submission + - Nanoscale race car gets 3D printed with a laser (geek.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Researchers at the Vienna University of Technology have managed to perfect 3D printing at the nanoscale. What may look like a grain of sand to the human eye, could in fact be a detailed racing car model, reproduction of a famous church, or London Bridge. The 3D printer relies on a laser beam directed by mirrors through a liquid resin on to a surface. It can print at 5 meters per second, which is a world record, and the end result is only a few hundred nanometers in size.

The next hurdle: printing with bio-material so we can start making our own body parts/organs.
