The merchandise in the PopSci Shop is managed by a third party. PopSci gets a slice of the profits.
In the future, manufacturing may look very different. Instead of buying products made in giant factories, we might order designs online and print them in 3D at home. If you want your offspring to embrace this technology, get them Toybox. This 3D printer for kids allows your little ones to print their own toys. You can get the printer now in a Deluxe Bundle (incl. eight filaments) for $314.99 at the PopSci Shop.
While there are many printers aimed at adult hobbyists, Toybox might be the first 3D printer for kids. It is very simple to use, yet still packed with advanced features.
You control Toybox through a companion smartphone app. Your kids can browse through a vast catalog of toy designs and choose the ones they want to print. With a couple of taps, the printer gets to work—no complex software or fiddly calibration required.
Toybox can print in eight different colors, using non-toxic, biodegradable filaments. In this Deluxe Bundle, you get enough “printer food” to print between 100 and 300 toys. That’s Thanksgiving covered for a few years.
The bundle is worth $469, but you can grab it now for just $314.99.
Want a more grown-up printer? RoboxDual can print with two materials at once and you can swap out nozzles for different effects. Normally $1,499, RoboxDual is now only $449.99 for a limited time.
