Exciting news in the 3D printing world! One of our favourite companies My Robot Nation is acquired by 3D Systems.
My Robot Nation, a leading consumer technology platform that provides intuitive, game-like content creation for 3D printing is expected to integrate the ‘My Robot Nation’ platform and experience into Cubify.com. This integration will enhance Cubify with hundreds of new fun and easy 3D creations and printing applications. This combined with its ever growing develop community will make Cubify a very serious player.
A good marriage
My Robot Nation’s founders, Mark Danks and Sarah W. Stocker (renowned games industry veterans) will join the 3D Systems team. Their job now is to enhance Cubify with engaging play spaces, social features, and intuitive user interfaces.
“We are thrilled to bring MRN to Cubify and enable everyone to create and manipulate 3D objects right in their browser in real-time — something that was previously only possible in PC applications or consoles games. We’re using that power and flexibility to empower everyone to turn their virtual creations into real creations through the disruptive magic of 3D printing,” said Mark Danks, co-founder of My Robot Nation.
“We are very excited to add a disruptive capability like My Robot Nation to our Cubify platform enabling millions of new users, including kids from the ages of 8 to 80, to instantly and intuitively create and make in 3D,” said Abe Reichental, President and Chief Executive Officer of 3D Systems. “We believe that this investment will accelerate the gamification and democratization of the entire Cubify experience, and at the same time, facilitate our expansion into 3D hosting, publishing and the production of licensed content for other global consumer brands.”
This all sounds like a good marriage, we can’t wait to see what the first child will look like!
