    Last week we told you about the latest product from MakerBot, the Replicator. It dropped at CES last week and nearly stole the show. The 3D printer for use at home has grabbed the imagination of geeks everywhere, giving them the ability to print physical objects from open-source schematics.

    The company shared a killer stop-animation music video that features characters created by the Replicator, and it has quite a catchy song in it, too:

    This video is sure to set off a meme for others to make one of their printed 3D objects. The Replicator will set you back $1,749 and is available for pre-order now.
