eMAKER Sells The Huxley

Yet another source for RepRap-based hobby 3D printers has emerged: eMAKER. They're producing Huxley kits in several configurations (including one with no printed parts for those who already have a 3D printer and wish to produce as much of their new Huxley as possible themselves.) 
 
The kit isn't quite official. eMAKER is running a beta program by releasing a series of kits under the IndieGoGo service, which is a fundraising service similar to KickStarter. As of this writing, the most popular selection at IndieGoGo is the "eMAKER Huxley FULL kit microSD", selling for USD$500.
 
According to eMAKER's Director Jean-Marc:  
We are running a beta program through indiegogo, and will be selling the kits on our website on completion of this beta program.
 
The IndieGoGo project is wildly successful, and all 150 initial units have now been claimed. Don't fear, however, because eMAKER says: 
 
DUE TO OVERWHELMING DEMAND WE HAVE RE-OPENED THE CAMPAIGN TO OFFER A SECOND ROUND OF PRE-SALE UNITS! THIS SECOND ROUND OF UNITS WILL SHIP AFTER THE INITIAL ROUND OF 150 BETA UNITS HAS BEEN FULFILLED, AND BEFORE THE OFFICIAL PRODUCT RELEASES TO THE PUBLIC IN THE FALL OF 2011.
 
Why the huge demand? Could it be the low price (which is said to be less than the eventual public price)? Could it be that there are simply a great many people interested in 3D printing? We think both!
