DO IT YOURSELF: Meet Printrbot, the "all-in-one 3D printer kit that can be assembled and printing in a couple of hours." This open hardware project by Brook Drumm has been a Kickstarter hit, to say the least: with 17 days remaining, 687 backers have already pledged a whopping $250k+--more than ten times his goal of $25,000. See your wacky Google SketchUps come to life. Make toys instead of buying them. Better yet--let your kids to make their own.
