The homebrew 3D printing magnates at Makerbot (proprietors of the Thingiverse catalog of printable objects and the open Makerbot 3D printers) have just hired an artist-in-residence. Marius Watz is a sculptor, who says "My goal for my MakerBot residency is to produce a set of models for my upcoming exhibition at ROM for Kunst og Arkitektur in Oslo next month. As part of that process I will be developing a new Processing library for 3D model building, to be released as Open Source along with a series of models I'll publish on Thingiverse in the MakerBot spirit of openness. You can already get a preview on Flickr, I can't wait to add more!"
Makerbot have a second artist-in-residence lined up, and are open to submissions from future potential candidates for the post.

16 thousand people have watched this ambient yet vaguely sinister YouTube video alerting viewers to the existence of “illuminati pyramid” clocks.
