Last month we checked out Dr. Moddnstine’s modern PC in a ’90s tower. It turns out that he found a 1978 General Electric CRT TV in the same heap as the tower, and he couldn’t let that go to waste either.
Raumfeld may not be a well known name here in the U.S., but they’ve been making high end audio gear in Germany since 2008. Recently, the company started selling its premium wireless audio systems here in the States.
Even though the name ManCan sounds like a portable bathroom device, it is actually a beer keg that you can take anywhere. Imagine taking an afternoon hike and stopping for a breather as you serve yourself an ice cold beer straight out of a keg.
Thingiverse member Targ was inspired by a fellow designer dutchmogul’s 3D printed rattle mace and made a pair of sword rattles for his baby. Each sword is made of five pieces. Targ printed all of them using PLA filament, with the exception of the jewel, which is made of Taulman’s T-Glase filament.
Targ also 3D printed the little balls that give off the rattling sound.
It’s no surprise to see strange foods and themed eateries turn up in Japan. The latest is a Sailor Moon-themed pop-up café that will be opening in Tokyo for a limited time. The Chibiusa Café will be open from April 16 through June 19, and among the items on the menu for fans of the series is this wacky hamburger.
Exactly what is in the burger we don’t know, but the image tells the tale.
The folks at Dinosaur Egg Farm want to raise awareness for wildlife preservation groups while making a bit of money for themselves as well. And what better way to remind us that life is precious than with stillborn dino plushies?
DARPA has awarded contracts for a new program it’s calling “Gremlins.” But before you get all excited about the government funding murderous creatures that start as adorable Mogwai that turn bad if you feed them too late at night, DARPA’s Gremlins are unmanned flying drones that can be launched and recovered by a C-130 in mid-air.
DARPA wants the unmanned aircraft to be launchable by bombers and perhaps even smaller planes.
We’ve seen the Raspberry Pi 2 stuffed inside the case of the original Game Boy to make a retro handheld gaming sytem. Redditor bentika did the same but with the $5 Raspberry Pi Zero. The tiny board made the project cheaper, but no less complex.
Bentika used a 3.5″
Artori design has come up with an amazing bookend and shelf that celebrates super women. These two superhero designs are perfect for fans of Wonder Woman and other women who kick butt. Both pieces feature a silhouette of a female superhero demonstrating her superpower, which is to hold your books up.
The design on both the bookend and the shelf is really striking and full of action.
Set and forget cameras like action cameras and dash cams expanded the applications of video cameras. But action cameras can be pricey, while dash cams are not versatile. If you’re looking for a cheap, user-friendly and open source alternative, check out Armstart’s WiCAM.
WiCAM measures about 1.3″x
Master modder Ben Heck wanted to have a portable and compact dumb terminal to test single board computers, development boards and whatever else you may call them. It sounds like a simple contraption – it’s basically a keyboard and a screen with an HDMI input – but since Ben decided to reuse old devices and materials it ended up being a somewhat complicated project.
Ben used the screen and driver board from a Motorola Atrix laptop dock, and stuffed those and the other electronics into an old medical toolbox.
It’s a tired joke, but there’s a real risk that mass adoption of 3D printing and 3D modeling will equate digital piracy with physical theft. Now it turns out you don’t have to swipe a 3D file to copy a printed object.
April Fools day may be behind us, but that doesn’t mean we can’t continue to enjoy some late discoveries from the Internet’s favorite prank day. Among the many wacky items that turned up on ThinkGeek’s site yesterday is this one that I’d actually like to own.
Yep, that’s a 25-foot-tall Colossal Titan from Attack on Titan.
3D printers are cool because you can make stuff with them that you can actually hold and touch. I assume that the home or office of everyone who owns a 3D printer has stacks of tiny plastic whatnots that serve no purpose.
I’m not sure what to think of cats. I’m pretty sure as a species they are quite insane. I once saw my brother’s cat jump from the top of a massive pine tree just to spite the dog who had chased it up there.
