Out of Hand: Materializing the Postdigital at the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) is the first in-depth museum survey dedicated to exploring the impact of computer-assisted methods of production on contemporary art, architecture, and design. Shapeways is partnering with MAD for the exhibition and will host ‘OUT OF HAND/HANDS ON,’ an educational and interactive space on the Museum’s second floor where visitors will be able to experience 3D design and printing firsthand.
Opening in conjunction with the exhibition curated by Ron Labaco on October 16th and running through April 2014, the ‘OUT OF HAND/HANDS ON’ space will include a series of interactive 3D apps for visitors to create their own 3D models, on site 3D scanning, and 3D printing in a range of materials. Shapeways’ ‘Designers in Residence’ working in the gallery will also be available to demonstrate 3D modeling techniques and tools used to create objects like those in the exhibition.

The Vibe : Shapeways helps you 3D print a custom iPhone case with your favorite sound from SoundCloud
Sound is everywhere, blasting from your computer, cellphone, and car radio. It’s in conversations, whispers, and laughs, populating memories from the first “I love you” to “I have a dream.” At first, sound existed in invisible waves, and more recently, in iconic visualizations. Starting today, you can hold it in your hand.
Shapeways is thrilled to announce that we’re launching The Vibe, an iPhone case you can fully customize with your favorite sound from SoundCloud, the social sound platform. It’s the latest Creator from Shapeways that lets anyone turn an idea into a physical reality.
We asked the Shapeways community what they think Apple’s Siri looks like and ran a contest to 3D print the winner.
