Microsoft’s user experience designer, Karsten Aagaard shows Joshua Topolsky around Microsoft’s very cool product prototyping lab. In this video you can see a total of 3 Objet 3D printers (2 Objet Eden’s and a brand new Objet Connex500) that are being used to rapidly prototype the next generation of Microsoft products!
Karsten really knows his stuff as he expounds on the unique benefits of 3D printing and the Objet Connex. He explains how a bicycle chain can be produced in a single shot with no assembly and how to achieve a wide range of flexible/rigid model combinations including overmolding for a PC mouse prototype. Also very nice, the 3D printed transparent touch-screen for the Windows phone.
