Our goal is to democratize manufacturing. And so it’s been one step after another, building machines that can get into people’s hands.3D Printing isn’t something new; it’s been around for about 25 years or so. But up until MakerBot you’d have to sneak into an elite institution, a design house or something like that. We really wanted one, so we made one and when we got it to work we made a kit so everybody can have one!I just think back to what I would have done with a MakerBot when I was ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen and my head explodes. . . in the next few years you’ll see kids getting a hold of these doing amazing things.
