Commemorating Family Occasions

The Smiths by Tony Buser

The Smiths by Tony Buser

MakerBot’s own Tony Buser has been scanning and sharing his family on Thingiverse with quite possibly the most creative use of the new “multiple derivative” feature yet!  (Each person was scanned separately and then arranged together into the picture above.)  Tony has thoughtfully memorialized his family and friends with these scans.

The possibilities opened by cheap ubiquitous 3D scanning technology are nearly endless.  A 3D printed family portrait, a movie of 3D scans morphing from one month to the next showing how a person grows, replacing the pen marks on the door jamb for marking height, or maybe even a way to easily assemble as seamless family portrait without everyone being in the same location at the same time.1

  1. Also, who will be the first to upload a Tony BuSta? []

An Argyle Egg?!?

Argyle egg for Egg-Bot by HooDat

Argyle egg for Egg-Bot by HooDat

I have no idea why, but the thought of argyle eggs just strikes me as insanely funny.  Here’s how I imagine using them: Making a huge batch of them with matching pairs, putting them into a clean egg carton, and sneaking them into a grocery store.  With bonus points for making sure there was just one unmatched pair.

HooDat, you made my day!
