World needs more useful and personalized gadgets.
When I think of gadgets i see things that make our everyday life easier. With 3D printing revolution this category will benefit the most. Now people with everyday problems have means to create practical solutions for those problems. Things that come to life as practical solutions are always better than something that was created to fulfill certain market niche.
I am currently working on desktop size robotic arm / manipulator, that will be used to take over monotone tasks in office, industry, household, and for educational purposes... Main goals are: make its working area about 800mm diameter, make it easy to program, make it as much 3d printable as possible, to keep the costs low, accurate within +-1mm, keep it simple. I hope to use funds gathered from shop sales for the project.
Gadgets are perfect gifts.
There is no better way of showing someone your affection then giving him something useful that looks good and makes his life easy. 3D printing also makes it possible you customize it with color setup, inscription and so on. If you are the creative type, you can even take it 1 step further by thinking of your own gift ideas for men, women, birthday gifts, baby gifts or all general usable designs such as custom bike holders, replacement camera lens protective lids, android phone protective covers with inscription...you know best. We will materialize it together.
