Thanks to Tony Buser who caught a glimpse of a familiar friend in the trailer for the brand new Sundance Channel series “Quirky”.1 The show focuses on two new “citizen designers” each week — home grown inventors and designers from Quirky’s online community – who show up with a dream for product and then work with the Quirky team to realize a prototype. Catch the show to experience the entire process of taking a product from sketch to thing within a dramatically orchestrated, time-compressed window.
Ah, TV about innovation — what more could the MakerBot community want? We love in particular that Ben Kaufman, the founder of Quirky, is introduced standing next to a printing MakerBot Thing-O-Matic. Why not? We always do our best to stand next to a MakerBot when we want to draw in the crowds as well.2
