It comes with 95ml of resin in one of three colours. The downside is that these rewards won&rsquo;t be available until April 2015.

Sounds like the great basis for a classic movie!</p> <p>Warner Bros. is the studio currently in negotiations to bring Temple Run’s epic running around to cinemas. The film will reportedly follow an explorer that is chased by demonic forces after taking an idol from a temple. Can’t wait… Oh hang on. We can wait.

No. The EX1 has been forged by Cartesian Co. not to print out last minute anniversary cards, but to&nbsp;print out circuits.</p> <p>Yep. As in, electronic circuit boards. On paper. Or on plenty of other materials in fact.</p> <p>The EX1 does away with the hassle of etching a PCB and instead uses two inkjet cartridges which lay down two different chemicals which, when combined, create conductive silver nano particles.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/users/esat-dedezade" title="View user profile.">Esat Dedezade</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Print on all the things </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Materials that can be printed on include plastic, glass, ceramic, wood, silicon, fabric and paper – opening up a whole world of possibilities if you've got the imagination to go with it.</p> <p>And if you don't want to solder the circuits, conductive glue will work just as well. Cartesian Co. promises that users won't be gouged for refills like existing standard printer ink cartridges and the whole package is wrapped up in a printer that weighs no more than 6kg.</p> <p>At the time of writing, the cheapest Kickstarter package available is US$1,200, plus an extra US$500 if you want the printer assembled for you, so <a href="http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cartesianco/the-ex1-rapid-3d-printing-of-circuit-boards" target="_blank">head on over</a> and show your support if you want to help the EX1 reach its US$30,000 goal.</p> <p><strong>UPDATE:</strong>&nbsp;The Cartesian Co. has now smashed its Kickstarter target with US$75,872 and counting – that's more than double their initial target with the project open until December 11th.
