If there was any doubt that 3D printing has reached the world stage, these are now put to rest. Nike launches 3D-printed sports bag for Brazil 2014 World Cup, from Dezeen.com:

Sportswear company Nike has designed a 3D-printed sports bag for players taking part in the FIFA World Cup 2014, kicking off next week in Brazil.

The brand claims that the Nike Football Rebento duffle bag is the first world’s first 3D-printed football bag. It has been designed as a sports equipment holder for football players at the 2014 World Cup.

Named after the Portuguese word for “explode”, the bags will be given to players selected by Nike including Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar.

…Nike 3D-printed the mesh covering of the bag using laser-sintered nylon, in a pattern referencing the stud plate on the bottom of their Flyknit boots.

The intertwining mesh on the bag’s base is also created with similar techniques used for the Flyknit material.

The bags feature gold detailing, with the player’s names engraved into gold plates on two sides….

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! We also offer the LulzBot TAZ – Open source 3D Printer and the Printrbot Simple Metal 3D Printer in our store. 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!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
