The family-oriented team behind the Poieo3D Printer strongly believes in the value of their “baby”; the fact they’re offering a one-year warranty with every Poieo3D Printer (no other price-competitive product on Kickstarter or otherwise offers this) means they’re in this for the long haul. “We have learned so much along the way through this journey and want other families and kids to benefit,” states Jeff Alford, co-founder of Poieo3D.com. “Our goal is to create an on-line educational community of learning with training modules, instructional videos, projects for family, friends, kids, and school teachers.”
Both Allford and Zelenka share the vision of bringing a learning package centered on the Poieo3D Printer into the classroom. It is their hope that teachers will take advantage of this amazing technology to further their students’ learning experience in order to reach the diverse endpoints required in the Board of Education curriculum. Really, it’s the next logical step in the learning process, adding another dimension – literally – to the wealth of knowledge we seek to transfer to the next generation.
Currently featured in a high-profile Kickstarter campaign, the Poieo3D Printer is the first such featured device to offer a one-year warranty, free lifetime online education, and a family-friendly, child-safe design. Add to that the purely practical aspects of having a personal 3D printer in the home, workplace or classroom: next time your IKEA purchase is missing a screw, simply snap a pic and have your Poieo3D printer print out a replacement. Future generations will surely wonder, “How did we ever live without one?”
