An exploitable is an image (or series of images) with large empty areas or speech balloons that are intended to be filled with humorous text.
Just in time for Pattywac’s mashup challenge, Alan Ecker has uploaded a Pony Template Blank. This may just be the very first thing uploaded to Thingiverse that was uploaded is a “blank slate” made available with the explicit intention of being hacked, mashed, and derived into something else entirely. I love this idea and really hope we see more of them.
There’s been a bit of mash-up madness on Thingiverse lately. The creations range from really useful to downright scary. What’s especially amusing is how some of these things pop into existence. I’ll call this the Ghostbusters phenomena. If you think of the Stay Puft Marshmallow man, he’ll magically appear.
“Gosh, I hope no one makes an octopus” POOF! There’s an octopus uploaded to Thingiverse!
