In a way, Printomatic satisfies one’s desire for instant gratification while keeping a copy of the photos in digital form. Best of both worlds, if you ask me.

Artist Turned Game Boy into a 8-bit Gun That “Point and Shoot” (and Print)

Give a talented, gizmo-inclined artist a Game Boy, a GB camera and a GB thermal printer, and what do you get? To be honest, we are not sure about what other artists will do, but for Dmitry Morozov, it was an opportunity to create a one-of-a-kind ‘firearm’ that literally lets you “point and shoot”. This electronic art, as we like to call it, dubbed GBG-8 gun is in fact a 8-bit instant photo gun made up of the aforementioned Game Boy components, along with Arduino, optical relays, a “long life battery” and a toy gun. The trigger of the hacked toy gun serves as the shutter button, where upon triggering, captures what’s in front of it and print them right there and then – in all its, low-resolution glory. The captured image is display on the game boy screen (in grey scale, naturally) before being printed out as an 8-bit image on a roll of thermal paper.

EKOCYCLE Cube Prints 3D Print Projects Using Post-Consumer Plastic Waste

while we are all excited by the prospect of 3D printing, we can’t help but to imagine the amount of plastic waste the world with 3D printing will generate. it is not going to be pretty on the global scale, since virtually anyone can start prototyping without giving a second thought and we probably have to live with this harsh reality, but the EKOCYCLE Cube 3D Printer you see here wants to make that process a little greener by using post-consumer waste such as plastic PET bottles as part of the printing material. well, of course, you can’t expect the raw materials to be 100% recycled materials; each EKOCYCLE filament cartridge contains 25 percent of post-consumer recycled materials which equates to about three assorted recycled 20oz. PET plastic bottles. Continue reading EKOCYCLE Cube Prints 3D Print Projects Using Post-Consumer Plastic Waste
