MakerBot Opens 3D Printing Store in Manhattan

MakerBot Replicator 2 3D Printer
I just found this Businessweek article about the 3D printing retail store that MakerBot has recently opened in Manhattan. Customers can purchase 3D printed items and see the new Replicator 2, pictured to the left here, in action.

The store features the MakerBot 3D Photo Booth... step in and it creates a 3D model of your face from a series of 2D photos, which you can then have printed to scale there in the store.

I am assuming that customers can bring in their own design files and have them printed there, though that's not explicitly stated in the article or at the MakerBot website.

Check out the Replicator 2 in action in the video embedded below.
