Materialize Your Style
We're pretty confident that geeks and fashionistas will find themselves united over the mainstreaming of in-home 3D printing technology. The two major systems are Maker Bot's Replicator ($1749), which prints in two colors and is supported by the robust Thingiverse community; and the Cube ($1299 and up), whose owners can find designs and inspiration on Cubify.com. If you're prepared to pony up the cash, a 3D printer might just make your design dreams come alive with the click of a button. Not convinced fashion and technology mix well together?
