Artist 3-D Prints Hermit Crab Shells With Tiny Cities On Top

April 15, 2019

This is a video of artist Aki Inomata discussing the 3-D printed shells she creates for hermit crabs that have little buildings and cityscapes on top of them. Basically, Aki starts with a CAT scan of an actual hermit crab shell to ensure it's an acceptable shape for a little crab to mash its butt into, then she 3-D models and prints the shell with a building or cityscape on the back. Do you think hermit crabs without cityscape shells are jealous of the ones that do have them? Personally I'm up in the air about it, but I have a backpack that looks like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle shell. "You're the coolest." Thanks, mom!

Keep going for the video, as well as an even longer one about the process.

Thanks to Ruby G, who agrees home is where the heart is.

    Now seeing this Disney is going to make a move based on the li'l people who live in these crystal buildings. They are getting pretty hard up for new material these days.

    I generally earn nearly $6,000-$8,000 monthly through the internet. It is actually satisfactory to very easily substitute my previous work salary, specifically considering I only do the work almost 20 hour or so each week in a home office.I dropped my job after operating for the same business enterprise for many years, I needed very trusted earnings. I was not interested in packages that miguide you to make you millionnare within few days you notice all over the net. Those are all type of ponzi mlm systems in which you need to first make prospects thereafter sell a product to friends and relatives or any individual so that they will be in your team. The most important part of working over the internet is that I am always home with the little ones and also enjoy lots of free time with my family members in various beautiful beaches of the world. Honestly,it is simpler than you would believe, all you need to do is submit a simple form to receive front line access to the Home Profit System. The instructions are extremely simple, you need not have to be a computer whiz, but you should know how to use the internet. It is as easy as being on Facebook. Here's the proper way to start >>

    also, much easier for them to get stuck on a random piece of debris on the beach or in the water and die. yay...

    Although for the people that keep hermit crabs as pets, maybe this would be fun?
