Hey Presto! Ponoko!

I’ve always been impressed the make-on-demand website, Ponoko.com.


But now they’ve added a new feature to their site which, quite simply, is like magic. Check out their new Photomake service. Here’s a demo:



With Photomake anyone can make a product without using design software. All you do is hand draw your design using good old fashioned pen and paper – and a digital camera or scanner to upload. Ponoko then create that product using a laser cutter, and the material of your choice.


It’s been a long time since I’ve been completely blown away by a website. Ponoko now makes it easy for anyone to create and sell their own products. I like it.

  1. Conceptually I like it – But it feels kind of pointless… unless there is far more it can do – I guess it’s the start of something pretty cool…. kind of like like web 1996…
