About Us

An old picture of one of the first 3D printed prototypes.

As a child, I would always choose the flight response when confronted with a bug. As I became an adult, I started feeling that someone who can legally buy alcohol and cigarettes shouldn’t run away from little bugs anymore. So, armed with a tissue, I’d show them who’s bigger. But then I got even older…and realized that being the bigger person wasn’t actually about being tougher, but rather doing the right thing – maybe that was maturity. 

The next time I saw a bug, I picked up a cup instead, took a few deep breaths, and…nope. Wasn’t happening. Feeling sad about my lack of progress as a human being, I thought to myself: if only this cup was on a long stick then maybe adulting wouldn’t be so hard.
