Makerbot Industries: Makerbot Sends Stephen Colbert to Space

Published on .

Home 3D Printer Manufacturer MakerBot founder Bre Pettis appeared at our CAT Conference earlier this year--just hours after his appearance on the Colbert Report, where he presented Colbert with a 3D version of his head. Recently the company had more fun with the host's noggin and sent it floating into outerspace, aided by a weather balloon. A flipcam and GPS-enabled phone helped the MakerBot team capture epic space footage and retrieve the head when it descended back to earth.
