For a local con last week, a group of friends and I dressed as gender-bent characters from Sherlock (I […]

Make Sure Your Cat is Battle Ready With 3D Printed Cat Armor

House cats may not seem like the warrior type. Lazy, self-centered, and prone to diving under beds at the first sign of an enemy vacuum cleaner, cats don’t exactly come to mind when you think of valiant battle steeds.
