Week in Updates March

Yet another week has flown by:
Joe’s taken the time to document a few of the prints from Thingiverse.

And the MakerBot is now rocking some lights and a teflon coated nozzle so we can see what’s going on:

Backpack strap hacked to allow set positions using some rivets:

Finally got the Xbox Kinect working great:

Lastly, an attempt at ferrofluids:

Here’s some real giant neodymium magnets:
