Presenting two new technologies that empower consumers to design and produce working physical devices customized to their particular needs:

  • A highly interactive, touch-first 3-D printing app makes 3-D modeling accessible to a broad range of consumers. It uses the 3-D printer support in Windows 8.1 and adds an intuitive, block-based editor.
  • A technique enabling users to create working interactive devices cheaply and easily, based on recent advances in conductive inks coupled with a new type of modular electronic components.

When combined, these two technologies give a glimpse of a future world where it is inexpensive and easy for users to build devices with customized form and function.
