We got ABS into the MakerBot store (store.makerbot.com) and Marius and Philip of the Whatever Lab in Vienna were visiting and they set up the MakerBot named Martha Vader to sing the imperial march and make a Darth Vader Head. The force is strong with this one.

Bre will be at Maker Faire in San Mateo:

We’re going to be showing up at Maker Faire with 3 makerbots and our plan is to run them straight through the entire Faire cranking out 3D objects from Thingiverse and setting them free into the world.

We’re also going to be on a mission to make robot friends with all the other robots at the Faire!

There is really a huge amount of information on the MakerBot blog. Lots of How-Tos and good examples. Open source all the way, though we’re going to have to wait for that photographic evidence proving their ultimate open source cred. Maybe a long time…
