â€œIâ€™ve talked to people who have walked into hacker spaces and seen a row of printers all printing Liberator parts,â€ Cody said as his roasted chicken dish was being placed in front of him. Hacker spaces are collaborative locations where exceedingly nerdy people get together, pool their money to buy equipment and space and experiment with technology, usually including 3D printers. Hacker spaces have popped up in cities across the world, including New York, Washington, D.C., London, Helsinki and Lisbon.
Cody says that there are even Liberators being printed in China right now, which is the reason that thereâ€™s a Simplified Chinese version of the â€œreadmeâ€ (instruction) file in the download package. â€œIâ€™m actually meeting a girl later tonight to translate it better.â€
