Last weekend, I visited one of my favorite indie bookstores in the city, Politics and Prose. I had read in their newsletter than they have a new print on demand machine. Basically if the book store didn't have a copy of the book that you wanted, they'd be able to print it for you (I'm assuming copyright laws would still have to apply). Also, I think you'd be able to print out your own personal books. This could open so many doors for so many readers and authors. It's really awesome.
I believe the particular machine that Politics and Prose has is one made by Xerox and it sort of looks like this:

How awesome is this?
