Minecraft and Mathematics – STEM Life for the average eight year old has changed, a new world has opened up…MINECRAFT. Every evening around teatime, I have the joy of my son playing this game on the xbox with three of his friends from school. Now they don’t come round to play but meet up in a game world from the comfort of their own homes. As a regular listener to the verbal exchanges, I am fast growing to see educational potential in this piece of software. In January, I read with interest that a post primary school in Sweden, as even incorporated it into the curriculum. “Mummy, it is not violent or anything, there is no blood.
The dark side of 3D printing: 10 things to watch The 3D printer is a double-edged sword. It stands to transform technology and society for the better, but we also can't ignore the potential negative consequences. As with any new technology, it's easy to get swept up in the benefits of 3D printing. It opens up a world of new possibilities for all industries, and stands to lessen transportation costs, environmental impacts, waste, and reliance on corporations by enabling the maker movement. But 3D printers are still potentially hazardous, wasteful machines, and their societal, political, economic, and environmental impacts have not yet been studied extensively. To make sure you aren't thrown off guard by the conversations to come, we've compiled a list of 10 things you need to know about the dangers and potentially negative impacts of 3D printers.
Printrbot: Your First 3D Printer by Brook Drumm I designed the Printrbot to be the simplest 3D printer yet. There are some great kits out there - the Makerbot, the Ultimaker, the Prusa Mendel, and others - but none as small and simple as the Printrbot. This all-in-one 3D printer kit can be assembled and printing in a couple of hours. Other kits will not only take you many more hours to build, they will also have hundreds more parts, and they will cost more. EPUB 3 EPUB 3 was developed pursuant to a charter approved by the IDPF Membership in May, 2010. EPUB 3.0 was approved by the IDPF membership as a final Recommended Specification effective October 11, 2011, and superseded the previous release of EPUB (2.0.1). This page contains information about EPUB 3.0 which as of as of June, 2014 has been superseded by EPUB 3.0.1, which is now the current version of the EPUB standard.

The full list of the individual specifications comprising EPUB 3.0 is: An additional non-normative document describes:
Create Something. Donate Login Remember Me Create An Account 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. The range of the Bluetooth module actually was able to go out side my house and go out of the range of my WiFi before disconnecting so range is only an issue if you want to be more than 60-70ish feet from the robot.
3D Printing with Kinect EmailShare 44EmailShare 80 mm tall scan, printed with a Thing-O-Matic I’ve been working with 3d scanning for over two years now, building my own 3d scanners and writing code to work with commercial scanners like the Kinect. When I started my artist residency at MakerBot, I knew I had to combine 3d scanning and 3d printing. One of the first ideas we had was to set up a 3d photo booth at MakerBot to scan visitors.
