Photo: Shapeways Venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz plays the investing game different from much of its VC cohort. Rather than scattering its money around a relatively large number of startups, the Silicon Valley firm places big bets on a handful of companies and industries. Today, Andreessen Horowitz is placing a very big bet, $30 million, on Shapeways and 3-D printing. Shapeways is doing for manufacturing, what the internet did for self-publishing, making it accessible to everyone, says Chris Dixon, the Andreessen Horowitz general partner who led the firm’s investment in the New York City-based company.

EV3 Build Environment and Compilation - CyPhy Lab - Confluence Instructions on how to install the EV3 build environment and how to compile and upload the EV3 source code.

Setup 3D Relief from BumpyPhoto Those of you that thought the 3D printed sculptures of unborn children were a bit strange (creepy) will probably get a kick out of this: 3D reliefs from 2D pictures. A company called BumpyPhoto will take your uploaded photo and make a 3D relief of it so that the subject matter of the photo stands out. With headquarters in Portland, Oregon and London, UK, theses picture poppers are making an international impression. The reliefs are printed in a plaster-like hard resin in 24-bit color and their detail is not bad. It’s not great; not as good as the picture you upload, but not bad. The bigger the relief, the more accurate it looks.

Close the Incubators and Accelerators, Open FabLabs and MakerSpaces instead - SiliconAfrica.com - Africa Tech News Africa needs more people with the skills to fabricate something than additional people with oratory prowess.

Hacking the Lego NXT - Part 1 Before we start with this slightly tangential series of posts, let me give a word of advice to those who saw the word “hacking” in the title and immediately thought, “HE IS GOING TO HACK INTO SECRET FILES!”. Firstly, any democracy should not have secret files, but that’s for another post, and secondly, “hacking” is what I define as a skillset: the ability to alter the main function of something, be it hardware or software, to suit what you want to do with it. Henry Dyer (@Direthoughts) did a nice piece of hacking, for example, on those Apple Store iPads.
First "scan to print" 3D printing shop in France Jan.16, 2013 After the first 3D printing shop announced its opening in Paris, last week another 3D printing shop is opened in France near Toulouse. Digiteyezer teamed up with Nailloux Fashion Village and Open Studio and presented an amazing attraction during the Sales week from Jan 9th to Jan 12th in Nailloux. Digiteyezer installed its EASYtwin 3D photo-kiosk in the Open Studio store and this "scan-to-print" solution, named Alterego, had been used for scanning and printing 3D figurines of consumers in a winter sport suit. From idea to a company: Prototyping and manufacturing on a Makerbot 3D printer Jan.21, 2013 Square, owned by Twitter inventor Jack Dorsey, is a handful mobile wallet app that offers sales data to small businesses. Square is famous for its white plastic card reader, a device that lets small businesses use phones and tablets to accept credit cards. Chris Milnes found Square card reader is extremely useful for his business, but he noticed this small card reader tends to spin and twist while swiping credit cards. "I love using the Square Card Reader but there's nothing to prevent the card reader from spinning freely in the headphone jack. The result is fumbling (in front of customers) and worse, bad card swipes." noted Chris.
