Gizmag. I think this is really cool. It could result in some truly unique and one of a kind vehicles.

I wonder if one could print replacement panels for the Smart Fortwo to make it quite different looking?

Very cool. With a flick of a Wacom tablet, and the push of a key board button. You can have a new vehicle, body. We had a small proto type printer at work. I was so neat how you could make complete working parts.

I really surprise, with smarts plastic panel. They didn't do more with the styling over the years.

Smart Car Kits. Perhaps create real life versions of these?
