Get a dog, they said. It’ll be cute, they said. It won’t be that much work, they said. It won’t poop in the house, they said. Well, “they” lied. 3 months, 4 accidents, and 2 destroyed carpets later, I’m finally get used to having a furry friend at home. He’s cute, don’t get me wrong, but man is having a dog a lot of work. But I think – I hope, Laïka is the answer to my prayers. We all feel bad leaving our dogs alone while we’re at work all day, but with this little robot, your dog won’t even...

3D Printing Is Hard – Voladd Is Easy

Let’s say you got your hands on the best 3D printer in the world. It’s capable of doing literally anything, you could print a freakin’ space ship with this thing. Somebody says, “Ok, make me something simple – like a little box.” “No problem,” you say, “how hard could that be?” Then a few minutes go by and you still haven’t figured out how to even turn the thing on. And that is the problem with 3D printers in 2017. Here’s the issue. Most 3D printers these days, no matter how cool they may be, are still surprisingly difficult...
