what an odd boast

That is a peculiar feature for them to boast about. Makerbot and several reprap varieties have been doing this for years now. I think makerbot advertised being the first back when they made the thing-o-matic! Even then people had been doing it on repraps already.

Here are a few links for your personal amusement.

FFD dual head printer

Makerbot Replicator

Mbot dual head

 

How about a $100 dual head upgrade for any printer?

What feature are you talking about? The dual heads or the inbuilt camera?

The dual heads. All over their site and twitter they keep saying their the first dual head. It looks like a decent affordable printer, but that kind of speak is just irritating. It is so far from being the first that it is silly.  

 

Find your strong points and brag. Maybe they're the cheapest? easiest to use? who knows. They're not the first though.

@Caleb: I like the $100 dual haed upgrade for any printer -- how did that Kickstarter project turn out? Did they succeed?

Their goal was $5,000, they got $73,000. That is a success!

Here's a cool new one capable of doing quad filament. Unfortunately I don't think they got enough coverage. They end soon and they're only half way there!

I mean, did they ever succeed commercially -- can I go out and buy one?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
