Use your phone / tablet as a 3D printer?!

This 3D Printer concept uses your smartphone or tablet as the light source to cure photo-resins.

Virtually silent, runs off 4 x AA batteries.

And the best bit?

It's only $99 for the printer (build volume: 76 mm x 128 mm x 52 mm; vertical build rate of about 10 mm/hour or so), and $15 for a 100 mL bottle of resin (a range of hard and flexible resins available); prints with virtually no waste.

I want one!

It sounds too good to be true - I'll believe this is a real thing when I see one actually working.

(But to quote “The X-Files”: I want to believe!)
