Are there something that have been stopping you from riding the 3D printing hype? Ah, I see. It must be the price, right? Well, if so, Obsidian from 3D printer maker, Kodama Inc, may just change your mind. But before get into the price, just look at this device.

While many of us reminisces about the tech of the bygone era by talking about it occasionally, video game engineer Chris Larkin went about recreating it. In Chris’s case, he have a special affinity with the classic Apple II computer which he had as a kid and so he decided why not build one since he was looking for some project to work on with a tiny self-contain $9 CHIP board? So, yeah, Chris not only recreated his favorite computer, but in miniature proportion. The result is an palm-sized Apple II computer, featuring an accurately painted 3D-printed enclosure, complete with a TFT LCD display and an Apple II emulator that allows it to function like an actual Apple II.

The iMac Pro Is The Most Powerful Mac Ever And Its In Space Gray

iMac was the machine of choice for creatives in its hey day, but since then, Windows have become equally apt, if not better, in dealing with graphics intensive tasks. True enough, I see many creatives today using Windows-based PCs as their main workhorse. But, it looks like the Cupertino tech giant has its sight set on regaining its glorious day with the newly announced iMac Pro. Yes.

Eighteen freaking cores. Wow. That’s mind-blowing.

There are so many laptop options out there that sometimes, we find it pointless to tell you that there’s another new one out there. But we heard there’s a new Microsoft Surface Pro and we also read that it is pretty dope in both performance and the look department. Anyways, if you are still expecting Surface Pro 5, well, don’t. It is not happening. Microsoft has removed the number and it is now just Microsoft Surface Pro. Marketed as the “most versatile laptop” (but it is more like a laptop/tablet hybrid, really), Microsoft said the new Surface Pro “has been redesigned from the inside out,” with the machine now boasting 50 percent more battery life than the 4 (up to 13.5 hours of use per charge) and 2.5 times faster than the 3.

The concept is nothing less than audacious, but the possibility is very real and while regular users may not appreciate the huge touch canvas, creative professionals could benefit from it.
