Clearly, we’re not the only ones excited about craft brewing. Congratulations to our friends at nearby PicoBrew, whose Kickstarter campaign reached its goal with nearly a month to go! The automatic device is connected yet simple, a countertop combo of off–the–shelf parts and custom DIY solutions. In short, it’s what many of us have been waiting for. Risky flavor combinations, small batches, side–by–side comparisons? Check. A flexible platform means there is room for serious experimentation right at home.

More and more, we’re seeing projects like PicoBrew that bring product development into our daily lives. Want to innovate? Invent a new beer, 3D print a tool, write a storybook by animating your scribbles instantly. We marvel at the expanding possibilities—and we can’t wait to start experimenting with our own custom brews.
