MakerBot to CES?

MakerBot to CES? 
MakerBot, the spirited startup who’ve begun selling a USD$750 3D Printer kit, stated something ominous on their blog: “CES 2010 Here We Come!”

CES is, of course, the famous annual Consumer Electronics Show, typically attracting well over 100,000 attendees to their Las Vegas exhibition. We’ve experienced the intimate pleasure of squeezing into McCarran Airport the day after CES closed ourselves.

CES is notable because it’s the place where certain very notable products first gained the spotlight. According to Wikipedia, they include:

  • Microsoft Xbox, 2001
  • Digital Video Recorder (DVR), 1999
  • HDTV, 1998
  • DVD, 1996
  • Virtual Boy, 1995
  • CD-i, 1991
  • Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), 1985
  • Amiga computer, 1984
  • Commodore 64, 1982
  • Compact Disc (CD) player, 1981
  • Camcorder, 1981
  • Sega Coke,1979
  • The Tennelec MCP-1 programmable scanner (radio), 1976
  • Pong home console by Atari, 1975
  • Laserdisc player, 1974
  • Video Cassette Recorder (VCR), 1970

And now MakerBot is going to the same show.

Could this be the start of the big breakthrough for 3D printing? Will MakerBot be added to Wikipedia’s list? We can only hope. Godspeed, MakerBot!
