Adafruit’s been on a tear with its 3D printing projects lately. Their newest creation is a 3D printed replica of the helmet worn by Daft Punk’s Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo. It has strips of programmable LEDs inside that are visible through the visor.
A couple of years ago we featured Amanda Ghassaei’s 3D printed records. Here’s another one of her 3D printing projects. She made a Processing script that turns greyscale image files into 3D files. When printed, the resulting piece looks and works like a lithophane – an uneven surface that only reveals the image when illuminated from behind.

The New York Public Library (NYPL) is working on an ebook borrowing app. Some of the ebooks will come from public domain sites like Project Gutenberg. The problem with many of the public domain ebooks is that they lack (decent) covers.
The last time renowned Brit geek Gav Thorpe designed a fantasy wargame, it was called “Warhammer Fantasy Battles.” It takes a time commitment roughly equivalent to a full time job, and it costs an arm and three warp-mutated legs.
I am a fan of some Asian food, at least when it’s been Americanized. I am not such a fan of some of the strange foods served in Japan, they seem rather gross to me. Case in point: McDonald’s in Japan is set to roll out a new milkshake for fall that is called Purple Sweet Potato, or at least that is what the name translates too.
Folding bikes only fold down so far. It is usually limited by the chain. You can’t fold that. So why not ditch the chain? That’s what Bygen’s Hank Direct Bike has done. Instead of a chain, or even a belt, it has a direct-drive system.
Do you miss your childhood and the video game characters that went along with it? Well, we can’t deliver all of them from every platform, but now is your chance to bring SEGA’s Sonic and Tails back into your life – in blocky, pixelated form.
If Industries – the folks behind the cool arcade coin slot belt buckles – are back with another set of geeky accessories. These ones look like the proximity mine and the remote mine, two of the weapons from the N64 shooter GoldenEye 007.
Have you ever wondered who would win a fight between two characters from different games? I have, I think that Prophet from Crysis would decimate them all, personally. On a more mundane, I’m not going to kill everyone front, who do you think would win between Mario or Minecraft Steve?
