RepRap -- A self-replicating machine

A robot that can build itself: RepRap, a machine that can replicate itself by using rapid prototyping: manufacturing objects under the control of a computer, has been demonstrated recently. The machine is distributed under the GNU General Public Licence and a kit with all components needed to assemble it is available.

What is RepRap?

Look at your computer setup and imagine that you hooked up a 3D
printer. Instead of printing on bits of paper this 3D printer makes
real, robust, mechanical parts. To give you an idea of how robust,
think Lego bricks and you're in the right area. You could make lots of useful stuff, but interestingly you could also make most of the parts to make another 3D printer. That would be a machine that could copy itself.
