Coffee cup. Teacup. Trophy cup. There are all kinds of cups! Let’s take a look at five cool cups that you can 3D print! In no time, you will be drinking in the satisfaction of making your own vessel for refreshments. A 3D printed cup is an intriguing concept. Instead of 3D printing robot parts, aerospace prototypes, or even 3DBenchies, you can bring the usefulness of in-house additive manufacturing into the kitchen! Before we dive into some great 3D printed cup models, let’s take a look at three criteria any practical dishes should exhibit: What is it? What better way to start the day than with a nice distorted cup of coffee? The designer of this first model definitely recognized this and has published a beautiful 3D printable coffee cup to hold your delectable breakfast beverage! Love espresso? Duplicate3D has also designed a similar Espresso Cup for a bright morning “wake-me-up.” (Don’t worry if you prefer tea time — this model is also compatible with tea!) In about 3-5 hours of print time, you can have your very own crushed coffee cup. Maybe the look of your 3D printed cup will rival the taste of its contents. Who printed it? Nine Thingiverse users have printed this mod...

Seven Liter Bikes That Left Me Weak In The Knee Pucks: A Sicilian Love Affair

When MO received a last minute invitation to ride all of the liter bikes in one day at a track in Sicily, we initially thought that we’d have to decline this superbike comparison since MO Hot Shoe, Troy Siahaan, was committed elsewhere. Then Burns reminded us of the great story that Mark Miller wrote for us a while back. Given Mark’s racing history (former AMA class champion, 50 Isle of Man starts and current fast-lap-by-an-American record holder, 17 Macau Motorcycle Grand Prix entries, etc.), we knew that he had exactly what we were looking for in a hired MOron. Read on and enjoy. It’s a long one. —Evans So, there I am sitting at my computer, minding my own business, when a notification pops up on my screen. It’s Evans Brasfield from Motorcycle.com, asking if I’d be interested in grabbing a flight to Sicily in the next few days to go out and test the latest flagship liter-bikes from all the major manufacturers, then write up my impressions for the publication. I peered over Evans’ sentence a few times very carefully to make sure I was reading it correctly, then pulled my pants up and called my wife at work to ask If I had her permission to go outside and play. In Sici...

The best kids smart watch for parents to buy Telegraph logo Feed of articles Saved articles Save Facebook icon Twitter icon Instagram icon LinkedIn icon Facebook icon Twitter icon Instagram icon LinkedIn icon

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a child viewing his parent’s gadgets must be in want of his own. If you’ve got something cool, you can guarantee it won’t be long before they’re either taking yours or demanding their own. Smartwatches and fitness trackers are the latest tech products finding a younger audience – although not without attracting controversy. In Germany, children’s smartwatches are banned due to fears they could be hacked. Meanwhile fitness trackers for kids have been criticised for leading children to start calorie counting at a young age. Then there are the accusations of helicopter parents using smartwatches to track their children at all times. Still, enthusiasm for the gadgets is clearly there, because tech brands continue to plug away with the kiddy wrist gadgets. Many of these take the generalised criticism on board and build in measures to quell anxiety that the watches can do more harm than good. The best smartwatches for kids are carefully designed with both the child and his or her parents in mind. Here’s what I found while testing and reviewing a range of wrist-based gadgets for children are available, starting with my favourites…...

2019 Ram Chassis Cab Combines Fresh Face With Luxury And Power

Now that Ram has lifted the veil on its 2019 HD pickup truck line, it’s time to get to work. In this case, Ram means that literally with its all-new Chassis Cab trucks. Built for heavy-duty applications, the Chassis Cab lineup includes 3500, 4500, and 5500 models but they aren’t carbon copies of Ram’s HD trucks with the beds removed. These machines are purpose-built to accommodate a wide range of upfits for an even wider range of applications. It all starts with power. Chassis Cab models get the familiar 6.4-liter Hemi V8 as the standard-issue engine, producing 410 horsepower (306 kilowatts) in the 3500 and 370 hp (226 kW) in 4500 and 5500 trucks. 429 pound-feet (582 Newton-meters) of torque is common among them all, as-is cylinder deactivation for a slight bump in fuel economy. The revamped 6.7-liter Cummins turbo diesel inline-six is optional across the board, but for Chassis Cab models it’s tuned to produce 360 hp (269 kW) and 800 lb-ft (1,085 Nm) of twist. A new eight-speed automatic transmission is available for the 3500 with the Hemi; otherwise a pair of six-speed automatics are offered depending on the engine option. All trucks feature some measure of PTO drive on either ...

