Update: Ulrich sez, "It has now come to our attention that Artur was not the first to figure it out. The original design and printed object were created by Ulrich Schwanitz who confirmed to us that Artur's solution is correct. Make sure to check the video, it will blow your mind even if you know how it works."

But others see value in perfecting the slight of hand and showmanship associated with a perfectly executed routine. We’re firmly in the latter camp. And now, we’re giving you the ability to put a few parlor tricks up your sleeve with the Penguin […]
Bluetooth speakers may be convenient to use, but many of them just aren’t that powerful. Sure, it may be fine if you’re seated in front of the speaker. But move across the room, and you may strain to hear what’s coming from those tiny drivers.There’s a reason why the G-BOOM Wireless Bluetooth Boombox (now $79.99 in the Boing […]
