3D printers can make anything? Why is the normal response “what can I make?”?

Posted by Chris at Nov. 30, 2015, 10:11 a.m.

I Can Make is a publisher of 3D printable content. We make 3D printable files. Often we’re asked why we’re doing this by people at Maker Faires so we thought we should clear it up. It’s all about the difference between the maker audience and the mass market - we’ll call them “the normals” here. We call them the normals as there are considerably more of them than there are the population that constitute the Maker Movement.

This was Demo Day!

Posted by Chris at Nov. 26, 2015, 12:12 p.m.

So yesterday was Demo Day at Wayra UK. The culmination of nearly 10 months hard work from 23 amazing young companies whose journey we’ve been proud to see and share. Fromfinancial well beingtogiving sight to the blind, helpingfarmers in developing countries,putting better diabetes management literally in the hands of patients and their loved ones,ambient presence of those you care about,fixing the hours we spend on holdanda way to deeply connect the career hopes of young people to experienced mentors. You can’t help be inspired by these companies day in day out, to see it all in one day was almost overwhelming, especially when the founders have become friends.
