I don't normally post motorbike related stuff and I certainly don't link to the Verge very often but this guy has to win the motorbike Internet ;)

From Flyboards to Hoverboards, there are some crazy water rideables out there at the moment, but they pale in comparison to this wave-riding dirt bike built for DC Shoes and piloted by Australian...

This is great, can you imagine how much fun you could have at parties :)
 
Arvid Larsson has always been fascinated by Polaroid cameras, and considered buying one. Then he worked out how much each print costs! So, he took a Raspberry Pi, a camera module and a thermal printer and made his own. A smart 3D-printed case completed…

Fantastic collection of SciFi artwork by Syd Mead

I expect the SciFi buffs to be able to name at least 3 films his designs were used in :)

Wow, an explanation of the death star computer graphics from star wars :)
 
First computer graphics in a feature film - a short animation of the Death Star rendered in USA and back-projected against live action in UK, for Star Wars (1977.)  Larry Cuba was the animator, and tells his story in this video, which starts with the scene in question:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yMeSw00n3Ac
(He very nearly ran out of time to get the rendering done and the film shipped while the sound stage and actors were still available.)
There's a textual telling of the story over at
http://originaltrilogy.com/forum/topic.cfm/Animating-the-Death-Star-Trench-Circa-April-1978/topic/12830/
and more on the PDP-11/45 GRASS system at
https://www.evl.uic.edu/entry.php?id=1935
and the Vector General display at
https://design.osu.edu/carlson/history/ACCAD-overview/overview2.html
(All the other imagery in Star Wars was traditional - miniatures, cel animations, glass painting)
Participants: Daniel J. Sandin, Steve Heminover, Thomas A. DeFanti. In 1976, visiting artist and technologist Larry Cuba used the GRASS (Graphics Symbiosis System) language developed by EVL director Tom DeFanti during a residency at the University of Illinois at Chicago's Circle Graphics Habitat ...

+Richard Karlson​ The 6502 was 1MHz and the 6502A was 2MHz clocked. I spent a lot of time with that CPU on my Commodore PET and BBC Model B microcomputers.

I love this material, I just wish it was cheaper so I could do a full size bronze :)

Some great 3D printable Raspberry Pi cases amongst that lot :)
 
I don’t normally go in for “top 10″ lists as they are a bit click-bait-y. But this one made me smile, so I thought I would share it. It’s a list of 10 3D-printable cases for the Pi complete with links to the sites you need to visit to download the 3D…

This made me laugh :)
 
The illustration below is for COBOL.
C was the great all-arounder: compact, powerful, goes everywhere, and reliable in situations where your life depends on it. C++ is the new C — twice the power, twice the size, works in hostile environments, and if you try to use it without care and special training you will probably crash.

Not sure what's more dangerous the 1960's self driving car or the lawnmower :)
The Associated Press archives reveal videos featuring self-driving cars, a robot lawnmower and the hovercraft.

It looks like the hours of torture, modifying and fine tuning my printer to its absolute limits have paid off... This was printed all in one go first time including the ball joints. I'm quite pleased the paws came out, as you can see in the ruler photo they are really quite small.

Yes that it does. I think you need to want to do it as a hobby otherwise you may just as well use Shapeways or a similar service.

An excellent video showing the history of the earth and the extinction events. Its 15mins long so put it in your watch later for when you have time to sit and appreciate it :)
