    Gadget holiday buying thread..

    http://www.makershed.com/products/ma...nner?click=yml


    I doubt anyone here would have a need for something lke this, but FYI. I think it'd be pretty cool to scan old action figures and print backups for your own army...or to make newer copies of older worn out items.

    or even replacment parts or ornaments..

    That's actually pretty cool!

    I wonder how good the results would be. Obviously needing a good 3D printer would be a must, but I wonder how good the scans would translate over.

    since posting this, I looked it up myself.. most of the reviews say it's sadly terrible and that scanning with a kinect camera might get better results.. but yeah, I'm also looking into getting a 3D printer next year.

    thinking about the xyz printer. it's cheap enough for a first entry..

    I thought this was a reveal about what's on the Inspector's Christmas shopping list for Penny and Brain.

    I don't know that I picture him doing his own Christmas shopping...

    I can. I can just imagine him turned loose in Macy's.
