Sound you can touch. The Vibe is a new app with that tagline and it captures the imagination to think you can touch a sound wave, especially if it is from your favorite song. But that’s part of Shapeways core mantra as I see it – if you can imagine it, you can probably design it and 3D print it. This is also why the folks at SXSW recognized them as one of the hottest companies to watch.
Elegant is the first word that comes to mind when I visit the Shapeways site. The home page showcases the work of professional, serious and fun-loving design types that share and sell in this rapidly growing community and marketplace.
