About us

Peecho

Mission

Peecho's mission is to become the primary infrastructure for the transformation of digital information into other forms.

From bits to atoms

We allow virtual information to be accessible as tangible objects in 2D or 3D, but only produced when and where needed: with respect for the planet.

Why?

On demand transformation of digital assets obliterates the need for mass production. Local manufacturing eliminates transport. The earth profits.

Peecho
