I toured the Orion project building at KSC between the STS-135 launch  
and landing.  I got to see two of the large format 3D printers they  
were using to make items to use in their proof of concept simulators.   
I was more interested in the printers than the demonstrations they  
were staging for us.

They "print" stuff, then make sure someone can actually install it.   
Pretty cool.

The balls on their clothing getting turned into motion studies was  
pretty cool too.

I had no idea Orion was so far along.  They will reach the ISS very  
soon with cargo delivery, and may be taking people as early as 2013.
