Hi, everyone. It looks like I'm the first regular user from the entire Asian continent to post an introduction here.
I'm Wesley from Seoul, South Korea (I, uh, work at Gangnam), and I used to build a lot of custom-made miniature computers.

I would cut and paste acrylic sheets to do that, but since hearing about this newfangled 3D-printing stuff, I decided to invest in a printer and Makibox is it. Since I'm also a father of two kids, the prospect of creating new toys instead of buying them from somewhere was quite intriguing, as well.

As you can see, I'm eagerly waiting for my own Makibox to come and play with. I know of a lot of folks around me that are willing to try a 3D printer out as long as it's not too expensive or cumbersome, and they're waiting to see how my experience will turn out. I might be able to start a local user group if conditions are good.
If at first you fail, print, print again.

I have an Ultimaker and the Kids love it: "Print me R2D2 Dad!"

Would love to have you as the first Makibox Builder Club in Seoul. I can even fwd some friends of mine to your Club. I am connected to the GoogleTechnologyUG in Seoul (http://seoul.gtugs.org/)

Here's a newspaper article that shows the vest version of the wearable computer on the second link I posted up there.

If I were making something like that these days, it'd be with a variant of Raspberry Pi, maybe mounted on the head, even. The mount would be 3D-printed, obviously.

As an update to the profile, I've received my Makibox A6 HT kit in December 2013.
I'm actually using it to print toys for my kids, who've since grown a lot and now appreciate them better.
