3D Pittsburgh

I would propose this idea to the Awesome Pittsburgh folks, but I am pretty sure I need more than $1000 to do this.....   We really need a franchise of this store here in Pittsburgh.  Pop up store anyone?

Adjusted for inflation, that this is quite a bit cheaper than an Apple II was when I was a kid. In fact, it's probably not much more expensive than a VCR was back then.

Yes, we do need one of these stores, but there is a Pittsburgh MakerBot community working out of the old roundhouse in Hazelwood, and also I think has something afoot.

But you're right, we need one of these stores so people can buy one for their high school, their garage, etc. And then all the white-hat makers can get jobs at the MakerBot Genius Bar.

HackPittsburgh has this down as a nonprofit, and TechShop (Bakery Square, opening in March) is the for-profit version we'll have shortly. :-)
