Meet Modio, a new app that lets you design and print your own toys at home

Presenter

Modio, it's the new app that lets you design & customize incredible creatures and turn them into toys using a desktop 3D printer. Easy to use drag and drop functionality lets you build creatures, characters and constructs free-form or from pre-designed templates. Customization features including surface textures let you personalize your creation and then, with the press of a button, your parts are magically sorted by color and prepped to print. So the app is fun but the outcome is also outstanding. With Modio, you get to play! These creations are printed bit by bit and designed to snap together and provide some pretty amazing pose-ability.

Makers in the Nursing Unit: What we’ve learned across America finding amazing MakerNurses

Presenter

We launched MakerNurse last year to find inventive nurses around the country who combine the Maker ethic with their own mission to heal patients. After visiting dozens of nursing units, meeting scores of nurses and patients, and testing dozens of medical hardware hacking components, we are finding we can do more to democratize medical fabrication. Makers, nurses and caregivers are at the forefront of this movement. We outline a dozen examples from Brooklyn, TX, CA, MA, VA, and Montana and the maker caregivers behind them. As we create a community that Makes Health, we look at some ideas on how to make it thrive. All of us can DIY Medtech!








ScrrrAtlas

A hundred-year old atlas has been refashioned into a popular word game.
I used a laser-cutter to make indentations for the tiles, and pieces of maps for the colored tiles. Many thanks to Ace Monster Toys for their help!
