Get whatever you want on demand with no hassle. To get started, just text "MAGIC" to 83489. We have trained operators standing by 24/7 to answer every one of your requests. Magic was originally created as a side project within Plus Labs (aka Bettir), a blood pressure company in the Winter 2015 Y Combinator batch.
I co-founded Made In Space to accelerate progress towards human space colonization, by providing the first real alternative to rockets for getting things to space. It's cheaper, faster, and safer to build stuff there than it is to launch it. We've created the first 3D printer in space, which is currently on the International Space Station. In November, 2014, it manufactured the first objects made off the surface of the Earth.
