I've got a few more angles and some video; should I post? It's a hell of a machine; we've got our first mold that we're going to cut on it:

I am dumb.
Can anyone explain how sms linking to car alarm is connected to 3D printing?
And what is Bolts kickstarter project is about?

The car is 3D printed, if somebody kicks your phone it sends an sms to the car, the car uses gps to find your phone and runs over the person who kicked it....I think :)

This is a great idea, wish you luck Bolt!
My 1st post here in years, I found the fact that you and Dan were talking about exiting the industry intruiging. I feel I am at that point as well.....remembering back to 10 years ago when most of us were just starting out or hobbyists I wonder if the life expectancy of a CG artist is a decade haaha

best of luck!

We realized that we jumped in too soon... we're back on the drawing board moving the production prototypes closer to being manufactured.

Getting there...

It's sad to see it got pushed back, maybe for the best of interests and really get it polished. Keep at it Marko, I'm sure you'll make it commercially available soon! Sounds like a great idea for people who care a little too much about their cars :)

You don't mind if someone dents your car? Or breaks your window and steals something?

Do you have an alarm for your home?

(All actual questions, curious as to your opinions)

To be honest Marko, I haven't had a car for about a year now since I moved to another country. But back when I did have a car I didn't really pay much attention to it, for me it was a tool more than a precious belonging (even though it was a nice car).

Back in Mexico City I had my car open and stuff stolen from it once and I sure hoped something like this existed back then. A dent in the car, that I wouldn't really mind, I'll say it again it's just a tool for me. But I know people take their cars much more seriously than I ever did that's the reason I'm saying your product's got a lot of potential.

I don't have an alarm for my place right now but I don't really think I need one now, tha building I live in has got multiple restricted access doors and video cameras everywhere, all paid by the owner.

Thanks for the input.

Overall, it's less about dents- more about knowing if something (anything) has happened to your car... Dents to break-ins and theft; we're looking to cover it all.
