Diamond Age is nominated for an NZ Open Source award on the 12th of November at Te Papa, Wellington for our 3D printers. Then we're finally off on our World Tour of New Zealand, covering the Mainland and the Smaller Island. So if you want us to demo, build, sell or hack a 3D printer with you, let us know and we'll include a stop at your place.

I can see something like this appearing in our loo soon, as the cats use the loo as the gateway into the 1st floor via a ceiling-cat hole!
I have been building again. removed the old pitiful shop bought cat playground, and built what i call Cat Shelves :)

Each cube is 40cm squared. There are holes to go up, down, and a bit of a maze to get to the top. 

I made 3 dead end boxes for beds which have blankets in them until i get pillows (and will get a front panel) and a couple of larger double sized areas for them to play in.
The whole thing was made with 12mm hardwood ply (non-treated), and took 2.5 sheets (2400x1200mm).

Took about 2-3 hours work, and about 10 hours planning (at the least!)

Vik vs Android round 2: The HTC Desire 300. Currently wading through a lot of "sign up here[cancel]" and 404 Not Founds. Getting root should not be this hard!

There are some naive hardware designers at Microsoft being educated. They will shortly be cringing with strange expressions on their faces, and puckered arses.

Toro-bots: Walking robotic lamps reorganize garden landscapes 

No matter how pretty your garden may be it only gets that way because of all of the hard work you put into it. But, in the future gardens might not need your help at all, reordering themselves at a robotic whim. (Video)

Testing the "toro-bots" (robotic japanese garden lamps)

I get a mention in the NZ Herald. Vanguard of 3D printing, eh? I feel like yelling "Hammerrrrr!"

Why is Maurice Williamson so hung up on people not printing golden guns? Is this the only weapon that can return him to the netherworld?

These are the 18mm MDF bits left over from cutting a #DiamondMind 3D printer. I get the feeling they could do something useful. If you have an idea, let me know, otherwise - free firewood in Henderson :)
