Reduced Carbon Footprint Souvenirs, via 3D Printing

I saw a link to this on the Ponoko blog - conceptual design from designer Héctor Serrano - someday when you travel, say, to London, instead of buying a worthless trinket there that was imported from China, and taking it back to Los Angeles, you might email a customized souvenir to be printed locally. You can do it today with Ponoko for laser-cut parts. However, you wouldn't want an SLA printer in your house, even if you could afford it. Maybe in the garage.
