The fun part of CES is getting to see new technology for the first time. Looking at a wall of 3D TVs the size of a house is truly a breathtaking experience and I have to say that some of the booths here resemble more of an alien future than any place i have hung out in on earth. With that said, the crew didn’t let me out much and 98% of my time has been introducing people to the Cube and Cubify. Its a hard experience to describe. I have essentially been showing people something they didn’t know existed and from there, showing them how how many possibilities it opens for them in their lives. I assume its like going back to the 1920s and telling someone about the internet.
The cool part about not being an engineer is I can react to the technology of 3D printing more as a fan than as a guy in the know. As far as I know, we have gnomes hopped up on redbull powering the thing. I have no idea. Some of the guys at Cnet reacted the same. Some of the people at the show echoed their sentiment.
What im saying is for me, this is some life changing tech and I reacted with a whoa. What about you? What is the first 3D printed part you’ve ever held? Were you as blown away as I was?
