Shapeways 3D Printing, Kickstarter and Kindle

A cool Kickstarter project that uses Shapeways 3D printing to extend the usability of the Amazon Kindle

The Kapsule Lightstand by Pieco is everything that you need to make your Kindle complete. It’s the highest quality reading light available, and it gets its power straight from the Kindle. It has a slide-out kickstand for hands-free reading, and it provides a comfortable ergo-style grip for long reading sessions.

We have seen many Apple based products to be 3D printed by the Shapeways community that have been incredibly popular in the Shapeways shops, it will be interesting to see if the Kindle community are as passionate about getting accessories for their gadget of choice.

With a pledge of just $1 you can get yourself the STL file to 3D print your own housing for the Kapsule Lightstand all the way up to $500 for Two finished Kapsules, a hand-crafted custom prototype-style Kapsule weeks before the production unit ship, and an Amazon Kindle Keyboard customized with the Pieco logo and a hand-signed thank you on the back. Nice. 

If you have a Kindle, head on over to Pieco’s Kickstarter page and see if the Kapsule Lightstand is for you.
