TAMPA, FL (WFLA) -

Science fiction is becoming reality in Tampa.

A new exhibit at the Museum of Science & Industry (MOSI) is giving people a firsthand look at some of the things being created with 3D printing.

The exhibit is called "3D Printing the Future" and is open now through the end of September.

Items on display include working 3D printers and many items from archeology to art to medical.

One of the most amazing items is a prosthetic hand that were fabricated by a father whose son was born without fingers.

The hand was made and printed on a 3D printer for around $15.

A professionally-made hand would cost upwards of $50,000.

There are also interactive displays where you can see an actual 3D printer making objects.
