Design News tells of a not-quite-opened 3D printing service: My Robot Nation. It's a joint venture between ZCorp, Kodama Studios and Offload Studios (one of ZCorp's print services clients). They're attempting to bridge the gap that exists in the 3D printing space right now: where are some great printable objects? Specifically, robots.
There's not much information about how My Robot Nation will operate, but we suspect it would be similar to other 3D print services that provide a means to customize objects within a limited range of options. Probably there will be collections of robot parts that can be assembled into, well, robots. Then you'd print them using the My Robot Nation print service (Offload Studios). The next thing you know, there's a robot in your mailbox.
