When last we spoke to Michael Curry it was in preparation for the debut of the Kansas City Maker Faire and how his now famous “talking head” delighted viewers of the “Stephen Colbert Show.”Now, the man whose 3-D printing creativity was launched with his purchase of Kit #99, has added a new dimension to his life. He’s moved to Brooklyn, to work directly with MakerBot, the company that manufactured the original Cupcake printer.
“The people MakerBot has collected are incredible,” says Curry. “I’m hoping that I will get a chance to work with them on crazy projects of all sizes. My work here is still evolving, but at its heart I am a member of MakerBot’s marketing efforts.”
He’ll be well positioned to educate and excite people about the possibilities of 3-D printed creations.
Curry feels he’ll be using his existing skill set extensively. Combining his architectural training and successful creative experimentation with 3-D printing and object design, he’s looking to “hopefully add to what I know how to do and be able to complete some of my more ambitious projects.”
Look for him at his first big event of the season at the NYC Maker Faire on September 17 and 18 in the New York Hall of Science. He’s already hard at work on something special so keep your eyes open for more creations from Curry.
Next up, while Michael C. settles into his new domicile, we’re heading over to his alma mater to find out what Cornell University’s got cooking in their kitchen with 3-D food printing.

She suspects 3-D printing may hold the key to a future extension of her own best before date expiration, and possibly replacement of some parts with 3-D and new materials while enhancing her daily life now.
