Fulfilling the rewards is the reason for initiating a large scale fabrication run. By using Kickstarter for this, we’re taking full advantage of the global community as a way of diffusing tiles to the widest possible audience, you the backers. This network effect is a unique quality of any social net, and is something that cannot be achieved otherwise.
The nascent FABMOBs community is built from the convergence of two existing ones:
- from the Maker community, those who are already using 3d printers, and
- from the Smart Citizens, people already experimenting with technologically mediated, environmental activism.
We want to enable the creative potential of 3Dprinting for anybody and everybody interested in experimenting with this fledging technology. This potential can only be realized by controlling the entire 3Dprinting workflow, from the design of the object, to the creation of the necessary information describing the object to be fabricated.
