Usually we think of documentation in terms of text, photography and video, but given the tangible theme of the conference we decided to engage the community by capturing and fabricating small 3D models of attendees. This enabled us to build a tangible model of the event and fabricate it piece by piece during the conference.

Charlie Sorrel covers it in Wired and as usual he has a great analogy that explains it -- "Fabricate Yourself" is like a 3-D photo booth. With the official SDK on the way, we can expect to see more magic like this over the coming months. Now, where is that 3D printer:
