It's my personal goal to enable the average consumer to innovate and become co-creators. My previous project was the LEGO crowdfunding site - http://LEGO.cuusoo.com/ Makible is a new startup I co-founded that will hopefully disrupt the current mass-manufacturing system and give power back to the local craftsmen & makers.
Once we've announced we're designing the MakiBox within the $300 budget, we get lots of feedbacks like yours. I was doing a Google+ Hangout last week and Kevin MacLeod (Incompetech.com) said:
"I was considering buying the Makerbot, but yours is $300?! And you can print bigger?! You win! I actually don't know what I can do with a 3D printer, I just know that it's cool!"
I thought that pretty much captured what I'm hoping for MakiBox, which is to get it into the hands of people who have little idea what they can do with it. I think the unbounded mind of these users, who hasn't gone through the trouble of building a RepRap or Makerbot and are aware the limitations of a 3D printer, will be so much more creative!
