PandaBot 3D printer is brought to Kickstarter by Panda Robotics, a Toronto-based startup. Panda Robotics hopes to secure $50,000 in support and there are many rewards for all support levels. At $800 you'll be first in line to receive a PandaBot 3D printer, with delivery targeted for February 2013.

"We saw that the existing tools were hard to use and that nothing was really consumer-focused, so we're here to make 3D printing accessible," said Graeme Hein, product manager for Panda Robotics.

"We're really playing through the whole 1970s personal computing revolution, with the same issues of large companies producing big and expensive machines, to the hobbyist culture developing and moving up into truly easy to afford products."

I heard a rumor about a new desktop 3D printer for under 500 bucks coming to kickstarter soon called RoBo 3d. Anyone else? I would like to wait if I can get one at that price
