7 TED Talks on the wonder of 3D printing From ordering movie tickets to booking a dentist appointment, mobile and web apps have made the tasks of daily life easier. But there are some things that an app can’t do. Standing in line at the pharmacy is one of them. Lee Cronin: Print your own medicineIn today’s talk, Lee Cronin asks: “Could we make a really cool universal chemistry set? In essence, could we app chemistry?” With his team of researchers at the University of Glasgow, Cronin has created a 3D printing application that allows scientists to print out laboratory equipment specific to the experiment they wish to run — something they’ve called “reactionware.” At TED, we love sharing stories of 3D printing and its rapidly developing power to make new things possible. Lisa Harouni: A primer on 3D printing So what exactly is 3D printing? Klaus Stadlmann: The world’s smallest 3D printer Klaus Stadlmann built the microprinter, the smallest 3D printer in the world.

MakingSociety | Resources for Open Source Hardware Entrepreneurs Cubehero: Work and collaborate on 3D printed projects Amazon teams with 3D Systems, Sandboxr to 3D print custom video game characters for you July 8, 2015 | By Simon With over $20 billion spent annually on video games and video game content, it’s clear that today’s video game options have come a long way since the days of Pong and Pac-Man. Unsurprisingly, many gamers aren’t just kids these days as many of the parents themselves grew up playing Nintendo and have their own dedicated video game consoles or computers. In our current age of on-demand 3D printing, it’s also become quite common for enthusiastic gamers to have various characters from their favorite games 3D printed, too. Today, Amazon has announced that they are teaming up with Sandboxr and 3D Systems to offer fans an entirely new way of customizing 3D printable figurines from directly within Amazon. The online retailer giant will be offering a “Personalize Now” widget which will allow customers to customize the characters from some of their favorite games. Those interested in trying out the service can do so by heading over to the new Amazon Sandboxr store. inShare1

3D Printed Wireless Tank In this Instructable I will show you how to make a wireless tank that you will be able to play with someone else or just use it a base to create bigger and better tank. This tank uses Bluetooth modules connected to Tera Term to send commands to the Arduino. I used IR Leds that are used in Lazer tag guns (links in the next step) so you can battle with your friends or just use it to explore the world a couple inches off the ground from your computer. Uses an IPhone's camera with the Skype app to connect to a PC so it can be viewed and controlled remotely.

Les makers envahissent l’Europe Open hardware, hackerspaces, Internet of Things, Quantified Self, makers, Fab Labs, 3D printing… semblent tout droit venus des Etats-Unis. L’écosystème y est structuré, avec des lieux phares (Noisebridge, NYC resistor, Techshop), des rendez-vous réguliers (Maker Faire, Open Hardware Summit, Hardware Startups meetups), des personnalités écoutées (Mitch Altman, Dale Dougherty, Chris Anderson, Kevin Kelly), des investisseurs intéressés (Lemnos Labs, Bolt, PCH), des formations spécialisées (D. School de Stanford, NYC ITP, Parsons) et une explosion du nombre de projets hardware se lançant par crowdfunding sur les plateformes américaines. On trouve les mêmes éléments en Europe, qui est en fait à l’origine de bien des aspects du mouvement. Hackerspaces (nés d’ailleurs en Allemagne), événements cultes (CCC, FOSDEM), mais beaucoup moins de projets hardware devenus produits. Mais la communauté se structure à grande vitesse.
