PassivDom 3D-Printed House is Fully Autonomous with Zombie-Proofing Options

The modulOne from PassivDom is quite an interesting house. Or, to be more accurate with the company’s description, “autonomous 3D-printed mobile house”. The Ukrainian company behind the house says it is “mobile and transportable house with Passive House parameters”. It is claimed that the thermal characteristics are high enough for the house to use 20 times less energy than an ordinary building. Of course, this comes in rather handy as autonomous function and off-grid living are the major selling points of this house.

Uwatela 3D Printed Abstract Art Construction Toy

Uwatela 3D Printed Abstract Art Construction Toy

In a very chaotic sense, Uwatela construction toy could be said to be similar to Lego. The resemblance however ends at the point that Uwatela and Lego employ pieces sticking to each other. Dolf Veenvliet’s (previously) creation is aimed at creating abstract construction forms. The pieces are 3D printed from the Makerbot Replicator 1, and thrive on serendipity of what abstract shape might be constructed. Each set contains eight pieces packed in a linen bag, and priced at $21.11.

Wearable, 3D Printed Translucent Jewelry With Plants

Once you get good with 3D printing, you could make anything. Like making tiny planters with plants in them, and then using said planters in jewelry and accessories. It seriously looks great. The planters are watertight so you don’t get droplets from the plant you’re wearing. Several of the planters are also translucent and the barely visible roots give them quite a pattern. Intended for use with succulents, small flowers, and sprouts, they are available at Etsy shop A Wearable Planter.
