MakerBot Featured in “Innovators” Series on Bloomberg

Posted by on Monday, August 1, 2011 in Uncategorized

A few weekends ago, Sheila Dharmarajan from Bloomberg’s “Innovators” series came to the Botcave for a visit — check out the great piece that resulted!

A few favorite moments:

  • Sheila Dharmarajan’s lead in: “I’m about to become a plastic toy.”
  • Bre’s explanation why printing a small plastic household good you know you want on your MakerBot is a heck of a lot more environmentally conscious than purchasing something off-the-shelf that travels across the world, guzzling up fossil fuels, just to sit in climate-controlled retail store waiting for you to need it.
  • MakerBot Operator Chris Anderson (incidentally, also Editor-In-Chief of WIRED) talking about the Thing-O-Matic as an example of democratizing technology.

    Lol, “Do I have to… again…”

    Man, if I was a kid I would be the one to drop the fine china cup just to say, “oh darn, we have to print another one. I’ll go do that…”
