Taking place on 20th-21st October this year, the 3D Printshow will be London's first major 3D printing trade and consumer event. We will be hosting over 70 exhibitors, ranging from major manufacturers and software developers to design studios, architects and medical companies. Our aim is to showcase the extraordinary range of applications 3D print technology has and demonstrate to the consumer how it will affect their lives in the future.
We are keen for our visitors to engage with the technology in any way they can and leave with increased knowledge and understanding. For example we will be setting up a full 3D body scanner, and a large design bar with a row of iMacs and experts on-hand to offer tuition on
design principles. We will also be running a series of educational workshops and seminars, ranging from a master class in using 3D print to improve your business to a class on 3D fashion and jewellery design. In order to demonstrate the creative applications of the technology a dedicated gallery space will house conceptual art and sculpture from approximately 40 different international artists, including prestigious designers such as Neri Oxman and
Assa Ashuach. We will also be holding London's first 3D print live show, featuring fashion, accessories and gadgets as well as the world's first 3D printed band.
The event will be held at The Brewery, 53 Chiswell Street, London, EC1Y 4SD.

My UK publisher, Head of Zeus, has published the official tour schedule for the British tour for Walkaway, with stops in Oxford (with Tim Harford), London (with Laurie Penny), Liverpool (with Chris Pak), Birmingham, and the Hay Literary Festival (with Dr Adam Rutherford). Hope to see you there!
My publicist just found an extra box of the cool promotional Walkaway multitools, and she’s generously offered to give them to the next 100 people to reserve tickets to the May 7th Walkaway event at Chicago’s Royal George Theater, where I’m presenting with CARDS AGAINST HUMANITY creator Max Temkin (current ticket-holders, don’t worry, you get […]
Carol from Cheapass Games writes, “In our continuing quest to bring back the very best classic Cheapass Games, we’re creating a new boxed set of Button Men, our strategy dice combat game. This time around, the characters will appear on cards, rather than pin-back buttons, but since they’re all 1950s era gangsters, the ‘button men’ […]
Bamboo has lots of uses beyond just being panda food. Things like bikes, roads, scaffolding, and musical instruments are made from the fast-growing grass. But unless you are participating in a tropical-themed LARP, you probably wouldn’t want a shirt made from bamboo stalks. So why do bamboo bed sheets make any sense? Because yarn extracted from […]
If you want to work in tech, but don’t have any desire to code web apps to help businesses sell things to other business, you might want to consider a career in cybersecurity. Judging from the apparent complete infiltration of Russian hackers in American cyberspace, it seems fair to speculate that there’s a major shortage of […]
All moms are different. But all moms like getting flowers on Mother’s Day, and that’s a fact (not, however a fact we can document in any fashion.) Instead of getting chewed out for forgetting to call her on the second Sunday of May, you can take care of it ahead of time with Teleflora’s flower […]
