Discovery of Thousands of Unsecured 3D Printers Is a Big Problem Discovery of Thousands of Unsecured 3D Printers Is a Big Problem

Security experts have identified thousands of instances in which owners of 3D printers have made their devices available online and without the need for authentication. That certainly makes remote access to 3D printers convenient, but wow, what an awful idea given the tremendous potential for abuse.

New Research Takes Us One Step Closer to a Bionic Eye New Research Takes Us One Step Closer to a Bionic Eye

For the first time ever, scientists have 3D-printed an array of light sensors onto an eyeball-shaped surface. Eventually, a scaled-up version of the device could restore vision to the blind, or even improve the vision of sighted people.

Judge Extends Defense Distributed's Ban on Publishing 3D-Printed Gun Plans Online Judge Extends Defense Distributed's Ban on Publishing 3D-Printed Gun Plans Online

A U.S. district judge in Seattle extended a ban preventing Austin, Texas-based Defense Distributed, which designs and releases digital blueprints for small arms that can be produced by 3D printers and CNC-milling machines, from continuing to do so until a lawsuit by 19 states and the District of Columbia is resolved.

You'll Want to Go Drinking With This Life-Sized, 3D-Printed Tyrion Lannister You'll Want to Go Drinking With This Life-Sized, 3D-Printed Tyrion Lannister

That’s what I do, I drink and I print things. A 3D printing enthusiast has unveiled his latest creation, a life-sized version of Peter Dinklage’s Tyrion Lannister from Game of Thrones—which now gets to chill in his backyard drinking booze and sharing bawdy tales by the fire. Only don’t let him get too close. He might…

Turn Your Xbox Controller into a Racing Wheel With This Clever, 3D-Printed Upgrade

Mastering a racing game is a lot easier with your hands on a steering wheel instead of a tiny thumbstick, but after shelling out hundreds of dollars on a console and $60 on a game, do you really want to cough up another c-note for a racing wheel? If you’ve got access to a 3D printer, you could make this cheap rack and…

This Page-Turning Kindle Contraption Is Straight Out of Rick and Morty

Not since Rick and Morty’s butter-passing robot has there been a more hyper-specific, purpose-built device than perhaps Alex Mikes’ automatic Kindle page turner. Instead of having to raise his arm to tap the edge of the screen while reading in bed, a simple click of a wireless remote makes the attached contraption do…

AC Lung, Space Stairs, 3D Guns and the Quietest Place on Earth: Best Gizmodo Stories of the Week AC Lung, Space Stairs, 3D Guns and the Quietest Place on Earth: Best Gizmodo Stories of the Week

August 2018 rolled in with a bang, literally, as explosions rocked Caracas, Venezuela on Saturday during a speech by President Nicolas Maduro—and government officials later said bomb-carrying drones were to blame. If the accounts of an attempted assassination using unmanned aerial vehicles is confirmed, the New York…

The Battle Over 3D-Printed Guns Is Getting Serious

Five years ago, a lot of people thought Cody Wilson was a wild-eyed fanatic. The New Yorker described his rhetoric about making blueprints for 3D-printed guns available to anyone on the internet as “divorced” “from any practical reality.” Yet here we are in 2018, and Wilson’s company, Defense Distributed, is still in…

An Aspiring Rocketeer Built This 3D-Printed, Underwater Jetpack

Taking to the skies with a rocket strapped to your back is still a dangerous idea, despite how Hollywood typically portrays the stunt. So a product design student in the UK created a safer way to fly—under water—with a jetpack that can propel a swimmer at speeds of up to eight miles per hour.

I'm in Awe of This Four-Foot Nerf Bazooka That Fires Pool Noodle Rockets

In recent years, Nerf has added some gigantic blasters to its lineup, at times necessitating the need for a shoulder strap. But they still can’t compare to one of YouTube’s Ryan & David’s recent creations: a four-foot long custom-built bazooka that fires oversized darts made from pool noodles.

Genius Photography Hacker Makes Adapter to Attach Giant Zoom Lenses to the Game Boy Camera Genius Photography Hacker Makes Adapter to Attach Giant Zoom Lenses to the Game Boy Camera

When it was released 20 years ago, it didn’t matter that the Game Boy Camera took terrible, low-res, black and white images. It was a digital camera kids could buy for just $50, and the fun factor far outweighed the device’s technical limitations. Even today there’s still a rabid fanbase for it, including designer …

I Want to Super-Size Every Classic Lego Set I've Ever Owned

Matt Denton has been putting his 3D printer to good use again, possibly the only good use for those plastic-extruding machines. He’s super-sized all the pieces in Lego’s 1979 Technic Bulldozer set, which required over 600 hours of printing to recreate all 372 parts.

This Real-Life, Coin-Shooting Mario Block Is My New Retirement Plan

Stressed about job security? Worried about making ends meet? Super Mario might be a plumber, but do you ever see him fixing pipes? No, and why would he when his world is filled with random blocks that spew gold coins? Apparently hoping for an early retirement, hacker Jonathan Whalen attempted to build a real-life…

A Breakthrough in 3D Printing Liquids Could Lead to Squishy, Flexible Gadgets

The most common types of 3D printing involve either extruding melted plastic or using a laser to solidify tiny particles, layer by layer, to slowly build up a solid object. But researchers at the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have found a way to radically change that process by 3D…

The World’s Most Impractical Chess Set Can Fit Inside Your Wallet

If your wallet serves as more of a toolbox than a place to stash a few bucks, alongside a flat-pack knife and credit card-sized multi-tools, you can also slip in this super tiny, 3D-printed chess set. Compared to playing rock-paper-scissors, it’s a far more civilized way to make important decisions.

The First 3D-Printed Steel Bridge Looks Like It Broke Off an Alien Mothership The First 3D-Printed Steel Bridge Looks Like It Broke Off an Alien Mothership

The plan to 3D-print a bridge in mid-air was always bonkers. How could a technology best known for creating flimsy prototypes and personalized action figures be used for permanent construction projects? Well, the team at MX3D in Amsterdam just answered all of the hard questions and revealed it: the world’s first…

Showering Under a Water-Spewing Dragon Head Fulfills More Fantasies Than I Can Count

When affordable 3D printers first hit the market, many predicted the machines—inspired by Star Trek’s replicators—would change the world as we know it. Many years later, the world doesn’t feel all that different, but now that I can shower under a water-spewing decapitated dragon, I’m declaring 3D printers humanity’s…

It Took Almost 10 Days to 3D-Print This Giant Millennium Falcon Model

3D printers haven’t quite ushered in a new industrial revolution, but every day it seems there’s another irrational reason why you might consider buying one. As this soothing timelapse reveals, if you’ve got the patience to wait almost ten days, you could 3D print yourself an impressive replica of the Millennium Falcon

Rick and Morty Shorts And 3D Printing Make For A Heavily Intoxicated Good Time Rick and Morty Shorts And 3D Printing Make For A Heavily Intoxicated Good Time

The 3D Print Guy has a brilliant YouTube gimmick: he 3D prints plastic figures, and then he animates them. This time, he sculpts and animates the sneakiest, most mischievous Rick of all: Tiny Rick.

Finally, a Use For Candy Corn: Blasting It Out of a 3D-Printed Wrist Cannon

Do you lean more towards the “trick” side of trick-or-treating? Do you, like 98 percent of the world, wonder who actually eats candy corn? If you answered “yes” to both, then head over to DragonflyFabrication’s Thingiverse page where you can download the plans for this double-barreled, wrist-mounted candy corn blaster.
