Saw this over at Tested recorded at Maker Faire 2016. Researchers at the Galileo University in Guatemala have created a robot's body with remote control via an Oculus DK2 headset and Perception Neuron motion capture system allowing for almost a conscious form of telepresence.
We all know by now that before we throw away plastic six-pack rings we should cut them apart so animals won't choke on them, but that doesn't solve the problem of animals trying to eat them. Saltwater Brewery in Florida has taken a 3D-printed step toward fixing that problem with edible six-pack rings.
Mother's Day is this Sunday, and with that comes obligatory pampering, phone calls, flowers, jewelry, and visits. But what if you just can't swing a plane ticket this year? Groupon wants you to send your mom a 3D printed you, and it's more than a little disturbing.

File this under, "Things We Didn't Know We Needed Until We Saw Them". Not only is this 3D design by Gambody incredibly detailed both inside and out, but the StereoLithography (STL) files to make one yourself are available for download!
Youtuber Mehdi Sadaghdar a.k.a ElectroBOOM is know for his occasional on screen electrical mishaps, quirky takes and minor explosions. Frankly, it's a wonder he survives some of his builds. Today, he takes a look at 3D how 3D printing works and how to 3D print .... a BOMB!
Blender is a free and open source 3D animation suite. It supports the entirety of the 3D pipeline—modeling, rigging, animation, simulation, rendering, compositing and motion tracking, even video editing and game creation.
The latest 3DMark for the PC has been released. Along with a few changes and an updated interface for 2016.This version adds a VRMark preview that show cases their upcoming virtual reality benchmark.

Jordan Reeves was offered a chance to create her own prosthetic arm through KIDmob's and 3D software company Autodesk's Superhero Cyborgs program in San Francisco, and she designed something that just might make the other kids so jealous they'll be disappointed with their own two standard-issue arms.
We've seen any number of 3D printed body parts for both animals and humans, but a team from St Vincent's Hospital, Melbourne, is taking us into the future with the Biopen, which can customize 3D printed cartilage as it's needed.
Prosthesis devices have been around for decades, and the technology improves each year to the point where they are lifelike and can function almost as well as a natural limb. But what about those who still have all their parts, but need help using them?
Stumbled on this 3D video compiled for what looks like a number of different ocean aquariums. The quality is excellent, but make sue you select 1080p for resolution if your player doesn't default to that. Oh - and you need your red/blue glasses.
If you have or know a kid, you know they spend a lot of time drawing. And some of what they draw is a truly unique window into their brains, isn't it? Mattel's ThingMaker 3D Printer promises to turn your child's drawings into actual toys they can play with!
