Well that's pretty interesting...
 
It's like OpenSCAD except it isnt ;-) http://www.implicitcad.org/ 
With the explosion of 3D printing, designing 3D objects has become an even more important problem. And it's a complicated one. We need to design complicated objects that precisely interface with each other. And often we don't want to just design a single object, but classes of objects, ...

DIY Lego 3Doodler. Sorta.
What do you do if you want to 3D print in any direction, but can't buy a pre-made pen like the 3Doodler? If you're Vimal Patel, you build your own. He

As usual, an excellent explanation of the issues from Stallman. One thing that he didn't mention though is that hardware fabrication lends itself to free digital designs.

If you want to release software without the code you can do that by just making a binary available, but there isn't a big push for that kind of thing in the 3D printer space. If you are distributing a file for 3D printing, you're giving the recipient everything they need to modify of and replicate it however they like. You could encumber the 3D file with a restrictive license, but that doesn't seem very common.

Of course, I suspect we'll see a push for DRM as 3D printing becomes more common. 
The concept we need is that of a free hardware design that permits users to use the design and to copy and redistribute it, with or without changes.

Demon Haunted World was an incredible read. I definitely suggest anyone with even a passing interest in the scientific method check it out.

Students aged 14-16 across ESA member states will initiate their ESA experiments this week. “Food from Spirulina” is a biological experiment which demonstrates the important role of Spirulina in recycling exhaled carbon dioxide into oxygen.

Shame this is Windows based.
 
I’m proud to announce you the release of the open source Software for the “cheapest 3d scanner on earth” the 30$ DIY Sardauscan.
The software Is written in C# and allow you to compose your Scan task by drag and drop.

Recommended Process is composed from these scan
“Scan” => “IrQ filter” => “merge laser” (if you use more than one laser) => “Build Mesh by interpolation “ => “Save STL”.
But if you are not satisfied with the build-in processing task, or if you prefer use another heavy but powerful software to work with your point clouds like meslab or other, you can just “Scan” => “Save Ply” and import them in your preferred application.

While the software come with a building support of the Sardauscan hardware, and usb camera. You can easely write your own Hardware proxy via plugins.  
You can event build your own task to insert in your scan process.

STL : http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:702470

Source Code : https://github.com/Sardau/Sardauscan

Let the bug flow Begin !
##Sardauscan is a open source Sub 30$ 3D laser scanner that you can easely print yourself. ##Even 12$ if you already have a hercule HD twist. I think we can say it's "the cheaper 3d scaner on earth" you just need a arduino nano, 1 to 4 line laser and a micro geared stepper (288YJ-48) (see instruction for BOM) no external power needed. just 2 free usb port on your pc. ___UPDATE ___ I’m proud to announce you the release of the ope...

Introduction
My interests are pretty widespread and difficult to narrow down into the scope of an introduction.

I suppose a good start would be to say that I am an avid supporter of open source software and spend most of my free time working on various hardware and software projects which you can read about on my site: DigiFAIL

While I don't consider myself a programmer, I have written a few tools which others have found useful which are released under the GPL. Similarly I don't know that I would call myself a writer, but I have been published a number of times in publications such as 2600, so I suppose that I must be.

Been going to China Palace for over a decade, and it has always been a pleasure. This is some of the best Chinese food I've ever had, not just for the area, but in general. Specialties like their cheese wonton appetizer are a must have. The decor doesn't exactly impress, but it's certainly a real restaurant, not some takeout place with plastic booths. Whenever I'm in the area, I can't leave until I've stopped in at China Palace.

Love the decor at Dublin, even if it is somewhat forced. Its crowded and loud, but that's the way a pub is supposed to be. Food is excellent, and service has always been great. Highly recommended.

Captain Paul's has a great family feel, and you can tell Paul clearly cares about his customers and his business. The resturant is dedicated to military, police, and emergency service personel; and it shows, from the decor to the themed sandwiches and dogs. Between the food, service, and dedication to hard working men and women all over the country, Captain Paul's is an establishment I will happily frequent.

Love the feel at the Wicket, but truth be told, some of the food isn't that great. Stick with soups, burgers, sandwiches, etc. Their attempts at more exotic dishes are hit or miss. Service is good as long as the place isn't too busy, but go on a holiday or when some special is in place, and you could end up with quite a wait.

I have been to most of the Chinese take-out restaurants in the area, and I've been consistently impressed with Good Taste. They are always very fast and accurate with your order, and the food is much better than similarly priced establishments. Highly recommended.

The food at the Chowder Hut is pretty good, nothing to get excited about but won't let you down either. biggest problem we had was the service, waiting 20 minutes for a cheeseburger is likely to put anyone in a bad mood.
