[Repost] Glowforge: Democratizing Laser Cutting with an Inexpensive, Easy to Use Machine

the following article was reposted from Core77, link to the original is found at the bottom.

For many would-be makers, there are barriers aplenty that can keep one from realizing one’s dreams. One of the first barriers is not having access to the right tools—the welding rig, 3D printer, laser cutter etc. that you need for your project—or the know-how to work one. But thankfully companies like Glowforge are ready to step in and become barrier removers, by designing better, cheaper tools that are easier to use than their forebears.

Glowforge is currently democratizing laser cutting by designing an affordable, easy-to-use laser cutter/printer that takes clever advantage of software. By integrating affordable smartphone cameras linked to software, their machine enables you to do things like draw directly on your part and have the laser trace-cut it (once you’ve removed your hand, naturally). The hassles of part alignment are all done on the screen of your smart device, rather than on the physical bed of the machine, giving you a WYSIWYG interface that reduces errors. And they reckon that their eponymous machine can rival a $10,000-plus laser cutter, but for just under two grand

Here’s a more in-depth video, for those of you interested in the technology behind it, and some of the early successes that drove company founder Dan Shapiro to develop the machine:

For the next 26 days, they’re taking pre-orders for the machine at an astonishing 50% off (i.e. the $4,000 model is going for $1,995), with shipping scheduled for December of this year. Demand is apparently strong: In the four days since the sale began, they’d racked up $3,052,002 in sales!

flying in a Drone

this is an amazing project, the idea was to make a super drone that could fly a person, though I think a drone by definition is an unmanned machine. but anyway the specs are: 54 counter-rotation propellers, six grouped control channels with KK2.15 stabilization. Take off weight 148kg, max lift, approx. 164kg. Endurance10 minutes. Power approx. 22KW. Cost £6,000

I love the crazy Idea and I would love to see more flying machines using Drone technology.

Parrot Rolling spider Mini Drone review


Parrot is a french company with an interesting assortment of products, and most interesting of all is a series of drones, these mini-drones are high tech toys and I got the chance to try the smallest of their range, the Rolling spider.

I would like to note that I have absolutely zero experience with Drones so I have no standard to compare this drone to other than RC cars and my drone flying skills are horrible. Read more ›

Big Wind – The most powerful fire truck in the world

this Epic looking tank is actually a really really large fire extinguisher made by the Hungarians.
they used a Russian T34 Tank for the base and two fighter Jet engines to push the water at really high pressure working exactly like a fire extinguisher but looking exactly like the most badass tank ever made, this tank (technially its a fire truck) was used in Kuwait in 1991 to extinguish the fires of the Burgan oil fire after the Iraqi invasion.


I wish those were Mega Particle Cannons and not water guns :(

Subscription Boxes are a disease.

GreenWoot_0I remember way back in the day when a site called woot! was around (and apparently it still is here ); woot was a site that sold one product a day on reduced prices, basically flash sales (like this old article I made on flash sales in Kuwait back in 2011).

- this is the Bag of crap, from the Woot site -

– this is the Bag of crap, from the Woot site –

So anyway when Woot came at the end of the month and had excess stock of all the crappy items they couldn’t get rid of they came up with a brilliant idea, just throw them all in a box and sell it for a fixed price (I think it was $50) and people somehow loved that box of random crap.

it was literally called box of crap and it was really popular, so popular in fact that many different companies all over the world started selling their version of box of crap, getting rid of products and selling boxes to people who have no problem throwing away money for stuff they don’t need.

example of crap you got in a box of crap

example of crap you got in a box of crap

and in the last few years this box thing has been growing, and its gone way too far, the following videos are what the “Subscription Boxes” look like today.

notice that all the videos are relatively recent to the date of this post and that they come in many varieties, one more thing I wanna mention is that these are all people I am subscribed to on YouTube, it was a coincidence that in TWO DAYS at least 4 people did an unboxing video of some sort of subscription box.

and that is annoying, why are people promoting this stupid marketing trick?

أرتك 3 دي تكشف عن ماسح ضوئي ثلاثي الأبعاد في مركز الراية


كشفت شركتا أرتك 3 دي، الرائدة عالمياً في الماسحات الضوئية ثلاثية الأبعاد، و شركة ثري دي يوتوبيا المعتمدة في الكويت ، لأول مرة في الكويت في مركز الراية التجاري عن الجهاز «أرتك شيبفاي» (Shapify Booth) في الخامس عشر من يوليو الماضي.


  • يتضمن الجهاز أربع ماسحات ضوئية ثلاثية الأبعاد عالية الدقة عريضة المجال تدور حول المستخدم عند عملها، بالإضافة إلى نظام إضاءة مدمج، وبرنامجاً عالي السرعة للنمذجة ثلاثية الأبعاد. ويمسح الجهاز جسم العميل خلال 12 ثانية فقط. ليعمل البرنامج بعدها على إنتاج نموذج ثلاثي الأبعاد لجسمه خلال 5 دقائق، ثم ينتج البرنامج خلال 15 دقيقة ملف الطباعة ثلاثية الأبعاد الذي يمكن إرساله للطابعات ثلاثية الأبعاد للحصول على تمثال المستخدم بالحجم المطلوب.
  • تستخدم هذه الماسحات الضوئية عالية الدقة، عادة في الصناعات الفضائية والطبية والتصنيع لضمان مراقبة الجودة، والتقاط حتى أدنى التفاصيل، وصولا إلى التجاعيد على الملابس.
  • يعد جهاز  شيبيفاي نقطة جذب مميزة داخلية أو خارجية، تناسب الأماكن العامة مثل الحدائق ومراكز التسوق والمعالم السياحية. وهو مناسب جداً أيضاً للاستفادة من كثافة حركة العملاء الحاليين، وجذب المزيد منهم.


قال أرتيوم  يوكين الرئيس والمدير التنفيذي لشركة أرتك 3 دي معلقاً على هذا الحدث: «نحن متحمسون جداً لتقديم جهاز شيبيفاي في الكويت خصوصاً بعد الاستجابة الإيجابية التي تلقيناها في معرض دبي للترفيه والتسلية 2015 في وقت سابق من هذا العام» وأضاف: «حاز جهاز شيبيفاي على شعبية كبيرة في آسيا والولايات المتحدة وأوروبا الغربية، ويسرنا اليوم أن نقدم تقنياتنا للمستهلكين في منطقة الشرق الأوسط. وعلى الرغم من الصحافة والمواقع الأخبارية تتحدث كثيراً على التقنيات ثلاثية الأبعاد، وخاصة الطباعة ثلاثية الأبعاد، إلا أنها لم تصل بعد إلى مرحلة الانتشار  والاستخدام السهل بالنسبة للمستهلك العادي. لكننا نهدف إلى تغيير هذا الواقع، لأننا نؤمن أن جهاز شيبفياي سيكون التفاعل الأول مع التقنيات ثلاثية الأبعاد لكثير من الناس. ونسعى من خلال عرضنا له إلى تسليط الضوء على الفرص التي توفرها تقنية المسح والطباعة ثلاثية الأبعاد للمؤسسات والشركات في منطقة الشرق الأوسط.».