Commercial food-serving establishments and their dumpsters are magnets for pests; the nearest door serves as an

Commercial food-serving establishments and their dumpsters are magnets for pests; the nearest door serves as an entry opportunity to the building. Pause for a moment and consider this question: How do the pest issues of many of your commercial food-related clients actually begin? We should try to focus on the moment — the actual moment — when the very first mouse or rat or fly occurs at a facility and, more importantly, where it is likely take place. This article poses the likelihood that the genesis of many of our clients’ pest infestations originate where strong pest attractants meet easy pest entry opportunity. And, an all-too-common situation where this occurs is where food refuse dumpsters meet the nearest gappy door threshold. So, how can we as pest experts, help our clients minimize such pest “startups”? Let’s consider this premise and outline some on-the-job tips that address this issue specifically. FSEs, DUMPSTERS & PESTS. Commercial food-serving establishments (FSEs) (see Table 1) must employ relatively large refuse containers such as dumpsters/compactors to accommodate their food waste. Dumpsters are particularly strong pest attractants for three reasons: 1) the...

The Dyke Division of the Two-Headed Calf: Room For Cream – New Events Hello Museum Through

The Dyke Division of the Two-Headed Calf: Room For Cream – New Events Hello Museum Through December 01, 2017 – New York The underground hit Room for Cream is back! Reuniting with new special guests, The Dyke Division of the Two-Headed Calf stages Season 4 of Room for Cream, a live performance serial that ran for three seasons from 2008 to 2010. This subversive soap opera situates itself in the fictional Sappho, MA, a lesbian enclave and life experiment that is paradoxically both separatist and inclusive by nature of its world-building aspirations. Sappho is home to a wild, sweet, and perverse collection of queers of diverse ages, gender expressions, and politics. Thinking through a communal modality—in practice and representation—The Dyke Division stages contemporary queer discourse in the vernacular of “soap,” simultaneously embracing and critiquing what constitutes popular culture in our current moment. The project aims to hold and represent the mess that ensues when a group of folks elect to consciously live against the monolith of patriarchy, sometimes in competing forms of vigilance. The first twenty-four episodes of Room for Cream were performed ove...

NICT Network System Research Institute and Fujikura Ltd. (Fujikura, President: Masahiko Ito) developed a 3-mode optical

NICT Network System Research Institute and Fujikura Ltd. (Fujikura, President: Masahiko Ito) developed a 3-mode optical fiber, capable of wide-band wavelength multiplexing transmission with standard outer diameter (0.125 mm) that can be cabled with existing equipment. The researchers have successfully demonstrated a transmission experiment over 1045 km with a data-rate of 159 Tb/s. Multimode fibers have different propagation delays between optical signals in different modes that makes it difficult to simultaneously satisfy large data-rates and long distance transmission. This achievement shows that such limitations may be overcome. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘div-gpt-ad-1449240174198-2′); }); Converting the results to the product of data-rate and distance, which is a general indicator of transmission capability, results in 166 Pb/s×km. This is the world record in a standard outer diameter few-mode optical fiber and the largest data-rate over 1000 km for any kind of standard-diameter fiber. In order to achieve the transmission capacity of 159 Tb/s, mode multiplexing is used in combination with 16-QAM (quadrature-amplitude modulation), which is a...

Grab your beachchair and load up the cooler: Shore series returns for a third summer

Reporters Amy S. Rosenberg, Tommy Rowan, and Jason Nark are returning to the Jersey Shore for a third season to regale readers with stories that remind us why a trip to the Shore is a family experience. During summer 2017, we caught a ride to the coast and documented the Shoobies, Locals & Moments #downaShore. Last summer, we chronicled the rites of a Jersey Shore summer. This year, we’re focusing on the theme of families, and we will be exploring the ways families reinvent themselves at the shore, and how the people you see every year become more than your beach buddies. We’re celebrating the people you see every year, and the places you look forward to visiting every summer. Expect stories about a matriarch’s role at a beach house, as well as a look at a child’s first amusement ride at the Shore and a teenager’s last park outing with their family. Whether you’re a shoobie, a lifelong local, or an expat seeking a blast from the past, we hope you will enjoy reading about the scenes that encapsulate a summer at the Shore. For the rest of the summer, we’re expecting to hear your feedback on family life at the Shore. Readers can comment on our Shore Series page, and we encoura...

2018 MacBook Air’s FaceTime HD Camera Quality Issue

Just got my new Macbook Air 2018 edition. Sadly I did not research enough and was badly surprised by the camera problems. For comparison Macbook Air 2013 vs Macbook Air 2018 photos in same indoor light. I really hope this is not the expected quality.@AppleSupport @MacRumors pic.twitter.com/hYsacjcogk I heard 2 senior podcasters with access to Apple mention it was due to the lids being too thin for a better camera sensor to fit. There is no backlight for the Apple logo for the same reason. I believe this applies to 2018 MB Pros as well. Apple’s Beats brand in April unveiled the Powerbeats Pro, a redesigned wire-free version of its popular fitness-oriented Powerbeats earbuds.
