3Doodler: The World’s First 3D Printing Pen

Left Field, Tech

WobbleWorks LLC. has created the first 3D Printing Pen and are looking for Kickstarter backing. 3Doodler is the world’s first and only 3D Printing Pen. Using ABS plastic (the material used by many 3D printers), 3Doodler draws in the air or on surfaces. It’s compact and easy to use, and requires no software or computers. You just plug it into a power socket and can start drawing anything within minutes.

Head to the link below to check out the Kickstarter page for this product and contribute if it is something you would like to see come to be.

Patrick Carney of The Black Keys Changes Name to Justin Beiber??

Left Field, Music

biebercarney1

Patrick Carney is the drummer for The Black Keys. While at The Grammy’s last week he was very vocal about his disdain for the music of Justin Bieber. Bieber soon after said that Carney deserved a slapping for his critical words. It seems that the war is far from over because as of yesterday Carney changed his name to Justin Beiber on Twitter and is now the focus of insults and verbal attacks by Beiber’s fan base. Beiber himself has yet to respond but I don’t care. Do you? Patrick is entitled to his opnions and I’m glad he is having a little fun with the situation. Click the links below to get some Black Keys albums if you have yet to hear their fantastic brand of music. I’d post some links to BEiber music as well but no.

Happy Valentine’s Day from Fizmarble

Left Field

untitled

Happy Vday from Fizmarble. If you’re into it. If you’re not then Happy Anti-Vday or Singles Awareness Day or Thursday or whatever you want. It’s become a holiday full of pressure and requirements and I’m not a huge fan of what it has become. I am a fan though of the concept. A day to fully celebrate love. It should be an everyday thing indeed but a day to celebrate something as big as Love isn’t so bad. Hopefully it is a day full of more positivity than negatives and that can help counter act all the crazy stuff and horrible things we are presented with via the news or life in general.

Love is a many splendored thing. Love lifts us up where we belong. All you need is love!

Emergency Alert System (Zombie Edition)

Left Field

So someone managed to hack a network in Montana and play a false Emergeny Alert System message during programming on a local affiliate. It played on the CW on the Great Fall KRTV channel. While that may not be too big of a deal in and of itself what made it more notable was that the message decalred that ‘dead bodies were rising from their graves’. You can watch videos of it above and below. Nice prank.
