Weisler said the company did not want to get into 3-D printing until it could address the three big problems associated with the technology: Speed, cost and quality. But he said he feels like HP has tackled all of these issues with its new printing technology dubbed multi-jet fusion.
"What we are witnessing here really is the dawn of the new era," Weisler said of the new printing technology.
The company also revealed a new computer called Sprout that is centered around "immersive computing," Weiser said.
Sprout is a combination of a large touch-enabled flat-screen with an overhead projector that doubles as a 3-D scanner. The overhead device projects images down on a touch pad where the images can be manipulated with the user's hands or a stylus.
The PC runs Microsoft Windows 8 operating system with HP software. It will be on display in Best Buy stores beginning this weekend and will go on sale Nov. 9.
"It is a platform we will build a future," Weisler said. "We are now only limited by our imaginations."
