Spotted today in the Boing Boing Flickr Pool: these dazzling 3D-printed forms, created and photographed by Boing Boing reader Jessica Rosenkrantz of Nervous System, "an experimental design studio that uses new technologies to reinterpret natural phenomena."
These images show test prints for a new project Jessica is working on. "Each print is 4 to 6 inches," she explains. "Meshes generated by Processing. 3d-printed by Shapeways." Here's her shop, and here's her website. More images in her Flickr set.
If these are tests, I can't wait to see the final product.
Daren Schwenke's 3D printed blooming rose embeds a capacitive touch sensor -- a magnetic wire -- in one of the leaves, which trips an Arduino-controlled actuator that changes the rose's lighting and causes the petals -- 3D printed and then shaped over a hot chandelier bulb -- to splay open or fold closed.
A Boston University team have developed an acoustic, 3D-printed metamaterial whose topology is such that it reflects 94% of human-audible sound; the researchers' demonstration involves inserting a ring of this stuff in a PVC pipe and blasting a speaker down one end: light and air emerges from the other end, but sound does not.
Deities and Demigods is a storied resource book from the first edition of Advanced Dungeons and Dragons: between being copyright trolled by false claims of infringement on the Lovecraft estate (and a more valid copyright claim over the use of Elric of Melnibon mythos), and the general uselessness of gods and demigods to the vast […]
