May Tradeshows

Maker Faire Bay Area 2018

Monoprice just wrapped up another great show at Maker Faire Bay Area. Maker Faire is an all-ages show for inventors, hobbyists, crafters, and tinkerers in San Mateo, CA. A playground for “Makers”, you can find anything from augmented reality to cheesemaking and robotics to giant soap bubble artists. Monoprice fit right in with its 3D printers. We showed off some of our newest 3D printers including the Delta Pro, SLA resin and Mini Pro 3D printers – all landing Summer 2018.

  • Select Mini V2 – Our #1 best-selling 3D printer. Perfect for beginners and able to grow with the user.
  • Delta Mini – Our newest addition to the family, perfect for fine detailed prints.
  • Delta Pro – The big brother to the Delta Mini that can print 2x as fast as the Select Mini.
  • SLA Resin 3D Printers – Not one, but two new SLA Resin 3D printers take 3D printing to the next level.
  • Mini Pro – Built upon the best-selling Select Mini, now with more features like auto-leveling and touchscreen.

We even sponsored the first ever Maker Faire Prop contest. The First Runner up, Zander Brandt, built a custom Starcraft II Command Center PC Case and received a prize of a Select Mini V2 and two rolls of filament.

Pepcom New York 2018

Pepcom is an evening geared towards media who are looking for the next best thing to write about. A couple times a year, we show off all the cool things that just arrived or will be coming soon. This time, we highlighted our upcoming STITCH Smart Home brand, new Monolith and Monoprice audio offerings, and the just released Mini Deluxe SLA Resin 3D printer. Media were particularly excited about the affordability and ease of use of the STITCH brand and the fantastic price point of the True Wireless earphones.

Highlights:

Monoprice MP Mini Deluxe SLA LCD High Resolution Resin 3D Printer + 250ml Red Photopolymer Resin

Expand your prototyping possibilities with ultra high resolution 3D Printing. The MP Mini Deluxe SLA LCD Resin Printer is a high resolution desktop machine that matches the print quality of large, industrial printers at a far lower cost. The MP Mini Deluxe SLA uses stereolithography (SLA) technology to achieve a professional print quality that plastic extrusion printers just can’t match. Stereolithography is the gold standard for accuracy and resolution in 3D printing.

STITCH Wireless Smart Plug with Energy Monitory and Reporting

This Wireless Smart Plug allows you to remotely control a lamp or small appliance in your home using your Android™ or iOS® smartphone or tablet. The plug communicates with your phone through wireless, so you won’t need any separate mesh network hubs or controllers. This allows you to control the plug by voice using your Amazon Alexa™ or Google Assistant voice control device, or with your smartphone from anywhere in the world at any time. It tracks and monitors energy usage and it can be scheduled to turn on or off at specific times or to change state after a specific period of time It supports up to 15 amps / 1800 watts of power at 120 VAC, 60 Hz.

Monoprice True Wireless Earphones

The Monoprice True Wireless Earphones are the perfect way to experience your music collection without the hassle of wires. Get powerful sound from a comfortable, ergonomic design for up to 3.5 hours of continuous listening. Easy link technology allows the earphones to pair immediately when removed from the case and the latest Bluetooth technology ensures a strong connection from up to 30 feet for skip free enjoyment of your favorite music. The Monoprice True Wireless Earphones are also IPX4 sweatproof rated so you can also work out with them.

Monoprice MP Soundstage 3 Bluetooth Speaker – Coming Soon

The Monoprice Soundstage3 is a powerful Bluetooth speaker designed to deliver exceptional sound quality with an array of connectivity. Driven by 125 watts of Class D power and featuring a 5.25” aluminum woofer flanked by dual one inch silk dome tweeters, the Soundstage3 packs a sonic punch that can fill any size room. The True Wireless Stereo capabilities enable linking to another unit for left and right speaker operation.
