Domestic maufacturing machine that will benefit society


DK Ahn’s project Microfactory is about introducing people to domestic manufacturing machines. The idea is to develop new manufacturing methods which will benefit society as a whole. Through his first object in this series, called MOW, people would be able to design, make their own products sitting back home. MOW is a portable tabletop cutting device that can slice through light sheet materials like cardboard, polypropylene and wood under 2mm thick.

The usage is very simple: just download or created a pattern of your choice and send it to MOW via Bluetooth. Controlled by four cables, it would automatically cut the pattern from the material. There is a working prototype made from recycled materials from plotters,and maylines to remote controlled cars.
