Another week, another Wednesday. Time seems to be flying by like crazy, it's already February, and seems like we just celebrated New Years. So why not sweeten the passage of time with some random internet browsing, and some sugar in the form of chocolate or popsicles, your choice.

Eat me | laser cutting café in Shibuya offers chocolate replicas of your face
How about having coffee and laser cutting/3D printing all in one place? FabCafe (which stands both for "fabulous" and "fabrication") in Shibuya, Tokio, now offers not only custom laser cutting, but also a 3D-printed chocolate snack, which is a tiny replica of your (or your friend's) face.
blank Lumio: A Portable Light that Folds like a Book
A portable light in the shape of a book developed by the architect and industrial designer Max Gunawan, Lumio is super versatile, and good-looking. It has strong magnets embedded in the cover, tyvek pages and laser-cut live hinge spine.
3Doodler: The World's First 3D Printing Pen
3D printing pen - says it all. It draws in 3 dimensions using a special plastic similar to the one in regular 3D printers that is heated and then solidifies to create 3D structures. (Ugh, I used the number 3 six times in this blurb!)

Building an articulated arm for a stereo microscope - it has a pretty good movement range in all directions, and looks really solid. I want one too! Check out more detail at the maker's blog.
Giant Melting Popsicles by Luciana Rondolini
Visual manifestation of passage of time, many a sweet tooth's dream and beautiful absurdity all at once. I wonder how long that show lasted...

The rest of links is accessories that include music for aerojelly, wireless LEDs for aerojelly, and a pack of […]

New Books, Closed Monday 2nd

So apparently Monday here in Albertaland is "Heritage Day". Which, quite frankly, sounds rather uninspiring. Don't get me wrong - any excuse for a statutory holiday is a good one. But the name seems rather vague and underwhelming. And thus I began my quest to find the true meaning of Heritage Day. So as any […]
