The boy geniuses of Formlabs, David Cranor, Maxim Lobovsky, and Natan Linder have posted a video detailing their Form One 3D printer, one of the most well-put-together 3D printing devices we’ve seen in a while. The Form One uses a form of stereolithography that prints the objects “upside down” by activating polymers with laser light.

Schematics for 3D printing a working handgun have been yanked from their original website by order of the State Department—but the files remain online at the Pirate Bay website and elsewhere.
Despite worries about the dangers of 3D printed firearms, there's little chance of anyone with a MakerBot device gunning people down. Even gun-control advocates think the hype is too much.
It's been hard to escape the furore surrounding the popularity of the first operational gun released via 3D printing this week. Over 100,000 copies of the weapon have already been downloaded. Despite the intense debate around this news, the White House is looking to 3D printing as a means of both revolutionizing the American manufacturing industry, and also saving the states money.
Hyrule Foundry, a blog dedicated to the Legend of Zelda universe and 3D printing technology, shared photos of The Legend of Zelda's item collection, recreated through the use of a 3D printer.
It’s a manufacturing network that’s distributed within communities around the world. It’s mashing-up the real world need for industrial production with the digital networks and individuals that share them, like Facebook for products. That means anyone can connect their home 3D printer to 3D Hubs, transforming it into a local node on a global distributed manufacturing facility… it is, quite literally, making money.
Augmented reality and 3D printing, while very different technologies, circle around the same general concept: bridging the gap between the physical world and the digital world. 3D printing makes the digital physical, and augmented reality enhances the physical world with digital overlays.

A nice and good-looking pendant that says AmourFou.
Well almost, you still need to locate 4 lenses from some disposable cameras and a light source. For the light source use an LED or mirror, whatever you have. I used a cheap LED wall light from Wal-Mart.
