Matthew Hartloff

From an early age I’ve always loved globes. I love how you can put a whole world in your hands. I’ll always stop to look at a globe. Unfortunately, there isn’t really that much that has changed with globes in 50 years which always disappointed me. There’s so many cool things you can do, if only I could make globes! Well… ‘globe making machines’ are hugely expensive. As a software developer working at ProtoLabs, a prototyping company, I created a prototype for a new type of globe. A globe that can by fully customized. And lets put the Earth, the Moon, and Mars on them. Let’s put stars and pictures and drawings on them. Let’s make them 1 inch and 24 inches! Let’s make awesome globes!

Brian Lukis

Brian has a background in art and software. He’s excited about the customized globe’s potential for displaying 360 pictures. For sports teams, weddings, vacations, whatever they’re all great for displaying on a sphere. Also, from ProtoLabs he adds a much appreciated artistic eye to the whole endeavor.
