Robots that create robots

New enemy alert: The Fabber is a $2,300 home fabrication unit that can "print" 3-D objects.
The inventor wants to be able to "print" robots who can then use the machine to "print" out their own tools.

"Q: What’s the most extreme use you have in mind for this technology?
A: I want a printer to be all we need to send on long-term space explorations. After landing, it would print a robot that could walk out of the printer, batteries included. If the robot discovers a cave that requires a special tool to explore with, it could head back to the printer to make the right gadget. And if the robot breaks, just print another one."

Robots that reproduce...interesting...but will inevitably be our doom.
