Amazon launches a new custom 3D printing storefront

Amazon 3D Printer Store 02Amazon has launched a new custom 3D Printing Store. While the online retail giant has sold a number of affordable 3D printers for some time now, the new storefront offers a selection of customizable 3D printed items to choose from including phone cases, wallets, home decor items, toys, jewelry, bobble-heads and more.

The amount of customization available varies depending on the item. You’ll see everything from basic color selections to deeper choices like size and texture options as well as custom text and item specific tweaks.

While there are some stock goods that don’t have any customization available, on items like the $30 Bobble-head dolls from Mixee Labs, Amazon has provided a mini editor with everything from hair, eye and face selections as well as outfits with custom text and more. With something like the $60 custom 3D printed cuff links, buyers can choose any 3 letter monogram, the color and material as well as the shape.

We have seen more home 3D printers approaching affordable prices like the upcoming New Matter MOD-t (which is currently up for preorder at $249), but the new 3D Printer Store offers a nice option for those who haven’t dived into the 3D printer space yet. Most of the highly rated and best selling home 3D printers will still run you anywhere from $499 to over $1000.

Jump into the world of LED light bulbs for less than $5 a pop with Ikea Ledare

At this point it’s extremely clear that LED bulbs should be in every light fixture in your house. They last longer (tens of thousands of hours) and use less power (up to 85%) than their incandescent counterparts. The clear environmental benefits coupled with the fact that LED prices have fallen off a cliff recently, have led to a worldwide phase-out of incandescent bulbs. In fact, you can regularly pick up a Philips LED bulb for under $10 a piece, but Ikea has shaken up the budget LED space by introducing its Ledare bulbs for just $4.95 each.

Ledare bulbs can’t be controlled by your iPhone like Philips Hue products or double as a JBL Bluetooth speaker, but they do pack the basic benefits of LED bulbs at bargain pricing. Read more
