Tracy Ong and William Ngo are both architects and love architectural models that you can actually touch. In the last time these physical models got replaced by digital models.
With the power of 3D printing, Tracy and William are bringing back the physical models. They started a company called microscape and turned to crowdfunding for financing it.
Through Kickstarter, they have already hit their target of 8.000$. They are offering a complete model of New York City. The model is 3D printed in small tiles and you can choose one of 24 tiles with a mayor landmark sign.
