What could be more fun for a little kid than getting to drift off to sleep in your own amazing spaceship? That's the feeling five year old Finn must get each night, ever since his dad used some old discarded TV broadcast gear to create this fantastic spaceship bed.
Amanda Ghassaei has created a 3D printed record that, according to her, plays on "regular turntables, with regular needles, at regular speeds, just like any vinyl record." It doesn't sound the best, but for what it is, it plays phenomenally.

The holidays, then, are the perfect excuse for the true DIY enthusiast to share their basement engineering feats with the whole neighborhood, nay, the world! And keeping with the tradition of homemade seasonal tech, we decided to scour the DIY webspace to find the most seriously high-tech DIY Christmas ornaments. Here, we present the projects— for electronics amateur and auteur alike— that will transform a traditional (read: boring) Christmas tree into something truly geektastic.
Geeks can be pretty hard to shop for, we know. What one geek loves, the next has no interest in.

Heck, if that's not what 3D printers are for, then I've haven't the slightest idea why we've got them.
