MakerBot has just opened its first retail store on Mulberry Street in lower Manhattan -- a great neighborhood, by the way, and a perfect place for a 3D printing store. The store includes many wonderments, including a 3D photo booth, where you get your head scanned and then printed out.
MakerBot and ShapeShot have joined forces to provide a 3D Photo Booth experience for the 21 st
century – a chance to capture and create a 3D image, but not just any image, but a 3D portrait and
replica of your face! In a few minutes, a scan is made of your face and displayed on a screen. Serious or
funny expressions are immediately captured using ShapeShot’s 3D face data that can then be used to
print out a 3D replica of your face! The 3D portrait is a cool souvenir, preserves your loved ones face
forever, and is the perfect gift for birthdays, bar or bat mitzvahs, and holidays. Customers can also get a
3D bust of their baby, friends, and the whole family.

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 […]
