    Mink Printer Lets You 3D Print Custom Makeup At Home

    The premise behind Mink is simple: you choose the kind of makeup you want to produce, specify the color, and manufacture it directly from a desktop-sized printer inside your home. No need to spend hours trying to find the closest shade to the eye shadow you saw on Cara Delevingne in a magazine — any makeup you want is always just a couple clicks away. According to Mink founder Grace Choi, all types of makeup, from that powder foundation to that cream […]

    Lix Is A Portable, Professional-Grade 3D Printing Pen

    As much as we love the 3Doodler’s ease of use, we have to admit, the things it lets you churn out aren’t always the prettiest creations. If you’re interested in producing elaborate 3D objects, you’ll be better served learning 3D modeling and picking up a 3D printer instead. That may change soon, however, with Lix, a 3D printing pen that lets you fashion some professional-looking creations. Just like other 3D printing pens, it lets you draw sketches in the air, extruding plastic […]

  • M3D Micro Is A $299 3D Printer

    M3D Micro Is A $299 3D Printer

    Chances are, we won’t see mass adoption of desktop 3D printers for a long while.  Not only will the price need to go down severely, we’ll likely need a massive public library of downloadable 3D designs to spare folks from having to learn 3D modeling from the ground up.  The M3D Micro is a step towards that direction. With prices starting at $299, it takes consumer 3D printers to a new level of accessibility, making price a less-daunting obstacle than […]

    Mark One Is World’s First Carbon Fiber 3D Printer, Costs $5000

    As awesome as today’s desktop 3D printers are, they’re just not that useful for building actual parts and tools. I mean, you can’t exactly replace a broken car part with 3D-printed plastic, can you? That won’t be an issue with the Mark One 3D Printer, which gives users the ability to print carbon fiber, nylon and fiberglass objects.  For real. That’s right, mad scientists can now make real usable parts for doomsday devices straight from their desks, rather than merely […]

    Staples Easy 3D Offers Commercial 3D Printing In-Store

    The era of cheap 3D printing is upon us.  That is, if you’re willing to make do with the less-detailed and size-limited results that can be produced with home 3D printers.  If you want industrial-quality creations, you’ll still need an industrial 3D printer.  Soon, you might be able to get just that from your local office supply store with the Staples Easy 3D.

  • Sony HMZ-T1 Puts 3D Right In Your Face

    Sony HMZ-T1 Puts 3D Right In Your Face

    I am not a big fan of 3D movies.  Partly because it’s unnecessary extra cost.  Mostly, though, I really just can’t sit through one without throwing up (hence, my unadulterated love for 2D Glasses).   The Sony HMZ-T1 “Personal 3D Viewer” might leave me a convert, though, with its promise of 3D minus the headache-inducing crosstalk. Instead of wearing stereoscopic glasses, you wear that monstrosity on the picture over your face.  The first of its kind (according to Sony, anyway), the […]

    BFB 3000 Brings Affordable, Fully-Assembled 3D Printing

    While some companies have built home 3D printers for cheap, they’re far from the robust plastic-shaping machines that $50,000 commercial versions usually are. Bits From Bytes is the latest company to bring the function to consumer homes with the BFB 3000, a fully-assembled 3D printer designed for schools, hobbyists and small businesses. How affordable is it? The printer itself retails for $3,000, which is considerably cheaper than what similar things are normally selling for. If that still sounds too steep […]

    Cupcake CNC Gives You A 3D Printer For $700

    How cool would it be to have a 3D printer at home?  Can you imagine the kind of buffoonery you can concoct with one of those things in tow?  Assuming you’re the kind of dork who likes to design 3D models, you can literally be printing your own batch of plastic toys right from the comfort of your own garage (or your mom’s basement, whichever the case may be).  Maybe, you’ll even end up with one cool enough to get […]
