We stumbled across this wee gem last week. A futuristic look at fashion, or in this case travelling light!
Imagine never having to pack and bring a suitcase along every time you travelled? 3D printing master Janne Kyttanen has reduced everything you could need for a trip down into digital files so you can 3D print your stuff when you get there.

How realistic is it? Very, especially considering that what they have demonstrated here is actually happening now. As technology advances we can imagine them being able to make the end products finer and more wearable. Who knows, it might end up as fine and luxurious as silk.
