Kudos to Bre Pettis and the MakerBot team for doing such a great job on the Colbert Report last night. It was like a 5-minute infomercial for the MakerBot. Who would watch this and NOT want one? Also my friend, DC artist (and current MakerBot Artist-in-Residence) Jonathan Monaghan, helped with scanning Stephen’s head and made the eagle Stephen that’s shown. Way to go, Jonathan!

    My favorite part was Stephen’s disembodied 4-piece ABS head signing off at the end. I just died when I saw that.
