Nintendo Classic ‘Duck Hunt’ Rebooted in VR

By Tyler Koslow

One of the most iconic and popular video games of all time, Nintendo’s 1984 NES title Duck Hunt, might be a bit outdated, but who is to say that the classics can’t be reborn with a little help from emerging 3D technology? After attending this year’s Global Game Jam event, one 21-year-old developer from New Jersey named Joesph Delgado became inspired to take Duck Hunt, now over 30-years-old by the way, and reformat it for Virtual Reality.

I’m sure there were a lot of elements of both VR and Duck Hunt for Delgado to consider, implementing the classic Nintendo gun controller, tracking hand motions and ducks, and just making the VR experience as enjoyable as possible, for instance.…

How to 3D Print in Full Color: DIY Style

By Tyler Koslow

From Taiwan to Ireland, 3D printing enthusiasts around the world are preparing for the next big thing in additive manufacturing: full color 3D printing. 3D printing companies such as 3D Systems previously dominated the full color 3D printing race with the ColorJet Printing, but their hefty price tag of around $40k is discouraging for your average Maker and 3D printing enthusiasts. One user from Instructables.com named Jason Powell has just come up with a DIY path to bring full-color 3D printing to his redesigned Rostock Max, the popular delta 3D printer with a mere $1,000 price tag, making for a much more affordable color printer than any other company on the market.…

Prof. Pearce’s “Open-Source Lab” Unleashes the Power of 3D Printed Lab Equipment

Prof. Pearce’s “Open-Source Lab” Unleashes the Power of 3D Printed Lab Equipment

By Davide Sher

At 3DPI, we have had the opportunity to interview Professor Joshua Pearce from Michigan Tech a few times. That’s because he represents some of concepts that many 3D printer adopters appreciate and like to promote, in particular the use of low-cost 3D printing and other open source technologies directed toward sustainability, innovation, and discovery.
Many times, I have found myself quoting Prof. Pearce’s study on the savings derived from a single open source, 3D printed mechanical pump to exemplify the benefits of 3D printing in general.…

Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger: Adafruit Releases New Project for 3D Printed Daft Punk Helmet

By Tyler Koslow

Specializing in 3D printed DIY projects for open source tech company Adafruit, Noe Ruiz is certainly fond of the legendary electronic music duo Daft Punk. Back in 2014, Ruiz put together a DIY project that allowed customers to 3D print their own full-sized, LED-equipped Daft Punk helmet. The perfect project for an experienced Maker with which to ring in the New Year, Ruiz and the Adafruit team have revamped the previously released helmet project to include Bluetooth-controlled LED lights, giving those who are fans of both Daft Punk and 3D printing one more reason to ‘come on and celebrate’.…
