DIY BMO Portable Retro Console: RaspBMO
We’ve seen a BMO toy with a LEGO case and another one that appears to have a wooden case. Mike Barretta’s take on the living console has a 3D printed case and buttons. That’s right, this BMO works much like a Game Boy in that you use the buttons on its body to play.

3D Printed Miniature Buildings: Ittyblox
A few years ago, we featured fan-made 3D printed replicas of some of the buildings in SimCity 2000. You can still download and print those designs, but if you don’t have access to a 3D printer, Ittyblox are nice alternatives.

3D Printed Curved LEGO Blocks: Curvy Thing is Awesome
How awesome is 2015? In less than two months we got a way to unboil eggs, a backup band in a box and now curved LEGO blocks that you can print. This cancels out the hotdog in a chicken bun.

LEGO X Converts Creations into 3D Models in Real Time: Body and Soul
Last year, LEGO launched Fusion, which are LEGO sets that you build and then import virtually into simple games on your mobile device. LEGO X is the adult version of Fusion.

This Seven-Year-Old Gets a Clonetrooper Prosthetic Arm
The E-NABLE network is very cool: it uses 3D printing to make basic, low-cost prosthetics for children who are growing too quickly to qualify for regular ones. Their latest recipient is Liam Porter from Augusta, Georgia, who was given the limb by John Peterson, who built himself a 3D printer for the purposes of working with E-NABLE.

3D Printed Geeky Laughing Buddhas: What is the Sound of One Han Shooting?
Tap into the force of Luck with Chris “muckychris” Milnes’ 3D printed geeky Budai statues, which swaps the jelly bellied deity’s head with characters from Star Wars and other sci-fi franchises.

3D Printed Batman Costume: Holy Stiff Abs Batman!
Stevie Dee’s 3D printed Batman Arkham Origins costume isn’t as polished as the 3D printed Samus Aran costume that we saw last year, but it still looks awesome. And you can have one. Stevie made the 3D files on his own, then sent them to Tundra Designs to be printed and finished.
