Believe the hype: 3D printing is a game changer. From art to auto parts, prosthetic limbs to food to firearms, this rapidly developing, disruptive technology is bringing the future to us now.
Bre Pettis, founder of the innovative Brooklyn-based 3D printer company MakerBot, is a leader of the revolution. Studio 360’s Kurt Andersen welcomes Pettis to The Greene Space for a festive show-and-tell with participants in our Holiday Ornament Challenge. They're joined by special musical guests Javelin, a sample-happy duo with a penchant for making new things out of old things and whose sound is like "an FM tuner shoulder-jostling between low-watt stations playing electro, funk, world music, and early hip-hop."

Enter the challenge here, or just come for music, free drinks and good clean techie holiday fun. The deadline to be considered for our contest is 11:59pm ET December 2, 2013.
This is the first edition of the WNYC Science Fair, a new series of events in The Greene Space that mixes your favorite public radio personalities with popular science, competition and alcohol.
