Sulka Haro, best known for his work with Sulake on Habbo Hotel, has joined Makielab.
"I’m super excited about the company, and very happy about the other founders – Alice, Jo and Luke are all awesome," Haro said on his personal blog. "We’re planning to do beautiful, exciting things."
Founded by Alice Taylor, Makielab is working on its first project that will allow users to create customisable 3D printed toys.
"Makielab will take elements from the founders' passions and blend them into an exciting new system of play, 3D printed toys, and customisable content," states the offical press release. The project is expected at the end of the year.
The team also includes Luke Petre, whose experience covers both Facebook games and tools for the LittleBigPlanet franchise. The company's website also lists "science fiction writers, innovators, game designers and makers" as advisors.
