As the maker puts it:
“My name is Plumbutter. My face is a psycho-geographical map of the cities of Baltimore and Cleveland. I am a drum-machine, but let me tell you I am more than that, for I also am a “drama machine”. Thus there exists in me, a dialectic between drum and drama, like cops and gangsters, male versus female, or rural versus urban. You can see my wild spaces are represented by a deer-horn, and my downtown by a factory, and in between, a vast swath of suburban developments. It is a gradient of these three areas- urban, suburban, and rural- that informs my electronic synthesis.”

Gone are the days when 3d printers could only chorn out boring old plastic.
Along come a new generation of much less lame printers that can print conductive materials. I am talkig about the exciting new Voxel8 and Voltera (the latter isnt strictly speaking 3d but impressiv nonetheless.)
Still not the cheapest way to make things but it looks promising!
I would like to get my hands on one of these to see what kind of weird instruments could be made.
