Origo’s 3D Printer Could Be The Last Toy Your Ten Year Old Will Ever Need

“If you make what you want exactly as you want it to be, those things will be of higher value to you than the mass produced crap that dominates our world. With 3D printing you can make something that fits your body precisely, or a gift that fits the occasion precisely. You can make something for one person, you. This is where the true promise of 3D printing lies, to let us escape mass production and make the things that we really want. 3D printing closes the resolution gap between the imagination and reality. It is a wish fulfillment technology. It is our hope that by closing the gap between kids’ imaginations and the things they can make they will partially lose interest in mass produced items and they will help push back mass production.”
