Twindom Offers Two New Products for Better 3D Printed Portraits

My favorite candy in the entire world is Twizzlers. I’m crazy about them…I get a big package of them every year in my Christmas stocking, and sometimes for my birthday; my parents even sent me off to college one year with a giant box of them! I don’t care how old I am, I will also […]

How many of you remember that episode of Seinfeld (yes, we’re playing that game!) where George has nothing to do at work–and characteristically wants nothing to do at any cost–but he discovers if he sits at his desk looking furiously annoyed all day everyone avoids coming to him because they assume he is terribly busy?

Let Everyone Know You're Important With Your Own 3D Printed Bust

Is there anything that signals importance more than a bust?

You Can Now 3D Print Your (Mostly) Naked Body Without Having to Show Any Skin

3D printed nude selfies were, let’s face it, an inevitability. The first time that I saw a company offering 3D printed selfie I said to myself that it was only a matter of time before naked versions started to show up. There have already been adult performers willing to have their bodies 3D scanned and […]
