3D Printing, Teleporters and Wishes

Pt 336

3D Printing, Teleporters and Wishes by Anil Dash.

I’ve been infatuated with 3D printing for a few years now; the rise of (NYC’s own!) MakerBot and other startups offering simple ways to create physical objects as easily as we create paper output from our computers is extraordinarily exciting. I have no doubt that, in a few years, you’ll be able to go to Best Buy on Black Friday and when you buy a new computer, they’ll throw in a 3D printer for free.

But that being said, I don’t think we’re on the path to widespread adoption and success for 3D printers yet, and while I’ve had this conversation with Bre at MakerBot as well as some other influential folks in the space, I thought I’d jot down my notes as a sort of wishlist for where I hope the 3D fabrication and printing world is headed.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
