Submission + - 83-Year-Old Inventor Wins $40,000 3D Printing Competition (time.com)

harrymcc writes: "The Desktop Factory Competition was a contest to create an open-source design for a low-cost machine capable of turning cheap plastic pellets into the filament used by 3D printers, with a price of $40,000. The winner is being announced today — and he was born during the Hoover administration. I interviewed 83-year-old retiree Hugh Latham — a proud member of the maker movement — and the contest's organizers for a story over at TIME.com."
