Today I walked to our weekly meeting at the Geekubator hackerspace. It is just a couple of minutes stroll from where I live. During this walk and while proudly carrying my Makerbot I passed by a lady. She looked at me and I at her. After some seconds of polite silence she smiled and asked: “Are you carrying a bomb?!”
That gave me an immediate gigantic smile on my face and I kindly replied that I carried a benign device called “Makerbot” which is only used for kind purposes! :)
Today was a very nice day! We just had our first real hacker meeting at Geekubator! Had lots of fun and also made our Makerbot create some nice 3D prints. We all look forward to next weeks get-together. :)
Bre from Makerbot Industries tells us more about their success story with the Open Source Makerbot 3D printer. He also unveils the new Thing-o-Matic at the New York Makers Faire. On impressive figure is that they have managed to produce as much as 2.111 Makerbots until now! Se also part 2, part 3 and part 4 of this video.
