When it comes to hobby-level 3D printing, most of us use plastic filament deposited by a hot end. Nearly all the rest are using stereolithography — projecting light into a photosensitive resin. Filament printers have typical build volumes ranging from 1,000 to 10,000 cubic centimeters and even larger isn’t unusual. …read more
Though it’s really more apple cider weather here at Hackaday HQ, freshly-squeezed OJ is a treat that knows no season. Sure generates a lot of peel, though. Not something you think about when you’re used to buying it in jugs at the grocery store. What a waste, huh?
There are times when you don’t have access to coffee or tea, but you still need a caffeine buzz. Or many you just don’t like the taste of coffee or tea. That’s what Verb Energy bars are for.
Each 90-calorie bar contains core ingredients like almond butter and agave. They come in flavors like Coconut Chai, Maple Blueberry, Simply Cocoa, and Salted Peanut Butter. They are all gluten-free and vegan. Best of all, they contain green tea caffeine, which has L-theanine in it. Some studies have shown that L-theanine reduces anxiety.
Huawei is apparently working on a new tablet, and it looks pretty darn similar to an iPad Pro, according to leaked renders posted by 91Mobiles (via Android Central). The biggest difference seems to be its cameras Huaweis tablet appears to have a dual-lens back camera and a hole punch display housing a front-facing camera. Its actually the second Chinese-made gadget weve covered today that cribs heavily from Apple Xiaomis new smartwatch has a strong resemblance to an Apple Watch.
Huaweis new tablet might even adopt Apples Pro nomenclature serial leaker Evan Blass said it will be called the Huawei MatePad Pro.
In the past, Xiaomis products have looked a lot like Apple versions, and Xiaomis first smartwatch, which will launch on November 5th, appears to be no exception. From the images and video teasers Xiaomi released through Weibo earlier this week, it bears a striking resemblance to the Apple Watch (via XDA Developers).
The watch has an almost-identical rectangular touchscreen face with rounded corners and a lookalike rotating ridged crown button for scrolling, which is also located above a similar-looking pill-shaped button on the right side of the watch. Those are all right where youd find them on an Apple Watch. Although the Xiaomi watchs face is a little thicker and less…
In Thailand’s capital city Bangkok, a hamburger joint has become internet-famous for a nearly 13 pound burger patty with fried onion rings, bacon and mayonnaise. YouTube personalities started challenging one another to try and finish it.
Among the poor fellows who managed to do it — but not within the time limit — was one guy who said, I will eat a burger at some point (in the future), but not any time soon.
My truth: I dont like Halloween. I think its fun, sure, and I do love any excuse to party or eat candy, but theres something about the ritual of it that gets to me something about pretending to be someone or something else, when its so hard even to just be yourself. Or maybe its that Halloween changes: eventually you stop eating your neighbors candy and start giving it out yourself. Or the fact that, in New York City at least, its one of the messier weekends of the year. I think I might just be a curmudgeon. But I enjoy things! I promise. Actually, now that I think of it, heres one.
For the better part of a decade, one of my favorite internet Halloween traditions has been waiting for trap producer Henry Steinway better known…
My Amazon Kindle Voyage is one of my most treasured pieces of electronica. The battery, after 5 years, started to give up the ghost. It is dying in a rapid and dramatic fashion. I really did not want a different model Kindle and the Voyage is discontinued.
I was worried I could not open the Voyage without destroying it. Amazon famously glues things in place and I tend to break plastic bits.
Instead of using a small eye-glass repair sized flathead screw driver, I decided I would try the right tool for the job. This set of spudgers matched with slow and steady movement did the trick. Amazon used double-sided sticky tape to make shit annoying. I was easily able to open the case.
This Kitchen IQ Edge Grip 2-Stage Knife Sharpener costs just on Amazon. I’ve been using one for years and it’s my favorite knife sharpener. I like it because of the way you hold it with one hand along the edge of a kitchen counter and with the other hand you draw the knife through the slots. It’s a safe way to sharpen a knife and I don’t see how someone could make a mistake and hurt themselves. One slot is “coarse” and the other is “fine.” I typically use the fine slot every week or so to restore the edge on a knife. I rarely use coarse because it removes quite a bit of steel from a knife, but sometimes that’s just what’s needed to sharpen a dull knife. Over 11 thousand people have reviewed this sharpener on Amazon, and has an average star rating of 4.3. Read the rest
We hope you can come meet the whole Family Acid (and us) in Los Angeles next Thursday, November 7, at The Standard Hollywood for a photo show and reception from 7-11pm! And if you can’t make it, we have some copies available directly from our site, Ozma Records, along with a limited-edition Family Acid photo print on perforated LSD blotter paper (undipped) signed by Roger himself!
For more than 50 years, photographer Roger Steffens has explored the electric arteries of the counterculture, embracing mind-expanding experiences, deep social connection, and unadulterated fun at every turn. After serving in Vietnam at the end of the 1960s, Steffens immersed himself in Californias vibrant bohemia. Since then, with his wife Mary and children Kate and Devon, he has sought out the eccentric, the outlandish, and the transcendent. Just as often, it finds him, grinning, a camera in one hand and a joint in the other. Steffens took the spectacular snapshots in this new collection between 1968 and 2015 during his family’s freewheeling adventures throughout the visionary state they call home.
A full-color, 192-page hardcover with foil stamping and tipped-on cover photo, The Family Acid: California contains hundreds of stunning images curated by Kate Steffens along with detailed captions and original essays by Roger Steffens and Tim Page. Read the rest
Our friends at iFixIt took apart the new AirPods Pro to see what’s inside. An awful lot is stuffed into a very small package. Unfortunately, IFIxIt deems the AirPods Pro to be non-user-repairable: “While theoretically semi-serviceable, the non-modular, glued-together design and lack of replacement parts makes repair both impractical and uneconomical.”

Most video game protagonists walk with purpose. Nathan Drake has a particular swagger as he strolls through ancient tombs, while Leon Kennedy holds himself with the confidence of a trained professional amid the horrors of a zombie infestation. Luigi isnt like that. Marios bumbling brother is always slightly on edge, and that has never been more apparent than in Luigis Mansion 3, which launches today, October 31st, on the Nintendo Switch. Luigi shivers as he walks down dimly lit hallways and opens doors with no small amount of trepidation. When he runs, he moves so fast that his head trails behind, like in a Looney Tunes cartoon. He is not remotely brave and thats what makes the game so hilarious.
My daughter finally got me to start playing Undertale (I’m playing on my Switch). The game has great music, which was all written and composed by Toby Fox, who created the game. In this video, Pickitup of the Ska Tune Network does a fantastic cover of one of the songs from the game, “Megalovania.” Read the rest
