TechCrunch TV Takes a Tour of MakerBot with Bre Pettis
It’s been months in the making, but here it is: the first episode of TechCrunch Makers, featuring Bre Pettis of Makerbot. We visited Bre’s downtown Brooklyn factory where he and the rest of team design, build, and ship hundreds of Makerbots a week.
Our goal for this series is to highlight hardware entrepreneurs – folks who are building something cool and making the world a cooler place while doing it. Look for upcoming episodes on distilling in the city, reanimated farms, and Arduino.
Our favorite part of the video is when John Biggs realizes that MakerBot machines are actually assembled onsite, as opposed to some factory in China. In a tongue-and-cheek reference to people buying eggs and not knowing a chicken is involved, Bre responds ”these are my glorious chickens.”
