What to do with a 3D Printer: Make Garden Tools This entry was posted on May 21, 2012 by Alex English. The gardening season is here and it's time to get out and work the dirt. Even very traditional home tasks and pastimes like gardening can benefit from a 3D Printer. I've got a few garden accessories that I've designed for myself to use in the garden this season. Hanging Garden Trellis Netting First, I needed a way to hang the trellis for my peas and green beans.

NINJA SPHERE: Next Generation Control of Your Environment by Ninja Blocks Your Ninja Sphere learns about you, and your environment. It uses data from sensors and actuators to build a model that can inform you if something is out of place. It can monitor temperature, lighting, energy usage, you and your pets' presence, and anything else you connect to your sphere. By using data from your devices, environment, and location your sphere is able to advise you intelligently and give you control only when you need it.

One of the most beautiful aspects of science ... is that while there is so much we can see and smell and taste, there is such a large universe full of things we can't directly observe. What's more, the phenomena we learn about in science class — magnetism, pressure, or chemical structure, to name a few — aren't simply present in some remote time or space, they're everywhere around us — a beautiful new world to explore. Imagine if we could see them as naturally as we see light or colour. the Tricorder project
OPENROV I there I live in London UK, and as far as can see you guys are not based in Europe so how can I get one fully assemble unit here in the UK, how much that costs with shipment and everything, it's any one in the UK using your product already?, please send or post any relevant information via blog or my email what ever is convenient for you, I love your openrov the best I have seen online so far, but a little more info is needed when it comes to buy it and maintain it especially when you are base at the other side of the ocean, your help it will be very much appreciated.

Making silica aerogel at home I followed instructions in the silica TMOS recipe from http://www.aerogel.org and successfully produced some small pieces of aerogel in my home shop. The two main difficulties are: 1. Getting TMOS or TEOS (the key chemical ingredient), and 2. Building a supercritical drying chamber. The components for the chamber can be bought from http://www.mcmaster.com or another source of industrial pipe fittings.
Build a Laser 3D Printer - Stereolithography at Home Here is how to make a Stereolithography 3D Printer. It is still a bit of a work in progress but so far it is working pretty well. This is mainly an experiment which started as a Delta Robot Stereolithography Printer but ended as a more traditional Cartesian Stereolithography Printer. "I'll be honest, we're throwing science at the walls here to see what sticks. No idea what it'll do." - Cave Johnson
