Analog Motorcycles is just five years old, but they're already making a name for themselves in the bike customization arena. Started by Tony Prust out of Gurnee, IL, they've created some iconic bikes like our previous reviewed 1973 Yamaha RD350 S2RD. They've now released the beautifully streamlined Blue Baron By Analog Motorcycles ($TBA). The bike started its life as a 1958 BMW R50. The frame was completely de-tabbed and features custom made items like top triple, headlight ears, rear taillight, fender struts, tank emblems, battery tray and cover, and the entire seat bracket assembly. The engine was completely rebuilt and all electrical wiring and lighting are new. Every detail on the bike is perfect.

Now that I got that out of the way it is also one of the coolest videos I've ever seen. It was shot using a GoPro Video Camera and shows what type of creativity can be achieved with first person action cameras. Plus the music is pretty good. Check it out and let me know if you love it as much as I do on our Facebook page.

They guys over at DeltaMaker not only want the their 3D printer to create works of art, but they also want the creation process to be a work of art that can be on display in your home. The open air design does not use the conventional one motor per axis system. It uses three parallel arms to move the print head. This makes a fun to watch high resolution printer that can create objects up to 9x11 inches. This printer uses a 1.75mm filament, and will achieve 100 micron layer resolution.
