It’s pretty cool that people can now print up their own prosthetic hands, but one guy has made them even cooler with the addition of Wolverine claws. Aaron Brown volunteers with Enabling the Future and he created a set of Wolverine claws to work with 3D printed prosthetic hands. From TechCrunch:

“The Comic loving nerd inside of me (along with some Facebook friends) said there is no way I can make a Wolverine hand without CLAWS…so I modeled some in Sketchup the morning before the makerfaire, printed ‘em, spray painted ‘em silver and velcro’d ‘em on there. Turned out pretty darn cool!

Brown has now been building the Wolverine claws for kids from a shop he recently set up after debuting them at the Grand Rapids Maker Faire. Plans for the hands themselves can be downloaded for free at Thingiverse.

rocky horror

MAC Cosmetics is giving new meaning to the words, “Don’t dream it, be it” with the announcement of a 21-piece collection based on The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

They’ve got a lipstick Frank-N-Furter, gold glitter for Columbia, a Riff Raff eye palette, lashes that Magenta would love and much more. Eye liners, both liquid and pencils, powders, mascara, even greasepaint pencils for those eyebrow accents we all know and love.

Something tells me a lot of the Transyvanians who still do floor shows at RHPS midnight showings are going to be thrilled when they hear the news.

The collection will be available online at MAC in October, but you can get a first look at some of the items after the break.

It’s hard to hide one of those little square engagement ring boxes, so Andrew Zo has designed a case that holds a ring and is no thicker than your average wallet. It’s just 1 cm thick and holds the ring flat inside until it’s opened, unfolding like origami to present the ring on a little stand at just the right moment. They’re currently swamped with orders, but you can sign up for their mailing list and be notified when the case is back in stock.

See more pictures after the break.

daryl poncho scarf

So, you’ve survived the initial onslaught of the zombie invasion. Congratulations! Now, the next step is to build up a tough image–you know, establish a the-apocalypse-is-actually-fun-for-me look. You can go with tire armor or a multi-colored mohawk, but personally, I’d go with this Daryl Infinity Scarf.

Then again, the design might look more badass as a poncho. It works either way.

This scarf is made from 100 percent polyester, and one size fits all.
