MakerBot Replicator hands-on (video) via Engadget.
Sure, there’s really not much of a DIY presence amongst the shiny new mass produced gadgets that line the halls of the Las Vegas Convention Center during CES, but MakerBot’s public appearances at the show managed to leave an impression on just about everyone who spotted the company’s newly announced Replicator 3D printer. Founder Bre Pettis stopped by our stage at the convention center’s Grand Lobby, becoming our final interview of the show. We managed to get him to print something out during our conversation, but the real draw was, no doubt, the large plastic rocket ship lamp sitting at the end of the stage, a pretty solid visual reminder of the concept of being able to print out just about anything you can imagine with one of these devices.
Here’s also an interview of Bre Pettis, CEO and Co-founder of MakerBot Industries, at the CES 2012.
