How To: Turn a 3D Printer Into A Digital Tattoo Artist

Here’s an innovative way to give yourself tattoos if you’re good at digital graphics: just use your 3D printer! The project is on Instructibles, from Pierre Emm and Johan Da Silveria – French students with a penchant for technology and tattoos.

ColAR Brings Coloring Books to Life Using Virtual Reality and Possibly Magic

ColAR is not your average coloring app. You’ll need your own crayons, but the app’s website provides printable coloring pages that you can turn into 3D creations after you’ve added your own hues.
