This post is part of the series, SmallBusiness.com Guide to Business Gadgets: The newly invented or conceptual devices that are called everything from gadget to gizmo to "what were they thinking?" You can browse other posts in the series below.
Each year on SmallBusiness.com, we declare this week “Small Business Gadget Week,” because a sub-group of products launched at the annual Consumer Electronics Show are as much a “small business” product as a “consumer” one. It’s all about how you use technology, not the technology itself. Get ready for several posts that will tickle your gizmo bone.
Product | AIO Robotics Zeus Plus
At this year’s CES (2016), one of the four 3-D printing innovation award winners was AIO Robotics’ Zeus Plus, an integrated 3-D scanner and printer with its own all-in-one touchscreen interface. The general trend in 3-D printing is currently on improving speed and ease of use. The industry still has lots of market education to accomplish to help 3-D printers be perceived as a tool for small businesses beyond product designers, developers and custom manufacturers.
AIO Robotic’s current product, the Zeus ($2,500), is featured in the video below.
