    Don't look scandalized. You're on the Internet.

    Gone are the days when everyone would sew their own clothes, build their own houses, or, in this case, whittle their own sex toys from wood they chopped down themselves. But if you're looking for just the perfectly tailored fake penis to pleasure yourself with, then take heart! You don't have to go to Etsy for that shit anymore.

  2. High-Tech “Origami” Folds In Oven, Kinda Like Shrinky Dinks But Way More Awesome

    It's a magical world, alright.

    I don't know about you, but when I was a kid I could not get a handle on Shrinky Dinks. Every time I popped one into the oven it would contort itself beyond all recognition. These cut-outs from MIT do the same thing when exposed to heat -- well, sort of. Instead of getting all twisted and gross, they fold themselves into awesome shapes.

  4. Your Speedo Is Not Hydrodynamic Enough, Wear 3D Printed Shark Skin Instead

    "3D-printed synthetic skin-nado" just doesn't have the same ring to it.

    Sharks can swim incredibly fast due to "denticles" on their skin, which are microscopic scales that cover their entire body. As puny humans, we are inherently jealous of sharks and covet their underwater skills. So a group of researchers got together to make their own version of denticles, just to stick it to sharks. Those stupid, majestic sharks.

  5. The Lix 3D Pen Is a Small Stylish Way to Draw in Three Dimensions

    What would you draw in 3D?

    In their above video, Lix creators Ismail Baran, Anton Suvorov, and Delphine Eloïse Wood say that the problem with other 3D pens is they're too bulky and frankly unattractive. The Lix hopes to change that with a small, beautiful aluminum body that looks to be just a little larger than most traditional pens.

  6. Entire Village Constructed In One Day Using Giant 3D Printer

    To be clear, a human sized village. Not one for ants.

    The latest development in 3d printing? Providing shelter for the homeless or refugees displaced by natural disasters or war. A small ten-residence community of cost effective homes recently sprung up in Shanghai, and thanks to 3D printing, constructing the village only took a day.

  7. You Can Print a Prosthetic Hand for $50 That’s Better Than One That Costs $42,000

    For when you want to feel less like A MONSTEEEEEER!

    Being born without a left hand really sucks. Jose Delgado Jr, however, is pretty used to it at this stage in his life, and has decent enough insurance that he didn't need to pay the full $42,000 sticker price for his prosthetic device. But as it turns out, he actually prefers a much cheaper prosthesis that you can make yourself with very minimal effort.

  8. We Could Watch This 3D Printed Stop Motion Bear All Day And We Will

    And you can't stop us!

    A lot of people are worried that CGI will replace stop motion animation because it's less time-consuming and ultimately less expensive. If this little guy is any indication, however, then stop motion will never go away, because there will always be someone willing to put in a ridiculous amount of effort to make it happen.

  10. Things We Saw Today: Wow, I Didn’t Know There Are No Female Characters In Adventure Time!

    Things We Saw Today

    ...at least that's what you'd think if you looked at McDonalds' line of Adventure Time Happy Meal toys, which has only male characters and is marketed "for boys," while the Paul Frank monkeys are "for girls." Princess Bubblegum, Marceline, Lumpy Space Princess, etc. must have been figments of my imagination this whole time. (Serious Eats)
