3D printing and celebs? Sure, why not?
will.i.am of Black Eyed Peas fame has joined up with 3D printing company 3D Systems as Chief Creative Officer.
Unlike other star endorsements, it really sounds like Mr. i.am is passionate about printing.

Avi Reichental, CEO of 3D Systems, reinforces this by saying they want to avoid the "Napsterization" of printing.
