3D food printer hits Kickstarter.

Foodini is a touchscreen controlled 3D printed which aims to “streamline some of cooking’s more repetitive activities” and take on the “difficult parts of making food that are hard and time consuming to make fully by hand”.

Once a user has selected a recipe for the Foodini the next step is to manually prepare the food to put in the machine’s food capsules. After that the machine takes over to prepare pretty much any design you can imagine:

'Game Frame' hits Kickstarter.
Game Frame is a 256 pixel grid of LED lights, which can display images or animations from an SD card. Buttons on top control playback options, and the frame runs off a standard arduino board. It also features an integrated breakout game.

That being said, the project has already almost tripled its US$15,000 goal and still has 27 days to go, so if you’d like to get your hands on one, get in quick - they ship out in order of payment, starting this June.

Using three paintball guns mounted on a 3D printed pan/tilt servo bracket, Waterloo Labs creation is able to shoot o ut 10 paintballs per second to create any shape entered by the user.
