I Want a “Napster Fabber” for Christmas, Santa!

News of this project, of this site, made me giddy with excitement. When we posted the piece about Draw and Print Furniture earlier this month, I saw it as a glimmer of something wholly 21st century. This project, to create a bottom-up open source boom in desktop fabbing, has a similar resonance. It intersects so many current techno-cultural vectors: the new Maker/DIY movement, open-source software, Web 2.0 publishing, blobjects and blogjects. And the truly revolutionary thing about it is it seems SO doable. Might we be including, say a MAKE Kit to build one of these in our ’07 Gift Guide? Maybe ’08?
