Angry Birds + Box = Angry Box

Angry Birds + Box = Angry Box

We have seen our share of geeky cufflinks around here, like the USB cufflinks a while back. I personally have no need for cufflinks. The last time I held a set of cufflinks was in the late 80’s when my cousin got married, and I didn’t know what they were.

Zoybar TOR 3D Printed Guitar Looks Cool and Doesn’t Sound Half Bad Either
If you ask me, the uses for 3D printing technology keep getting more and more impressive. Take, for example, this guitar that had its body parts manufactured using a 3D printer. If you watch and listen to the video below of Bård S D’s open-source Zoybar TOR guitar, I think you’ll be impressed with what he was able to do with a 3D printer: Not bad for something that was modeled in the digital world, then printed, eh?
