IT’S A TRAMPOLINE TENT
SO ONCE YOU’RE DONE BOUNCING AND HAVING FUN
YOU CAN SLEEP ON THE FUCKING TRAMPOLINE AND HAVE EVEN MORE FUN
Is this real? LAWLZ
Public Twitter Booths
I actually saw someone on a public phone the other day and it blew me away.. can’t wait to tweet from one of these! I’ll probably be over it 1 minute later and back on my Evo. This is from last year, but still pretty cool.
“Twitter really is everywhere now. This interesting device is a twitter booth for those poor souls that still need to get their hands on a smartphone but still want to keep in touch with their friends and famous folk out there in the realm of the social web.” (Quote: Walyou.com)
Is your Ikea desk missing a screw? Have you lost one of your earrings? Are all your forks dirty? Print another one! These are only a few of the possible applications of three-dimensional printing. Until now, 3-D printers have relied on casting techniques to produces copies of physical objects, but new technology from the Vienna University of Technology uses a light beam that hardens material according to direct specifications, allowing layer upon layer to be built in a small chamber until the object is complete. The new 3-D printer weighs a little over three pounds and costs $1,700.
What’s the Big Idea?
While 3-D printing technology is still in its infancy, researchers already see a number of possibilities for its use. Not only can 3-D printers make exact copies of small household items at a fraction of the cost, such as hearing aid components which require very precise specifications, but 3-D printers could revolutionize the design world by allowing individual users to modify already existing technologies. And by producing novel designs on small, household-size printers, a new micro-economy may be waiting in the wings. “We will continue to reduce the size of the printer, and the price will definitely decrease too, if it is produced in large quantities,” said Klaus Stadlmann, one of its creators at the Vienna University of Technology.
