Magnetapults are on thinkgeek!

I don't know why I didn't post this a long time ago, but the Thinkgeek is selling the mini-magnetapult's...  Here's the URL:

Also, my wife just started a new kickstarter project (using my account) that you may be interested in if you're a fan of any of Steve Job's products. (iPod, iPhone, iPad, iMac, etc.)  It allows you to literally become part of Steve! :)  Its at:

Finally, I've been at work on a new project for the last couple of months that I think will be very exciting for many kickstarters, especially those that are into 3d printing. (Its not a 3d printer. :P )  Keep an eye on my projects list!

      I hope you are working on a filament extruder, 3-d scanner or something else awesome. I can dream, can't I? No other hints?

      Congrats for getting another product on Thinkgeek, I hope business is going well for you.
      I've been building my Printrbot+ in my spare time this week (nearly finished it), so I too look forward to seeing what you have to offer :D

      Good news all around. I look forward to the 3d printer-related project.

      Have you posted the file yet for the laser cutter? Just checked your design at Instructables and didn't see one. One of my arms broke. I had left it in the launch locked position and I guess it put too much strain on it. Want to cut out a new one. Thanks!
