Nothing major, and this was just a model from Thingiverse, but it’s astounded several of my colleagues. I have a feeling we’re about to go nuts with 3D printing, and that’s just the faculty.

Our MakerBot Thing-o-Matic got a new friend today, as we set up the Replicator that finally arrived yesterday. I don’t think it took too kindly to this, as it immediately got cranky, but they both had a busy day cranking out extruded plastic.
What was most exciting was the collective reaction of all the students that saw them. “Excitement” is an understatement, and I can’t wait to see what they start creating. if you’ve never seen one of these in person, you have to. It will absolutely change your perception of what’s possible.
Just “upgraded” my mom’s cell phone. Fitting that it has a pill reminder — clearly the right phone for her.
