Apple could be a mail order company, but they know that having retail presence is necessary to add the human touch to new technologies. Similarly, Blu-Bins are kiosks where businesses and people from all walks of life can purchase 3D printing services. We're Kinkos for 3D printing.
As a mostly brick-and-mortar business we're able to educate, collect feedback, and establish conversations that are not possible online; making on-demand custom manufacturing easy for anyone. Through this hands-on approach we've accomplished what other companies have found impossible (Staples, UPS, and Makerbot to name a few). Uniquely positioned to lead the way in delivering cutting edge technologies to a wider public, Blu-Bin will become the most recognized brand in the new world of on-demand creativity and manufacturing.
3D Print Shop Holdings owns the Blu-Bin brand, manages Blu-Bin.com (under construction), and has a controlling stake in the LLCs that run Blu-Bin brick and mortar locations.

Who is NAO? NAO is an interactive companion robot.
58 cm in height, NAO is our first humanoid robot. He has continually been evolving since the beginning of his adventure in 2006.
Currently in his 5th version, about 10 000 NAO have already been sold throughout the world.
Their experience with NAO
In France, at a specialised centre of the "Autistes sans Frontière" association, NAO and Lucas have forged a special bond. Impassive and always positive, NAO encourages Lucas without judging him. Since their encounter, Lucas is calmer and his contact with adults has become easier.
The Australian "rUNSWift" team from the University of New South Wales (UNSW) carried off the Standard Platform League cup at the RoboCup 2015 competition (robotics world cup event) after having explored and deployed all NAO's capabilities within the framework of their university degree course.
Since July 2015, a new type of hotel has opened in a theme park. NAO was selected to provide the reception and conciergerie services. He welcomes the guests and provides them with information in a variety of languages.
7 NAO joined the "ROBOTS" show created by the renowned choreographer Blanca Li in 2013. The first show in the world with robots in the starring roles, it has already charmed European and North American audiences.
Who is Pepper? Pepper is a human-shaped robot. He is kindly, endearing and surprising.
We have designed Pepper to be a genuine day-to-day companion, whose number one quality is his ability to perceive emotions.
Pepper is the first humanoid robot capable of recognising the principal human emotions and adapting his behaviour to the mood of his interlocutor.
To date, more than 140 SoftBank Mobile stores in Japan are using Pepper as a new way of welcoming, informing and amusing their customers. Pepper also recently became the first humanoid robot to be adopted in Japanese homes!
Interactive, progressive and autonomous
Pleasant and likeable, Pepper is much more than a robot, he is a genuine humanoid companion created to communicate with you in the most natural and intuitive way, through his body movements and his voice.
Pepper loves to interact with you, Pepper wants to learn more about your tastes, your habits and quite simply who you are.
Pepper can recognise your face, speak, hear you and move around autonomously.
You can also personalise your robot by downloading the software applications that take your fancy, based on your mood or the occasion. Dance, play, learn or even chat in another language, Pepper adapts himself to you!
Your robot evolves with you. Pepper gradually memorises your personality traits, your preferences, and adapts himself to your tastes and habits.
The emotion at the heart of the robot
Pepper has been designed to identify your emotions and to select the behaviour best suited to the situation.
Based on your voice, the expression on your face, your body movements and the words you use, Pepper will interpret your emotion and offer appropriate content.
He will also respond personally to the mood of the moment, expressing himself through the colour of his eyes, his tablet or his tone of voice.
What is the ROMEO project?
Romeo is a 140 cm tall humanoid robot, designed to explore and further research into assisting elderly people and those who are losing their autonomy. Romeo is the fruit of collaboration between numerous French and European laboratories and institutions.
His size was determined so as to enable him to open doors, climb stairs and reach objects on a table.
Begun in January 2009, the ROMEO project had four major goals for the development of robotics in France:
Constructing an open and flexible mechatronic and interactive software platform
Developing a personal assistant robot with surveillance functions and appropriate Man-Machine interfaces
Developing a robust platform for research
Laying the foundations for an industrial robotics ecosystem
The ROMEO project, split into two phases, was initiated within the framework of a Single Inter-ministry Fund (FUI) project financed by the DGCIS, the Ile-de-France region and the City of Paris under the aegis of Cap Digital.
A robot that doesn't stop growing
In just a few years, Romeo has gone from being an ambitious vision of robotic assistance to a robot known throughout the world, the first models of which were ordered by French and European laboratories.
Romeo's physical platform was entirely assembled by SoftBank Robotics. There have been two versions, as was planned during the initial drawing-up of the project, with improvements to his spinal column, design, battery and solidity.
The second phase of the project allows different groups of researchers working in collaboration with SoftBank Robotics to explore a range of solutions for providing home assistance or assistance within specialised structures.
OPI has partnered with Re-Vision, a leading global provider of mobile self-scanning solutions, to offer a new generation concept – the My-Scan Omni-Channel Platform. It addresses the challenges of enhancing the experience of shoppers that the retail industry is facing on a global scale.
