Anyone who has ever used Apple earbuds knows that they look nice and feel terrible. Honestly it seems like those earbuds are made for robots. I’m going to go test a pair on R. Maker in a minute.
There are two awesome things here.
1. If you want to use your in-ear headphones, you still can. There’s nothing permanent here.
2. Because you’re making these on your MakerBot, you can adjust the strap around your head to be the exact right size by printing more or fewer parts. Or, I suspect, since the curve of each section is constant, you could slice one piece at any point, as long as the angle of your cut is right.
This is a Work-in-Progress on Thingiverse, but here’s more of J.C. Karich’s work. I particularly like the G.I.P.S., a 3D-printed global positioning system which gives you an indirect path toward your destination based on different kinds of “intuition”. A perfect tool for the wanderer, and it looks like a rock that you might pick up on a stroll through the woods.
