It’s a special day, MakerBot world. May 25 is the anniversary of the release of A New Hope (Star Wars Episode IV), the day chosen as Towel Day to remember Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy author Douglas Adams, and the day on which the Glorious Revolution occurred in Terry Pratchett’s Discworld.
That’s a whole lotta geek, so without further ado we wish you,
Happy Geek Pride Day!
Top Five Things To Make On Geek Pride Day.
Towel Hook by chapulina, so that you may always know where your towel is.
…any man who can hitch the length and breadth of the galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through, and still knows where his towel is, is clearly a man to be reckoned with. — Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, page 21 (in my copy)
The always popular Han Solo in Carbonite by gianteye. This has been downloaded over 1,100 times, but needs some refreshing. MakerCubed did a good job three weeks ago, and with a good color choice, I should add. Who’s going to try this today?
Will Langford’s Glasses and/or Waltorg’s Ultra Configurable Geek Glasses, and/or Hipster Geek Glasses by Beehive. It’s really interesting that glasses are associated with geekyness, and now we have the chance to make whatever kind of glasses we want. That’s like geek power, no?
Geek key chain by InnovationByLayers. BLING.
We all gotta eat, and a geek’s gotta sketch, amirite? The last thing on today’s list is MakerBlock’s gorgeous Pencil Case for 10 Pencils (that’s “exactly 10 pencils”, just so we’re clear). It looks awesome in PLA, and it’ll look fantastic crammed into the front pocket of your short sleeve button down.
