The New MakerBot Replicator Might Just Change Your World

The New MakerBot Replicator Might Just Change Your World | 3D Printing and Fabbing | Scoop.it
Take the subway to an otherwise undistinguished part of Third Avenue in Brooklyn. Knock on the door. Wait for some stylishly disheveled young man to open it and let you in.

 

Very interesting article with a lot of information. If you have any interest in the future and in the subject you want to read this and see the pictures. Be avared there is 3 pages. 

Click abowe and take a step in to the future ;-)

@safegaard

 

"Unlike the jerry-built contraptions of the past, the Replicator 2s are sleek, metal, and stylish: MakerBot CEO Bre Pettis likens the design to “Darth Vader driving Knight Rider’s KITT car while being airlifted by a Nighthawk spy plane.” There is also the lighting. Oh, the lighting. “LEDs are part of our core values as a company,” Pettis jokes. The new machine will glow in any hue—”to match the color of your couch,” he says, “or like something in the movie Tron.”

You’ve heard of 3-D printers, but you probably don’t own one yet. Pettis thinks the Replicator 2 will change that."
