Who the hell doesn’t want an action figure of themselves? Think of all the bath-time fun you can have when you 3D print yourself…
Love the idea of classic tattoo art but shy of the commitment?
We’ve found the perfect alternative in the tattoo chair.
While the debate rages over whether the 3D printed handgun has the potential to be the super weapon the media will have us believe, Japanese design studio Monocircus have been busy making far cooler shit with a 3D printer, namely this ballin’ bow tie.
Warning: feels alert.
Aside from the fact this is the most glorious looking duck we’ve ever seen (here we were thinking they turned brown post cute duckling phase). Buttercup (who is a male duck), was born in a high school biology lab with a backwards left foot. When the teachers presumably couldn’t deal with his gammy foot they shipped him off to a bird sanctuary.
The duck would have been doomed if it wasn’t for his buddy, Mike Garey who owns Feathered Angels Waterfowl Sanctuary where he now lives. Mike recommended the amputation which ultimately saved Buttercup’s life. He then contacted Novacopy, a 3D printing company who then created a 3D CAD representation of the prosthetic foot, using Buttercups’ sister Molly as a model.
The technology is super exciting and the wee guy is so stoked with his new found ability to waddle (despite the fact he’s doesn’t exactly have a masculine name/his only mate appears to be a teddy with a pink bow tie).
