$299 3D Printer Achieves Kickstarter Goal In Minutes
An ultra-cheap 3D printer has hit its Kickstarter goal in just 11 minutes, with some lauding it as the first mass market version of the technology.
Makers M3D have currently raised over $1m (£597,000) well ahead of their $50,000 target with 28 days to go.
Early backers will get the machine for just $199 and other backers can pledge as little as $299.
Dubbed Micro, it comes with easy-to-use software that allows users to search, drag and drop objects to print.
Kickstarter is a crowd-funding website that has breathed life into a range of technology projects, including the virtual reality headset Oculus Rift, which was subsequently bought by Facebook for $2bn.
