Cube 3D Printer is at Best Buy

You can order 3D printers online, sure, but now you can pick up a 3D printer and accessories at an old fashioned brick and mortar Best Buy store.  It is now available at a limited number of stores in the US for now, but hopefully will pop up everywhere before long.

3D Print Your Apple Watch Band
