Over on his Facebook page, Dave Tree linked back to an Transformers at the Moon news article which has identified a new and intriguing Hasbro trademark. Keep in mind, this is a Transformers themed trademark, but it could have potential ramifications across many different Hasbro brands, I would think.
The trademark is for something called “ALLSPARK” which seems to be a software program for designing and customizing digital files for 3D Printing.
This is what the trademark states specifically:
Category: Computer software for creating, designing, modifying, customizing, sharing and saving computer generated representations capable of being printed by a three dimensional printer to create physical objects, namely, jewelry, ornaments, arts objects, artifacts, household goods, toys, games, hobby models, accessories, office products, and various other consumer products
Again, this is obviously geared specifically towards the Transformers brand, but who knows how it could spread throughout other avenues of Hasbro product. Don’t forget, we previously reported on Hasbro’s deal with “3D Systems” for this same purpose, so there are certainly elements of Hasbro that are leaning towards further development of this technology.
Something to keep an eye on for sure. Check out the full article right here and thanks to Dave Tree for catching this.
