With 31 days left in its campaign on Kickstarter, the desktop, low-cost, open source, easy to use 3D printer RoBo has already raised a whopping $84,000 after setting an initial goal of just $49,000. Mashable reports.

The team behind the RoBo says it will sell for just $520, compared to most 3D printers, which have price tags well into the thousands of dollars. Another big sell for the RoBo is its convenience. Users will essentially be able to plug it in and start printing "within minutes" after bringing it home.quotesmarksleft.jpg
