WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 3388 [post_author] => 638 [post_date] => 2018-04-01 17:09:40 [post_date_gmt] => 2018-04-01 07:09:40 [post_content] => Three essential tools for every handyman or woman. Includes our magnetic WristBuddy, an extendable, flexible magnetic flashlight and our three function COB headlamp!

1 - Magnetic WristBuddy:

The magnetic WristBuddy keeps everything within easy reach whether you’re under the hood, squeezing into a bathroom cabinet, up a ladder or just nailing a few 4×2’s together! Designed to hold lots of screws, nails, nuts and washers, the magnets are amply strong enough to also hold drill bits, hex keys, bolts, screwdrivers and even spanners. Made from extremely durable 1680D Oxford cloth, your WristBuddy will be with you for years to come.

2 - Magnetic, Extendable, Flexible Flashlight

  The perfect tool for finding that lost screw that rolled under your workbench or the pins that dropped onto the carpet! This bright, COB LED flashlight extends to a full 60cm (2ft), has a flexible neck and a strong magnet in the lens surround. It's also a wonderful aid for anyone with bad knees.

3 - Three Function COB LED Headlamp

How often have you wished for better lighting while doing a job? All you needed was a third hand with a flashlight, right? This tough, fully adjustable headlamp uses the latest Chip On Board LED technology for maximum performance. Set it for bright, normal or strobe function with a click of the switch. Weighing just 65 grams (2.25 oz), including the three AAA batteries, our headlamp can be worn hour after hour. And because it's both shock and water resistant, it's great for camping and fishing as well as in the home and workshop.

Special offer:

Bought separately, these three items are currently selling for a combined total of $27.40. For this week only, we have packaged all three for just $17.50 including free delivery. Please note that there is a limit of three combo packs per customer.

3D printed prosthetics have arrived… and they’re affordable!

3D printed prosthetics have arrived… and they’re affordable!

Close to three years ago I wrote a post about one man’s quest to print a working 3D prosthetic hand. It was basic but it worked and definitely fell into the category of a miracle (in my humble opinion). It looked like this:

Robohand - possibly the very first printed prosthetic in late 2012.
Robohand – possibly the very first printed prosthetic in late 2012.

Basic perhaps, but life changing for the recipient!

In the three years since, 3D printing, robotics and miniaturization have all taken giant leaps forward. So much so, that the dream has become a reality.

Less than a year ago, UK based company, Open Bionics, set out to create a fully functioning 3D printed, prosthetic hand. They demonstrated their early success in April with this excited recipient:

Open Bionics are now gearing up to start full production in the northern spring, expecting to be able to deliver the fully functioning devices for less than £3,000. This compares to between £50,000 and £100,000 for currently available robotic prosthetic hands.

Perhaps even more exciting is the fact that the whole project is open source, meaning that it will literally be possible to print your own hand.

There can be no question that 3D printing will change all our worlds. Despite still being in it’s infancy, life changing innovations are being announced weekly. The thresholds are being lowered with sophisticated, relatively large format 3D printers now costing less than $1,000.

At the commercial level, HP have announced their entry into the market with a printer that will print up to 50x faster than most desktop printers. It’s expected to cost around $30,000 but will undoubtedly tumble in price over the next two or three years. What is important is the advance in the technology which is soon disseminated to other printer manufacturers.

This video demonstrates the full functionality of these prosthetic hands from Open Bionics:

We live in truly amazing times, don’t you think?

While you’re here, let me show you another medical miracle – a 3D printed rib cage and sternum implant
