As 3D-printed objects and smart home technology become even hotter product categories, it makes sense that Philips is rolling out an app-controlled 3D-printed lamp.

Philips announced a collection of new products on Friday — from a new app-controlled light bulb to a kinectic-energy-powered light switch — but we’re most entranced by its 3D-printed lamp line.

The lamp comes in two styles that work with the company’s Hue line, the Entity (pictured above) and the Tempest (pictured below, in pendant form). Users can create lighting effects using more than 16 million color variations on the lamp and control the settings via an accompanying app. Lighting can also be programmed based on the time of day and personal preferences.

Some people are afraid of spiders. Others are afraid of robots. Heaven help the person afraid of both who stumbles upon this creepy-crawly 3D-printed robotic spider from Robugtix.

The T8 is made nightmare-inducing not only by its 3D-printed and somewhat realistic-looking skin but by the preternatural movements that mimic living eight-leggers. According to Robugtix, that’s thanks largely to the company’s “Bigfoot” inverse kinematics engine, which uses math calculations to figure out how the robot-arachnid should move.

Using 26 servo motors and a wireless RF-based connected remote control, the 2.2 lbs robot is not exactly autonomous, but when you send it in a direction, it figures out how to walk that creepy way. Read more…

Breaking a bone is unpleasant all around — and having to wear a smelly, clunky plaster cast is like getting kicked when you’re down. At least, that’s how Jake Evill felt after breaking his hand. He told Wired that his plaster cast felt “archaic.”

Evill, a recent graduate of Victoria University in New Zealand, wants to update the process of healing of broken limbs with something a little more modern: 3D printing

Evill created the Cortex cast, a breathable, lightweight, recyclable and washable exoskeleton that mimics the body’s trabecular, the small honeycomb-like structure that makes up your inner bone structure Read more…

3D-printing studio Shapeways unveiled a new app Wednesday that allows customers to create their own 3D-printed rings without the need for sophisticated 3D-modeling software.

To create a ring, just create and upload a flat, black-and-white pattern to Shapeways’ Custom Ring App. The flat pattern will be printed in a ring shape, as you can see in the examples below:

Rings cost as little as $ 2.30 and as much as $ 130 or more, depending on the material chosen. If creating a ring from scratch is intimidating, you can choose to modify and print a ring from a range of pre-existing templates.
