3D Printing a Frame for a Lego Action Figure

io9 highlights an interesting application for 3D printing. In this case, Hero Design Studio, has created several 3D printable frames which are designed with attachment points so that Lego action figures can be built around them. That’s an extremely clever way to mix 3D printing and existing toys.

Lego Green Lantern Power Battery

This Lego Green Lantern Power Battery may be the best thing ever (at least for this week). This would be amazing as-is, but the creator of this at JustJon.Net hit it out of the park by a) making the battery actually light up, and b) having the light triggered by an RFID-equipped ring.

Simply awesome.
