Thursday Cool Links: Switch Sign, Blinky...

Hello World. A sign built from 5,000 rocker switches.
An enormous grid made of 5,000 orange rocker switches by Valentin Ruhry. They illuminate when on to create whatever message/image.

3D printing liquid metals. We've played with solder & soldering irons for a long time, and this looks...familiar!
We’ve found the awesome singularity
A tardis and a transformer rolled into one, 3D printed. Created by [Nonnef], see it on Instructables.
Programmable Toys: Blinky Box!
A custom toy for a two-year-old programmed to change light patterns based on buttons pressed. Reprogrammable for more complexity!
The tiniest arcade cabinets you’ve ever seen

The illegal migration of links is strictly prohibited! By me. I'm gonna go hammer them down with nails so they are not tempted to run away, and keep them like that until next Wednesday when I hope I can catch them on time before they start packing up to leave.
