    But now, she's ready for her big-screen close-up.

  3. Little Girl’s Amazing 3D-Printed Arm Only Cost $50

    Now it won't cost you an arm and a leg for an arm or a leg.

    When Faith Lennox was born, she had no circulation in her left forearm and doctors were forced to amputate just below the elbow when she was only nine months old. Kids like Faith outgrow prosthetic limbs quickly and they're very expensive - but now 3D printing has changed all of that.

  7. 3D Printed Rainbow Hummus Is Here, Doesn’t Need to Justify Itself to You

    To quote Victoria McNally, "That is literally a Drunk Uncle joke."

    Instructables member 3DigitalCooks uses icing colors and a Pinya2 (a 3d printer designed to work with liquids) to craft mazes, teeny-tiny buildings and beautiful, Lisa Frank-esque designs out of hummus. Why? I don't know, dude, why is the sky blue? Why do we wake up every morning? What if God was one of us? Accept that we can probably build a city out of hummus in 2015 but we don't have flying cars yet and move on with your life.

But why destroy the original? Well we don't want any Thomas Rikers running around, do we?

  12. Seven-Year-Old Gets a 3D Printed Prosthetic Stormtrooper Arm From the 501st Legion and e-NABLE

    *Sniff* What? There's just something in my eye, OK?

    Prosthetic limbs are usually too expensive to be practical for most children (one in 1,500) born with partially formed arms. 3D printing has the capacity to not only lower the cost significantly and put prosthetics in reach for people in need, but also raise kids' spirits with some really personalized designs like this stormtrooper arm from the 501st legion.
