Dad, are my sneakers ready yet? This may be something you regularly hear in the future, because right now the 3D-Printed Sneakers By Recreus ($TBA) are available to print. You can 3D print you next pair of kicks thanks to a flexible filament offered by the company. Recreus believes their 1.75 mm filament is the most flexible on the market. Because flexible filaments can be extremely tricky and can cause your 3D printer to clog, Recreus has also released their own extruder and hot end ($30). The files for printing the Sneakerbot II sneakers can be found on Thingiverse.
Creepiosity ($10) is not only hysterical, it is also pretty darned disturbing, but that's only because it is true.

Every subject is infused with Bickel's wit and dry humor so while we may have not thought it creepy to begin with we certainly do by the end of it. Utterly brilliant.
