High-tech gadget that was only available to designers, now goes mainstream.

3D printers can produce some amazing things, from cupcakes and houses, to even personalized body parts. The technology itself can cost upwards of thousands of dollars, making it inaccessible for everyday people. However, this is about to change with the MakiBox, the first 3D printer to be commercialized that costs less than a smartphone. The creator of the device, Jon Buford, states that, “This is the first 3D printer designed from the ground up to be simple, completely self-contained, reliable and most important of all, affordable!”

The MakiBox costs only $350 for the kit, or $550 for the fully assembled version and both products include international delivery fee. Buford has already received enough donations to start the first production of MakiBoxes. Watch the video below to see a demonstration of the MakiBox.
