Express Yourself! Create Images & Light Them Up with the MagicShifter 3000 POV Stick

“Made with love and fairy dust.” The persistence of vision stick offers exactly what its name would infer, but it doesn’t really make sense until you see it in action, offering a very technical term in title for a whimsical device that does almost seem to operate as a sleight of hand or illusion. And while it […]

3D Printed Sculpture Showcases the Detrimental Nature of San Francisco’s Rising Housing Prices

While the Bay Area’s continuously growing tech bubble has led to a plethora of innovations for both San Francisco and the rest of the world, this boom has also caused a major upswing in the price of surrounding real estate, which has attributed to longtime local residents being driven out of their neighborhoods. In order […]

Ultimaker Releases Open Source Files for Ultimaker 2 Go and Extended

To open source or not to open source is a question that most 3D printer manufacturers are going to ask themselves at some point. I’ve heard compelling arguments both for and against, but at the end of the day it’s a business model that simply isn’t for every company. But whichever path a company chooses, […]

Keysforge: Easy, Automatic Production of 3D Printed Copies of High-Security Keys

While retinal and other biometric scanners are coming into play for some high-security applications, there’s still some ways to go before those are reliable enough for more common use–and so most secured areas rely on the age-old standby of the lock and key. The idea, of course, behind a lock is that it can only […]
