This has to be one of the coolest uses for a 3D printer that I've seen. Theo Jansen is a Dutch artist who is known for creating gigantic creatures out of PVC that can walk on their own. He's taken the same structures, shrunk them down, and 3D printed them to create the 3D Printed Strandbeests ($56-$113). There are four of these creatures available in various sizes which your can purchase from Shapeways. There are also two propeller kits available, and when attached they allow your Strandbeest to move with a little air from your mouth, fan, or blower. Check out the video below the features both the full-sized and miniature Strandbeests.

Ryan and Joe of Suus took their electrified Honda C90 Motorcycle ($NFS) to Deus Ex Machina's 3rd Bike Build Off and came home with a first-place trophy. Their bike won from a field of about 40 entrants. They started with one goal. To build a bike "that didn't look awkward or unbalanced." They also didn't want the fact it was electric to be obvious. They took a Honda C90, along with a scooter frame, and some damaged electric parts and came up with the work of art you see here. The bike combines cutting edge technology and retro design to great effect. It doesn't make use of a gearbox and instead uses high efficient motors. Fewer moving parts means it's reliable despite its age. This lightweight, nippy little cycle is perfectly suited to whizzing around tight city streets. Able to make laborious journeys more enjoyable and more eco-friendly.
