I saw Makerbot on Stephen Colbert last night and I immediately thought it would be perfect to showcase here. This phenomenal 3D printer allows someone to create literally anything (see Stephen Colbert's head as a n American bald eagle, the Capitol respectfully in the grip of Colbert's talons).

And if you're having trouble figuring out what you should make with your Makerbot, visit Thingiverse.com for some inspiration.
