3D printed meat: just the thought alone probably has your mouth watering right now. I know mine is, but I’ve eaten nothing but saltines for the better part of a week because I’m too lazy to go to the grocery store and too poor to order delivery.
Anxiety: we all experience it. And what better way to help alleviate that feeling than with a 3D-printed, articulated fidget slug? I can’t think of anything. Granted, I’m not trying to think of anything, but I have to save my brainpower for more important things like what’s for lunch.
Because dinosaur feet make everything better (googly eyes, too, but this isn’t about them), Thingiverse user melgrubb created 3D-printed dino feet to support a flatscreen television. That’s cool, but he should have also printed little t-rex arms hugging the television from the sides.
Designed and sold by 3D printing shop Thin-Air 3D, the Sticky Note Bot 2 (SNB2 for short) is a modular desktop organizer in the stylish form factor of a little robot. Now, if only it could do some of my actual work for me instead of just sitting there holding paper and pencils.
Korean 3D printing company Glück produces the Sculpia printing platform. And in this video, it demonstrates the platform’s capabilities by creating an army of humanoid robot body parts. “Finally,” I imagine Skynet thinking to itself while making plans to mass produce a whole line of Terminators.
To ensure tabletop role-playing games are inclusive to all, designer Sara Thompson has created a line of Combat Wheelchair miniatures that feature adventurers in wheelchairs. The characters are available as 3D printing files for £5 (~$6.50) or metal or resin models for £15 (~$19.50) in Strata Miniatures’ ‘Dungeons and Diversity’ collection.
Designed and 3D printed by Etsy shop MomLifeIn3D, these LEGO minifig head organizers each store up to 100 heads, so you can keep your LEGO domes easily identifiable and accessible. Gone are the days of sifting through buckets of brains trying to find the specific head you’re looking for.
Because 3D printing offers a glimpse into the future, Jón Schone of YouTube channel Proper Printing used the technology to print a car rim that can successfully be driven on without failing and causing a horrific accident.
Meet the Cryptide, the brainchild of German designer Stephan Henrich, who set out to design a shoe inspired by cryptids that could be entirely 3D printed. Interesting design perimeters. The shoe is 3D printed via selective laser sintering (SLS, in which a high-power laser forms tiny particles of polymer powder into a solid) using a thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) material, so they aren’t rigid and painful like the entirely-too-small wooden clogs my dad brought me back from a business trip to Holland.
Because why not make every day Halloween, HELIAN is selling these 3D Printed Flexible Finger Extensions on Amazon (affiliate link). The gloves feature long articulated fingers reminiscent of Freddy Krueger’s that triple the length of your existing fingers, presumably so you can reach the television remote without straining yourself.
Because nightmares come in all shapes and sizes, this particular bad dream happens to come in the shape and size of a drill and screwdriver bit holder that looks like a pair of dentures. 3D printed by Etsy seller MacGyverDood, $50 will get you a pair of empty dentures, and $70 will get you the dentures with a 100-piece screwdriver and drill bit set so you can fill it with your most frequently used “teeth.”
Dream it, and you can achieve it. And apparently, YouTuber Enos Camare dreamed of the world’s smallest power tools – a 1/12 scale cordless Makita impact driver and circular saw and made them a reality. Clearly, these are an absolute must for any dollhouse home improvement projects you may have, and my dolls are finally going to get the finished basement they deserve.
You know what your Google Home smart device has been missing? Muscles. Mine? Mine has been missing ever being taken out of the package after I received it as a gift because I don’t like being listened to all the time.
Make no bones about it, this t-rex skull tape dispenser is officially the coolest tape dispenser I’ve seen. Made and sold by Etsy shop Meow3DStore, the 3D printed dispenser is available in a variety of colors and sizes (standard is a surprisingly large 5″ x 4″ x 3.6″) and is really going to bring a touch of prehistoric times to my office, which I feel it’s been missing.
Rémy Vicarini and his cat Cathode have made a name for themselves on the Internet. Not because his kitty does tricks or anything, but because Rémy likes to dress Cathode up in tiny, custom-made helmets. I’m not sure if they actually offer any protection, but it’s not like human cosplay armor does either.
