What Mixtape Will You Make?

We just brought the MakerBot Mixtape to a whole new level by releasing the negative file for the Mixtape audio component on Thingiverse! This means that with some skillful boolean operations in a 3D modeling program you’ll be able to make anything on Thingiverse into a Mixtape. If that’s not awesome then I don’t know what is.

We also put together a nice little video that features the creators of the Mixtape – John Briscella and Matt Kroner – to tell you a bit about how it works and how to assemble one. The MakerBot Mixtape was a collaboration that we did with Playbutton. Make sure you read the special little interview that The Creators Project, a wonderful forum for technology and art founded by Vice and Intel, did with our boys this week too.

And if you haven’t seen the video that we did to launch the Mixtape make sure you watch that as well. It’s kind of the most adorable thing ever.

Briscella has already put up a couple of new Mixtape ideas like the Beethoven Mixtape and the Heart Mixtape. I’ve been rocking the hell out of a stellar pink heart mixtape with acid blue buttons and it blows minds left and right.

And now what I want to know is – what Mixtape will YOU make!

    Angelo and I stayed up late and made a Snail Mixtape!

    Honestly, the markup is too high for a lot of people to justify making this. Don’t get me wrong, the idea is novel and brilliant, but at $25 not counting the time or plastic to produce the rest of it, it just crosses the line of being a gimmick. seems to offer a lot more at half the price for the same product, so I am left scratching my head…

    I’ve just looked at Playbutton’s website, and yes, they are only $15 each. And they look extremely cool. But if you want blank ones (so you can load your own choice of music) you have to buy a minimum of 25 of them. That shifts them into a whole different league of expense.
