Self Assembling Mini Factory Makes Sandwiches

If you have ever wondered if your 3D printer can make you a sandwich and fold your shirts then you’ll be pleased to know that a team of university researchers have been grappling with this very problem, so you don’t have to.

The researchers have successfully shown the use of 3D printer heads as robotic actuators, as well as using that same print head to print, de-support and assemble components in a production line.

Behold, the Functograph!
