Skateboards and laserbeams!

Keeping with the laser theme my good friend, Damion Silver sent me over some sample photos of the laser-etched skateboards he created. I believe there will be an extremely limited run available on Digital Gravel next week! Stay tuned! Now all we need is some sharks with frickin’ lasers attached to their heads.

Have a look at the full board after the jump!

  • that’s pretty darn awesome to see on a skateboard. is it a flat skateboard though? i’m wondering how the lasercutters could accommodate the sloped ones as the ones i’ve seen are generally shallow.

    either way, that’s cool!

  • yea! im assuming its still concave – im sure they have little elves over at the factory that specialize in concave laser technology haha

  • the flickr images are broken but i remember seeing that project – there was an Alife deck and a Mike Giant deck and like 20 other artists – great stuff

  • Very niiice!

35mm Camera Made Entirely with 3D Printing

slo2

SLO is a 35mm camera created by 3D designer Amos Dudley, every part of which is 3D printed, including the lenses (although those took about 5 – 6 hours to be sanded down by hand). Designed with a modular lens and shutter system, the lenses can be swapped in/out and longer exposure photos achieved using the shutter buttons along the top. More images of SLO below! You can also check out Dudley’s blog here, where he documented the entire project.
