GE has dubbed December 3rd 3D printing day as a way to celebrate the revolutionary technology and what it means for manufacturing (and to make your holiday shopping easier). They’ve teamed up with celebrities and businesses to design 3D gifts and knickknacks, and you can win your own customized versions of them on December 3rd.
Here’s GE’s video about how the whole event works:
For more information, you can head over to 3dprintmygift.tumblr.com to see all of the celebrity and designer teams and decide which gift you like best. Most of them are basically ornaments or decorations, but they’ve also got stuff like acoustic iPhone speaker amplifiers and laptop webcam/mic privacy covers for the geeks in your life.
Once you make your choice, tweet it tomorrow with #3DPrintMyGift, and you could win a customized version for yourself. Then, you can sit back, relax, and let someone print your gift out and send it to you instead of braving the stores, because we live in the future.
