Easton LaChappelle using #opensource and engineering new #3D #robotic #prosthetics [#geekgirl]

You probably haven’t heard much about 19-year-old Easton LaChappelle, though he’s already done enough to land a job at NASA. Simply put, LaChappelle is changing the world for the better.

(sic)a.

Easton taught himself robotics and combined open source designs with 3D printing to create a completely functional prosthetic arm. Even as Easton refines his designs, he’s using new and more powerful tools such as the HP Sprout to post his designs online for anyone to refine, repurpose, and use. He’s not just creating one thing, he’s giving everyone the ability to be their own engineer, to take what was once an involved, arcane process and make it one anyone can do. As tools such as the HP Sprout continue to proliferate, making 3D modeling and object scanning as simple as placing the object under a camera, we’ll continue to find new luminaries, and seeing how they redefine the world.

Tree Change #Dolls giving old and discarded #toys a makeover [#geekgirl]

Tree Change Dolls is all about taking old discarded toys and giving them a new lease on life.

These dolls have been rescued and rehabilitated from op-shops and tip shops around Tasmania (Australia). These lil fashion dolls have opted for a “tree change”, swapping high-maintenance glitz ‘n’ glamour for down-to-earth style. Hand repainted the dolls – faces, molded new shoes, and the artist’s, Mum sews and knits their clothing.
