Staples is going to sell 3D printers.

Staples, the world’s largest office products company and second largest e-commerce company, today became the first major U.S. retailer to announce the availability of 3D printers. The Cube® 3D Printer from 3D Systems, a leading global provider of 3D content-to-print solutions, is immediately available on Staples.com for $1299.99 and will be available in a limited number of Staples stores by the end of June.

Awhile ago we had thought FedEx/Kinkos would be the first to do this (offering 3D printing services, and then actual machines – Staples is first mover on stocking and selling units).
