Big ups to Chris Mayer, a MakerBot owner and hackerspace founder in Wisconsin, who brought his Cupcake CNC, MakerBot’s first generation machine, to the University of Wisconsin-Madison Entrepreneurship Bootcamp…and apparently drew a crowd.

Chris attended this program himself three years ago, and has since gone on to found the hackerspace Sector67. That organization can already boast some cool successes. Here’s one that Chris got to brag about:

[Sector67 member] Eric Ronning, won the UW’s 2012 Schoofs Prize for Creativity for the prosthetic hand he developed using Sector67’s 3D printer, a programmable plastic molding device.

It’s pretty cool to keep seeing people doing awesome things even with our earliest machines, and taking time to spread the knowledge. Keep going, guys! The future depends on it.

What have you done with your Cupcake CNC lately? We want to know.
