The 3D printing of food is certainly a futuristic concept, but it’s also something that, at this point, not too many people are all that excited about. Sure, it’s awesome for making customized candies like the ChefJet does, or for adding a bit of flair to a cake, but the idea of one day eating a 3D printed steak, or 3D printed pear, doesn’t seem that appealing just yet.
I travel a lot and I like to take my media with me. However, I'm rarely end up at places with a strong internet connection and I don't like having to hook up my laptop to the TV. So a couple months ago I decided to build a portable media computer, and as a result, Mjölnir was born.
If you have a Raspberry Pi and big plans for it, one of the first things you'll need is a case for it. There are tons to choose from, but some offer durability, port access, easy-access to the board, and style. This week we're looking at five of the best, based on your nominations.
When I think about the world that we are now living, I have to (I literally must) think about open source technologies, open source frameworks and products such good that became excellent platforms to build your own distrupting software, or board. We are living the same situation with wearable devices, in such a way that I am inclined to think about all of this stuff and easily identify a cyclic, predictable behavior. Once a technology or a concept starts to become part of the traditional software (and hardware) stack, suddenly clones begin to appear; and there’s a strong chance that the first to appear (as the first clone, or even the original product) is open source.
L'impression 3D change radicalement notre rapport à la matière. Bien plus qu'une simple révolution de certains procédés industriels, elle donne enfin à chaque individu un pouvoir sur la matière : pensez à un objet et vous l'obtenez. Toutefois pour que cette révolution soit possible, il fallait un outil de conception 3D utilisable par tous, ce qui n'était pas le cas. Essayez d'ouvrir Solidworks ou même Blender et vous comprendrez la difficulté.
The team that is building the Novena project is launching a crowdfunding campaign around the Novena open hardware computing platform. Originally, this started as a hobby project but by popular demand, they have prepared a crowdfunding offering and so everyone can contribute to the interesting
This 3d printed video rig will give you many options for shooting the perfect video. There is room to mount all your accessories from lights to mics. It is mobile with two large handles to help steady your shot. This rig can also be mounted to a tripod and when combined with a iPad Mini it becomes a teleprompter.
Certains aiment prédire qu'un jour l'impression 3D de pièces métalliques sera accessible au grand public. Mais Jean-Michel Rogero, habitant de la région Toulousaine, a préféré prendre les choses en main pour tenter d'atteindre ce but.
Just this morning we covered a new product calledAstroPrint, which aims to allow people to wirelessly 3D print objects from their tablets, smartphones, PCs, and laptops. They run on a modified version of a Raspberry Pi, and allow for cloud slicing, gcode creation and organization of 3D designs. Only a few hours later, PrintToPeer has launched their Indiegogo campaign for a very similar product. They advertise as “Your 3D printer on the web”, and that is a pretty accurate description.
