Merry Christmas.

Here’s a grab bag of the things I’ve been looking at lately:

DIY solid modeling machine for less than $1000!

When I worked as a toy designer we would get prototypes of our engineering models done on machines that cost $1M, now I can own the machine and get reasonable results at home for about the same cost as one prototype!

I’ve been looking for the best rechargeables for my camera and my GP2X, both eat through even the high capacity NiMH cells, hopefully these NiZn 1.65V cells are the answer? I’m going get some as soon as they come with a charger that will work in this country.
