    Default Makerbot 3D printer factory is located in Brooklyn (Brooklyn????)

    Pretty cool video showing that the Makerbot 3D printer is actually assembled by a bunch of intelligent American people (referred to as "glorious chickens" by the CEO at the 5:28 mark). The devices are selling from about $2,500 to $4,000 from what I can find. A high tech factory in Brooklyn! Not China! And not run by somebody embarrassing like Dov Charney!

    These products are going to RADICALLY change our lives.

    And then those printers will be able to print themselves and the glorious chickens will be out of work.

    I'm really fascinated by these 3d printers, and amazed (although I shouldn't be) at how fast the prices are dropping. Some friends of mine bought one for their lighting company a year ago, used, for 8 grand and that was a great deal. I desperately want them to let me play with it, but no dice yet. They really are going to change the world.

    haha, I know a few people that work at Makerbot, and it IS really cool stuff. There are lots of great software (and increasingly more hardware) companies based in NYC & the out west. (I work at one.)
    here I am, rock you like a hurricane.
