Autodesk, Mattel to bring the magic of 3D printing to kids

We guess it was inevitable. When smartphones and tablets became the hot tech toys, kids become the next target of device makers. Now that 3D printing is the buzzword, it's only a matter of time before children become the next big, or in this case, small, customers. Autodesk, one of the foremost players in the 3D software scene, and Mattel, one of the biggest toy companies, are joining forces to do just that. Though, for now, kids are still safe as the two have yet to reveal concrete products from this partnership.

LEGO Tatooine Mini-build set shown off before launch

LEGO will be introducing a new Star Wars set in the near future, another joining its already expansive set of Star Wars offerings.

It is the Tatooine Mini-build playset, and we have now got some looks at the build, showing exactly what fans can expect when it arrives.
