People can place their order through a free mobile app or from Normal’s flagship in New York City, and the earphones will be customized to fit each user’s ear, 3D printed, shipped and delivered anywhere in the US within 48 hours.
“We’re excited to be able to create accessible, tailor-made earphones that sound incredible,” explained Normal’s Founder and CEO Nikki Kaufman. “We’re using Stratasys’ 3D printing technology to build a product that is completely personalized.”
The earphones are engineered, 3D printed, assembled and shipped from Normal’s flagship store. The company has 10 Stratasys 3D Printers in use.
“The implications of 3D printing for a company like Normal are huge. It’s a game-changer for customized goods: the ushering in of a new era in manufacturing,” said Stratasys’ Vice President of Marketing, Bruce Bradshaw. “Today, companies can offer consumers customized products, in a time-efficient manner, made possible with 3D printing.”
