The two biggest factors when it comes to choosing a printer are price and capacity. The bigger an item you want to print, the more expensive the printer will be. But if you’ve decided to just tip-toe into the world of 3D printing, and are just testing the waters, the $US299 iBox Nano looks like a great choice, as long as your printing plans aren’t overly ambitious.
Tech deals so good they’re scary: 15% off Canon cameras, up to 20% off Samsung TVs and 15% off Asus Notebooks over $500! That brings the Asus Transformer Book T100 hybrid laptop/tablet down to just $479! Dicksmith.com.au also exclusively has the new Pebble Steel smartwatch up for grabs at just $229.

Bluetooth earpieces have always stuck out. I mean they have literally stuck out of your ear. Perhaps they’re not as much of a fashion faux pas as Google Glass, but there’s definitely a stigma about them.

Rather, future Flex units will ship with a warning that the product contains nickel, a common allergen.
After several gazillion leaks over the last few days, they’re finally here: GoPro’s 2014 line of action cameras. As rumoured, there are in fact three models. There’s the Hero, GoPro’s new entry-level camera that comes in super cheap; the Hero4 Silver, which is basically last year’s best action camera plus an LCD touchscreen; and last but certainly not least,there’s the Hero4 Black, which seems to demolish every other action camera out there.
Earlier this year Kevin Bates revealed what had to be the best way to make an amazing first impression with any potential employer: a business card that actually played Tetris. That project is still in development (yes, you’ll eventually be able to buy one) but in the meantime Kevin has reformatted the guts of his Arduboy into a wearable bracelet that turns the world’s most popular puzzle game into a fashion statement.
Perhaps you’re not willing to spend hundreds of dollars on a tablet, or you only need a basic gadget without all the fancy bells and whistles. Fortunately, there are many companies happy to sell you a such a device at the right price, though you might not expect one of those companies to be ALDI. Well, it is.
Although the nutcracker seems like an outdated piece of technology given you can buy nuts with the shells already removed, a small chunk of the population seems to still prefer doing it themselves. So nutcracker makers keep plying their trade, coming up with better and better designs, like this satisfying hammer that prevents shattered shells from becoming dangerous projectiles.
