Obama in 3D: Even Better Than the Real Thing

Another first, from LivingScience:


To his list of firsts, Barack Obama can add that he was the first U.S. President to have himself scanned and 3D printed.

Obama's 3D-printed bust and mold of his face were on display Wednesday (June 18) at the first-ever White House Maker Faire, a celebration of students and entrepreneurs who are using technology to create new products and businesses, according to the Smithsonian Institution.

Unfortunately the 3D version of our first Black President appears to be all white, obviously a racist right wing plot. It did seem to accurately capture his likeness otherwise, right down to the thin skin.

In other news, Big Guy awarded Retired Marine Cpl. William “Kyle” Carpenter the Medal of Honor at a White House ceremony.


All I can say is this is a better look than she sported for the posthumous MOH ceremony for  U.S. Army Sergeant First Class Jared C. Monti,

butt maybe you can add your thoughts.

Finally, Raj ordered me a 3D printer and android app, so pretty soon I’ll be able to print my own endless supply if 3D Big Guys. The app does have some drawbacks; for example, just like Big Guy himself, it takes forever to actually complete the job and the final product is exceptionally small. small bo
