Here’s yet another sign that we are living in the future: 3D Systems has come out with a new line of 3D Printers that can literally print custom shapes using sugar as a medium. This means no more boring sugar cubes – you can now have sugar in complex polyhedra, concave anti-prisms, infinity loops, and other fun Archimedean solids.
Everything you see on this page was made with a 3D Printer…
The makers of this machine are marketing it as the “must-have companion for the professional baker, cake master, and high-end event and restaurateur.” Once these 3D Sugar Printers become affordable for the average consumer, I plan on getting one for my kitchen. But I wonder… do they make 3D Printed cavity fillings to go with it? 🙂

French illustrator Jean Jullien draws witty illustrations that point out our absurd addictions to technology, social media and our smartphones. The artist is famous for mocking our obsession, which cuts us off from the real life, leaving us alienated and lonely.
Besides his satire, Jullien also uses social networks as a political platform. He is widely known for creating the “Peace for Paris” symbol which has become a worldwide sign of solidarity with France after the Paris attacks.
Playing in the sandbox used to be my favorite activity as a small child. I remember making pretend volcanos, rivers, lakes, and tunnels in the sand. Well, researchers at UC Davis have come up with a way to bring those imaginary landscapes to life with interactive 3D projection technology. The results are simply breath-taking!
This amazing interactive sandbox responds to your actions, and can be built at home using common-place technology.
All it takes is a digital projector and a Kinect.
The projector displays an interactive topographic map, with contour and elevation in real-time.
You can make hills and valleys, and the computer changes the projection to match the landscape!
Museums around the world are starting to create their own interactive sandboxes…
It’s not only fun… it’s a great way to teach kids about geography!
If you want to make one of these at home, all it takes is a digital projector, a Microsoft Kinect, a sandbox, and some sand… Then download the software and instructions from UC Davis. I can’t wait to try this!
