Maybe you have seen the A Little Sad Keanu Reeves 3D printed model (and An Itty Bitty Sad Keanu for the budget conscious) available on Shapeways shared by neuralfirings (Nancy Liang)? Perhaps you have seen the Sad Keanu Instagram feed here?
Well, now check out …. An E-Book About a 3D-Printed Sad Keanu by Alexis C. Madrigal @ The Atlantic:
It is not every day that I have an idea as bad/good as May 26, 2013. It was on that day that I took a tiny 3D printed doll of Keanu Reeves looking sad into the real world and detailed his adventures in text and photographs.
The story was sort of a commentary on the weirdness of 3D printed artifacts, sort of a commentary on memes run amuck, and mostly a bit of fun with a new toy.
After I had my first child in the late summer, I returned to Sad Keanu because I realized that his adventures read like a children’s book. And as the holidays approached, I realized that I could actually make this children’s book for the parents among us.
So, that’s what we’ve done for our annual gift from The Atlantic’s tech team to our readers. It’s been a great year. Thanks for reading us….
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
