Staples to Sell 3D Printer!

How timely! Staples has announced over this last week that it’s on track to sell a retail 3D printer, called the Cube, to the public, available now for the low low price of $1299.

Skimming the top tech blogs, there are mixed feelings on the issue with some editorials commenting that such a purchase is a waste of money, and that the 3D printer fad is over: ReadWrite, TechCrunch.

Others are reporting more objectively that the Cube printer manufacturer, 3D Systems, is trying to break into the public markets and bring this technology into the living room (CNN Money). For $1299, it’s not a cheap Mother’s Day gift … but that price might fall as adventurous consumers pick it up and begin utilizing the technology in their own homes.
