Joris Peels and Artur Tchoukanov, both former i.materialise employees, have started Origo, a company which aims to develop a 3D printer for kids.

Artur thought, “what would a 3D printer that would work in the home look like? What if we could make it easy enough so that kids could use it? What if it could recycle its own material? What if it was affordable and easy to use? What if it would just work, all the time. What if we could start from scratch and create a true home 3D printer, a 3D printer for kids. If someone wanted to make the “first on the desktop” for every kid in the world, what would that 3D printer look like and how would it work?

The Origo is still in development, but I like what I see so far. Good luck, guys!

  1. Looks like someone read Cory Doctorow’s Makers with relish. Good Show!

  2. I”m totally digging the retro styling of this little guy. When this becomes a reality, you will definitely see one on my desk!

  3. The printing services are usually composed of a wide variety of selection on paper stocks and printing inks. The paper stocks may vary depending on its thickness, size and weight. The inks are dependent on the colors that you want for your prints to have. Also, the services may also vary depending on the turnaround required for the print production. Mostly, printing companies offer fast turnaround for rush printing jobs. The turnaround for this is 3 business days or less.
