927.1977.l-Ams_3d_faucet_low_res_1

We all know that 3D printing is going to bring an avalanche of awesome in the future, but at this point we are just scratching the surface. In this case, American Standard is utilizing a process developed in the 1980s called selective laser sintering that involves using lasers to heat and fuse metal powder. The result is faucet designs that would be difficult or impossible to produce with traditional methods.

The design above is the most interesting, and is described thusly:

..the focus was on designing the experience of water. The water is presented to the user as a stream bouncing on rocks in a riverbed. To achieve this poetic effect, the design team used Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) technology to adjust each of the 19 waterways to achieve the proper effect. The rest of the faucet is extremely pure and simple not to distract from the play of the water.

Although the products are considered to be the first ready-for-market faucets produced by 3D printing with metal, the estimated retail price is an absurd $12-$20,000 – so the technology still has a long, long way to go before its practical for the average consumer. If you aren’t the average consumer, you’ll be able to pick these up for your home sometime in the next 12 months “through an exclusive network of showrooms”.

elder scrolls basement

We first wrote about comic artist Tyler Kirkham’s amazing Skyrim basement back in 2012, but it turns out that Tyler was far from finished—he’s since made all kinds of cool additions and updates. In fact, as the Elder Scrolls updates roll out, he plans to update right along with it.

What kind of additions? Oh, the usual, secret doors, a full kitchen, even a waterfall shower with ivy growing in it. He even made an alcove for his one year old son to play in.

I want one.

viking-ship-fire-pit

This Viking ship fire pit a serious backyard accessory that’s made from 20 gauge metal and measures 40 inches in length and 16 inches wide.

May I suggest watching Game of Thrones and then going outside to burn some marshmallows… to death?

charmed-tent-harry-potter

Okay so maybe it’s not exactly charmed, but it does look way bigger on the inside. In fact, the Lotus Belle tent is 172-270 square feet of glorious camping space.

“Exceptionally weatherproof & portable. Use it as a guest-house on your land, for weddings, “glamping”, music festivals and more. You can have it up for months at a time so It’s great throughout summer!”

Or it would make a great tent for an extended camping trip finding horcruxes. But you might need some serious wallet charming spells because this giant tent comes with a giant price tag.

We’ve previously featured a beautiful map of Hyrule from Alex Greindling but now he’s back with a version from Super Mario World. He laser-etched the Dinosaur Land map on a piece of maple ply that is 18.5″ wide and 14″ tall. It’s beautiful, but you’ll never be able to fold it and put it in your pocket.
