 looks like it's worthwhile investigating - but it is still new.
printbite has been around for years and is a known proven quantity.

 interestingly in the comments of the kickstarter it looks like the
particular properties of printbite are down to thermal expansion.
i.e. the surface expands and contracts, having thermal characteristics
that lead it to contract at well below the glass point of PLA (or
other material).

 thus, as it cools it shrinks enough to "pop" the object off the bed.

 which is kinda cool.
