Ponoko has a very cool new service called Photomake. You draw something with pencil and paper and upload it to Ponoko, and they will turn it into a "real life product."
This means you do not need to use graphics software to make something. This significantly lowers the entry barrier for all creative people who can hand draw using pen and paper but do not know how to use design software.
