Printing Christmas presents for disadvantaged children

One of the big trends of 2013 has been 3D printing. While it is still too early to tell how much of a difference the technology will make, it is already having an effect on Christmas for some children.

BBC Click's Spencer Kelly talks to Camila Batmanghelidjh, the founder of the charity Kids Company, about Christmas for some of the disadvantaged children in the UK who will receive toys made with a 3D printer.

The charity will open its doors to 4,000 children, young people and vulnerable adults on Christmas day.

Watch more clips on the Click website. If you are in the UK you can watch the whole programme on BBC iPlayer.
