    This is a set of 3-D printed thorn dice designed by Shapeways user ceramicwombat. You can get plastic versions for as low as $27, but that makes you a cheap-ass. Just save up the $82 and get a decent metal set or don't get any at all. Just think about how badass your next Du... / Continue →

    These are the conceptual 3-D printed 'Cortex' casts envisioned by designer Jake Evill (not to be confused with the Jake EVIL, who wants to see us all dead). They're awesome because if you break your arm a frienemy can't draw a penis on your cast. I've had to be casted up thre... / Continue →

    This is Buttercup the duck. He's a dude though, not a chick. Although I guess all ducks were chicks at one time. "No, they were DUCKLINGS." Damn it all to hell. Anyways, Buttercup was born with a backwards foot that prevented him from walking normally and hurt, and nobody ... / Continue →

    This is a 3-D printed replica of a remote mine from the Nintendo 64 classic Goldeneye 007. It has magnets in the back so it can be stuck to metal surfaces and it has light-up LEDs and a beeper when activated. Man, GoldenEye on the N64 really brings back memories. Mostly of h... / Continue →

    Instructables user dragonator (damn yeah you are!) went and made himself a 3-D printed GlaDOS robotic arm ceiling lamp and decided to share his knowledge with us so we can ALL make our own GlaDOS robotic arm ceiling lamps. That was very selfless of him. I just finished buildi... / Continue →
