I find the whole 3D printing concept fascinating. Those in Sydney can check it out for themselves at the Robots & Dinosaurs Hackerspace. Freelance Blogger and Journalist Neerav Bhatt did exactly that over the weekend, and his adventures in hand-making are right after the jump. Bhatt used an open source design — the OK hand signal — and the still undeniably cool Makerbot Cupcake CNC to make a spare hand. Quite what he'll use it for is his own private business, but if you've a hankering for some 3D printing of your own, the venue where he did his printing, Robots & Dinosaurs, is a hackerspace that's open to entry for a small membership fee. It's the kind of thing I'd love to do, if I could find the time and the right kind of project to make. And if I could resist the urge to simply wait until 3D Chocolate printing is readily available, rather than just in prototype form.
Robots And Dinosaurs And Plastic Hands, Oh My...

I won’t lie, when AMD’s new 16-core monster CPU, the Ryzen Threadripper 2950X, arrived, I ran around the office showing off it and its accompanying air cooler to anyone who would make eye contact with me. The thing is enormous—easily twice as large as a standard desktop CPU from Intel. The air cooler, saddled with the goofy name Wraith Ripper and festooned with LED lighting, is larger than most power supplies, and if dropped, it could do damage to floors, feet, and small woodland creatures. Even people who know nothing about computers were suitably impressed by these enormous pieces of PC. Then they’d ask how much the Threadripper 2950X cost. And that’s where I’d lose them.
