The Sinclair ZX10 of the printing age?
(You whippersnappers might not know, but when Ataris and Commodores were going for $400 to $800, a nutbar from the UK brought out a personal computer for $100. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZX81)
The m3d making records on kickstarter seems like it’s cut from the same cloth. One of the things I hadn’t seen yet in the hype was a plain document explaining their goals and methods. There’s definitely some interesting stuff here, but like the $100 Personal Computer, it’s build volume is a bit smaller than I’m interested in at this time.)
