New York Notables

Posted by on Monday, June 13, 2011 in Uncategorized

We might have started with Stephen Colbert, but we didn’t stop there.  Since last week,  our artist-in-residence Jonathan Monaghan has been busy scanning artists, bloggers, hackers, musicians, comedians and our friends — whoever we find interesting or notable and could visit our offices.

If you want to have a look to see who we’ve been scanning, have a look at the Thingiverse user “Friends.”  We’ll be adding to this over the course of the next few weeks, and then,  June 30th we’ll be having a party to show off what we’ve done.

This is going to be part art show, part party — we’ll be printing busts of our New York Notables for visitors to take home.  So make sure to pencil in a visit to our new workshop for the evening of Thursday June 30th — you won’t want to miss this one.

    Whoa I was just flipping out about all the people flooding onto thingiverse! Are you calling these people things because they are on Thingiverse THE UNIVERSE OF THINGS! :)

    If they are notable maybe you should let us uniformed people know who these people are. I only know that is Cory since he posted on BB about it. I second elspeth’s request for more info on the scanner.

    It’s 22,000 dollars… And 10 percent of that cost a month to rent it…
