Mattel’s new 3D printer lets kids make toys

TechCrunch reports on toy-maker Mattel’s latest innovation:

At New York’s Toy Fair trade show over the weekend, Mattel unveiled its new, $300 3D Printer, the “ThingMaker,” which will allow children to print their own toys at home. The device works in conjunction with a 3D printing app developed in collaboration with Autodesk that offers a simple interface for designing items that can then come to life via Mattel’s ThingMaker as well as with other standard 3D printers already on the market.

As a kid, I would have killed for this. It’s like wishing for more wishes.
