Critical Mass puts a motion controlled wah wah pedal into a pair of Converse

A rock icon itself, Critical Mass took the design a step further and added in rock’n'roll hardware

Challenged by Converse to come up with something creative from a pair of its blank Chuck Taylors, creative agency Critical Mass set about making the most rock’n'roll pair yet.

Its in-house maker team was cracked into action, beginning by tearing out the electronics from a Vox Classic Wah Wah, replacing the original switch with a flex sensor, adding an Arduino Nano to amplify the signal and building it all into the sole of the size 12 Chuck Taylor.

Renamed “The Converse Chet Atkins All Wah,” after Mr. Guitar, Chet Atkins, the first man ever to use a wah wah pedal, the working wah wah pedal comes complete with twin jack ports in the front to plug in your guitar and amp.

Google bids big on Carbon3D action

A $100M investment by Google Ventures adds to the excitement, and expectation, of Carbon3Ds eventual 3D printer launch

$100 million can buy you a lot of things: private jets, super yachts, a dank bedsit in West London… it also buys you a large share of the excitement and potential future profits of 3D printing start-up Carbon3D.

Google Ventures’ financing, which dwarfs Autodesk’s hefty $10M input, will support Carbon3D as it continues to develop the technology and materials announced in March 2015.

Carbon3D’s Continuous Liquid Interface Production technology (CLIP), a tuneable photochemical process instead of the traditional mechanical approach, is already at work with the company announcing early customers from targeted industries including automotive, consumer electronics, aerospace, athletic apparel and industrial products.

The Beast - a four-extruder synchronous build FDM 3D Printer

Four heads are better than one…

Having seen banks of desktop FDM 3D printers building multiple models of the same thing, it’s rather surprising Cultivate3D’s effort is the first multi-extruder 3D printer we’ve seen that can churn out four of the same model onto the same build platform synchronously.

The Beast, as the name would suggest, also has a giant build area, meaning that it has the added versatility of producing large 470 x 435 x 690mm parts, and can still retain detail with reputed resolutions of 1.25 microns on the Z axis and 6.25 microns on the X and Y.

At $1,850 for a self assembly kit, and $3,299 for the built, both options include global delivery, and the machine has a raft of customisable options and add-ons, and there might be even more bargains to be had if it appears as expected on Kickstarter.
