  • @twitter-25657753:disqus is what it is. this is great tho.

  • Neat project. Thanks for sharing, Jeff. Though having experienced the 2010 games, one has got to wonder if the IOC will crack down on these businesses and/or the project/book….

    • Alessandro

      then, a class action would be required… do they think Olympic games are a private property? Can’t believe how far we’ve gone with this finance/market silly stuff

  • like it! more illegals please!

  • Shanelee

35mm Camera Made Entirely with 3D Printing


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.
