Open Source Wedding Rings [update 1][update 2] I lost my wife’s wedding band a few years ago. She handed it to me while I was driving and asked me to take it to a jeweler to get it hammered back “in round”. Of course, I lost it immediately. My original wedding band I still have, but it’s always been a little unsatisfying. My ring finger is thinner than hers, and the pattern never quite matched where the original jeweler sized it down. Home Automation with Arduino (digital version) Home Automation with Arduino is a complete resource to start building your own home automation systems based on the Arduino platform. By using this product, you will learn how to automate your home using DIY home automation systems.

Google’s Location History Browser Is A Minute-By-Minute Map Of Your Life Quick! Where were you last Tuesday at 6:35 PM? If you’re anything like me, your answer is probably along the lines of “I… have absolutely no idea.” Most people’s brains just don’t work that way. But odds are, Google knows. They probably know where you’ve been most other days, too. the_dimka: codex seraphinianus in the late 70s italian architect, illustrator and industrial designer luigi serafini made a book, an encyclopedia of unknown, parallel world. it’s about 360-380 pages. it is written in an unknown language, using an unknown alphabet. it took him 30 month to complete that masterpiece that many might call “the strangest book on earth”. codex seraphinianus is divided to 11 chapters and two parts - first one is about nature and the second one is about people.btw five hundred years ago there was another book somewhat like that - voynich manuscript. take a look at some pages (click on image to see a bigger version) amazon sells those for 500 bucks or more you can read about it in wikipedia.i can’t even tell you how much i like stuff like that
Conference and Expo for Additive Manufacturing Professionals This event has ended. Hope to see you at a future event! 3D printing is impacting what we eat, wear, build, drive, fly, and shoot. Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo, “the” B2B tradeshow for the 3D printing industry, will continue its world tour in San Jose this September 17-18. The event, programmed by Hod Lipson, will feature two full days of conference sessions with two tracks to choose from. Interest in this emerging field is at an all-time high, with the inaugural New York City event attracting more than 3,000 attendees.
Mazzo di Fiori & the Next Generation 3D Printer by Joshua Harker I am an artist. I have become known for my pioneering work in the 3D printed medium & have a professional history in product invention/design & development. My art is about pushing the limits of form... an exploration into what can be made & how to accomplish it. My venture into this project is a direct extension of that. For the last 18 months I've been developing a new 3D printing technology to usher in the next generation of the 3D printing revolution in terms of quality, capability, cost, access, & ease of use. How to Make Everything Ourselves: Open Modular Hardware A modular system unites the advantages of standardisation (as parts can be produced cheaply in large amounts) with the advantages of customisation (since a large diversity of unique objects can be made with relatively few parts). Modularity can be found to a greater or lesser extent in many products (like bicycles and computers) and systems (like trains and logistics), but the best examples of modular systems are toys: LEGO, Meccano, and Erector (which is now the brand name of Meccano in the US). LEGO, Meccano and Erector are composed of relatively few elementary building blocks, which can be used to build various objects.
How Google and Nest could get the smart home all wrong Welcome to the Google smart home: You walk up your steps and use your Android device (or iOS app) to open your smart lock and signal to the network that you've arrived, whereupon your Nest thermostat turns the heat up to a comfy 71 degrees and Nest smart lights adjust the brightness to optimize energy use. Meanwhile, your Samsung refrigerator that now relies on Android -- earlier models having proven that the native Samsung smart appliance software just couldn't cut it -- sends you a notification to let you know you have just enough parmesan for tonight's recipe, but will have to buy some more next time you shop. Scratch that. It already noted that on your Google Doc grocery list.
Service Design Tools Design activities Co-designing Envisioning Testing & Prototyping Implementing ZEUS: world's first 3D printer / scanner / copy machine sep 06, 2013 ZEUS: world's first 3D printer / scanner / copy machine ZEUS: world’s first 3D printer / scanner / copy machine wouldn’t it be great to buy a 3D printer, take it out of the box, plug it in, and be able to use it right away, the same way you would with any other piece of consumer electronics such as computers and TV’s? engineers at AIO robotics have developed a solution that will now allow users to 3D scan, 3D print, 3D copy, and 3D fax objects from one device. entitled ‘ZEUS’, the all-in-one electronic device is constructed out of aluminum, powder-coated in a moonstone white, with black anodized side panels. the inclusion of a 7-inch touchscreen gives the machine a welcoming ‘consumer ready’ look. instead of usin plastic or wood, all linear components are also built using CNC-machined aluminum, including the XYZ-carrier, turntable and external shell. the structure of the 3D copy machine dramatically increases the quality of the prints, preventing deformation and heat soaking.
Students turn to 3D printing to create custom flexible resin skins for prosthetics May 8, 2015 | By Simon It’s no secret that among the many possibilities that additive manufacturing offers is the ability to produce low cost and customized 3D printed prosthetics - oftentimes with futuristic aesthetics that would otherwise be impossible to produce using traditional manufacturing techniques. Whether the prosthetics are for our four-legged friends, war veterans or children who were born with deformities, the use of 3D printing to help others have full functionality of their limbs has been one of the premiere feel-good stories that has come out of 3D printing since it hit the mainstream within the past few years. Now, a group of design and architecture students have taken that “customization factor” a step further and have been busy developing 3D printed prosthetic skins that allow a prosthesis wearer to instantly change the aesthetic of their prosthetic without the need to have multiple prosthetic devices. 3D printed flexible resin
