system, but I've been told (albeit from a Slashdot discussion) that the
result would be very slow.
I've been told the same thing (something to do with low mobility of
electrons in plastics - I was told a few kHz was the best you could expect
from the circuits they can do now). But just think of the parallelism you
could get printing off an A4 sheet of SIMD elements ;-)
