Open Source Clothing.
Now I feel it imperative to reblog this, because the project seems to have hit a snag: The video they put up has been taken down because of claims of 3rd-party content, whatever whatever corporate lawyer stuff internet throttling stuff. That makes me think that Bennetton or one of the others whose stores were glimpsed in the background got their hooks in Vimeo.
So I thought I’d tell you a yarn about how this thing works:
You download the open-source plans for the machine.
You build it.
You download their open-souce clothing-maker program.
You enter the desired measurements into the fields (the ones I remember from the video were arm and neck and chest measurements, so I’m sure they have waist and/or hips too)
You print out your sweater, or hat, or scarf, or cardigan, or whatever it was that you selected. It takes an hour to print out the sweater, working off of the two yarn spools that you can see in the bottom right corner of this .gif
That’s it. Custom-fit, custom-color clothing in an hour, for the price of yarn. Can you see why one of the clothing companies targetted in the video might have felt threatened enough to force the video to come down?
its really not that hard. 1 GT shirt with a hood takes 3 teeshirts and transfer paper. we all went to the thrift store so it cost maybe …. 5$ a person? (we didnt order the offical ones cause they wouldnt have gotten in the mail on time….and cause theyre expensive @n@;;;)
-get 1 shirt that fits you in the color you want
-get 1 shirt that same color but XL sized
-get 1 shirt the color of your symbol XL sized (this will be the inside of your hood)
-cut the two XL shirts down the side and open it up
-trace a hood you already own or make your own hood shape for both colors (keep in mind this is t-shirt fabric were using so its going to be a bit more floppy then a hoody)
-cut the 4 shapes out and sew the colors together SEPORATLY (so you should have 2 hoods when you are done.) make sure you only sew the BACK part of the hood, NOT where your head goes or where your face pokes out.
-flip the hoods inside out and pin them together where the hole for you face is.
-sew it up
-flip the hoods so that they are not inside out, iron, sew a seam around the rim to keep it from bubbling
-take your shirt, stick hood inside shirt and sew along colar seam
-find your symbol online, print on to transfer paper
-iron on shirt
-run around like a ar-tard CAUSE YOU A GOD NOW.

Carry a Klefki with you ⊟
One of the weirdest creatures introduced in XY, Klefki, which is a dang set of keys, is something real world people — not just Pokemon people — can put in their pockets now.
Tony Sarkees (maker of the Ace Attorney and Tiny Cartridge 3DS XL cases) put up this Klefki keyring on Etsy earlier today. Unsurprisingly, someone’s already bought it — I mean, it’s got immunity to Poison and Dragon, come on. No way that was going to stay in stock for long.
Paint primary colors on fan wings

THATS SO ADORABLE
So being in college it seemed like a perfectly rational thing to build a fully-functioning Wii into a toaster. Say hello to the <i>Nintentoast.</i>
just imagine the possibilities
