MakerBot's Cupcake CNC is the Altair 8800 of 3-D Printers
$750 for this kit is great! This is the Altair 8800 of 3D printers. This technology will accelerate twice as fast as computers have. 35 years from the Altair 8800 2 MHz (each instruction takes 4 clock cycles) with 256 bytes of RAM to the 8 core Mac Pro Tower with 32GB of RAM / 2.93GHz processors / 64 bit OS. I can't wait to see what these printers will be capable of in 10 years.
