10-year-old Schulyer loves his MakerBot! So much so, he was willing to get up in front of an audience of 850 people at Ignite Phoenix to tell everybody about it, explain 3D printing, and the import of the technology. Way to go, Schulyer! I love how he’s a lab coat with feet. They gotta start making these in pint sizes. [via Boing Boing]
