Dear Yakov,

     I expected to want to see more, but I was surprized that there was no mention
of fabricators in the portion you posted, except perhaps the above part, which
might be referring to the posibility of retailoring your wardrobe on demand, which
would be a fabber-like application. (Clothing are a quasi-2D/quasi-3D kind of
product.) Are there really no more fabber-oriented concepts in the piece?

Best Regards,
Marshall Burns
