XOXO + MakerBot > MakerCart

In the spirit of XOXO, MakerBot decided to give away the 3D printer showcasing at the festival to whoever tweeted the best idea for its use.

What would be more Portland than a mobile MakerBot? Thus MakerCart was born.

Best case: MakerCart will start out with a MakerBot, launch a Kickstarter to cart it and provide the other necessary infrastructure to take making to the people.

Worst case: MakerCart will start out without a MakerBot, launch a Kickstarter to get one, cart it and provide the other necessary infrastructure to take making to the people.

Either way, the next step would be for MakerCart to replicate itself around the world, bringing the making to the people.

I hope people will forgive the cheesy animation, made in haste in the wee hours. Not every made thing is a work of art.
