A start-up company is seeking funds through Kickstarter.com for its Orbit1 machine, an electroplater that allows people to plate just about everything made through 3D printing.

 

The company says that using Orbit1, a person can coat their works in metal, even gold, in three simple steps. First, they clean and polish their object, then they spray the conductive paint, then click start. They say Orbit1 will metallize a design, empowering a person with the Midas touch from your tabletop.
