The following was taken from recent postings about RP and soldiers. Since I
have not seen the movie I can only surmise that a war was fought with small

Taking the idea that anyone could purchase a 'RP' System and "manufacture"
anything with it then I can surmise that the next war could be fought with
RP weapons. Interesting assumptions when you think of the wide effects of
such a conflict; millions of armies against millions of weapons some of
which the individual would have no defense.

from my home I could design and make weapons that could cause vast damage.
Given the above quotes, my imagination can produce many scenarios but I
will not give out details since I may have to defend myself.

Rather than 'Star Wars' the next trilogy will be " Rapid Wars" starring 3D
Systems, Helisys, Stratasys, and Z-Corp. The plot will be how to get from
'Small Soldiers' to "Life Size Soldiers" in seconds. Luke SkyWalker is
known as Luke RapidMaker.

How many government agencies worldwide actually own a RP system? Anyone
know or venture to guess?

Anyone want to help me write the screen play?
