dreamboxThe world’s first fully automated 3-D-printing vending machine, dubbed the Dreambox, will be available for use in downtown San Mateo soon as its makers are busy learning how to grow their business at Boost VC, an incubator for young entrepreneurs.

The Dreambox kiosk will help anchor a pop-up retail site at the former Collective Antiques building on Third Avenue, part of the campus of the Draper University of Heroes.

The pop-up retail store should open in a couple of weeks and will feature the Dreambox, a vending machine that users can print almost any object in 3-D.

Customers can watch their creations made on the spot for a modest fee depending on the size. The largest object the machine can print now, however, is about 7-by-9-by-5 inches.

The vending machine can even turn 3-D images of a person into small figurines.

The box was invented by three students at the University of California at Berkeley, one who studied engineering, the other business and the third computer science.
