- For Your Home
An espresso cup specially designed with fins, to ensure the successful deployment of your rocket fuel. All systems are go! Paraboloid bowl holds approximately 1.5 fl oz. or 45 mL. (Note that I previously claimed the cup held 60 mL. While my 3D modelling software still reports that as the internal volume, some combination of the printing process and glazing is robbing me of internal volume. Contact me if you'd be interested in a larger, more expensive 60 mL cup.)
After receiving feedback from Shapeways, I've created a slightly revised model for the cup. I'm told that this model will be easier to print and glaze, leading to a more reliable product. The changes are minor -- it's a little wider, a little heavier, and has more rounding on edges that were previously sharp (a 3D rendering shows the differences above).
Update (April 13th, 2013): The cup has had a great run on Shapeways, and I deeply appreciate the attention and positive feedback it has received. The bad news is that I've got to stop offering it for sale here. The good news is that the cup is now available commercially! It's being manufactured by Fred and Friends, sold under the name "Blast Off! Espresso Cup Set". It's already available for purchase online (perpetualkid.com, thinkgeek.com), and I'm sure you'll be able to find it in your favourite housewares store soon.

The lens fits in a recess in the model and is held in place with a few tiny drops of Superglue. If you get any glue on the lens it can cleaned off with nail polish remover or acetone. The lens is plano-convex (one side is flat). When inserted in the holder, the flat side of the lens faces the phone.
Note that the lens fits pretty snugly into the opening. Try fitting the lens before applying any glue. A good technique is, with the lens holder laying face-down on a table, lay the lens in position, and then push it into the recess by poking the lens with the eraser-end of a pencil. Once you know the lens fits cleanly, push it back out and put two tiny drops of superglue on opposite edges of the opening. I use a toothpick to apply the glue because squeezing the superglue directly out of the tube risks putting on too much. Then push the lens back in the same way as in the test fit.

Escher’s Playground - Reminiscent of the upside-down staircase paintings by Escher, this 7x7x7 maze will soon have you forgetting which way is up and down. The dimensions of this maze are 40mm by 40mm by 40mm and the ball is 9mm in diameter.
Floating Labyrinth - The ball appears to float through an intricately
connected matrix. What appears to be open paths are mysteriously blocked
in this 6x6x6 maze. The dimensions of this maze are 31mm by 31mm by 31mm
and the ball is 8mm in diameter.
Zig Zag Zog - You will learn to zig zag
in three dimensions to solve this 5x5x5 maze, but watch out for the
pitfalls! The dimensions of this maze are 24mm by 24mm by 24mm and the
ball is 7mm in diameter.
by pushing the ball into the spring loaded entrance ( it looks like a
backwards “J”). Tip the maze in different directions to roll the ball
along the paths through the maze. Don’t worry, if you make a wrong turn,
the ball will not fall out of the maze. If the ball runs into a dead-end
you can just roll the ball back the opposite way and try another path,
that’s all part of this fun brain game. When you reach the exit there is
a spring loaded button to press to release the ball from the maze. The
exit is in a corner of the 3D maze, where you will find a bar with the
little button sticking out from the side of the maze.
Each maze game come with the ball attached by a little chain link cage for shipping. This needs to be cut off and cut open with scissors and the ball will fall out. Note that each larger size maze comes with a larger ball. The balls can quickly and easily be colored with a highlighter or marker. Let the ball dry for a minute after applying then roll between clean white paper to remove excess color so it does not rub off on the maze. Paint for plastic models can also be used. The orange, green and black balls in the pictures were colored with highlighters or markers. Coloring the ball makes it easier to track in the Labyrinth maze.

The buttons arrived thinner than I expected (royal blue photo); I have since adjusted them to be thicker and sturdier (purple buttons photo.)
This object is a three-dimensional maze consisting of a complex network of thin tubes held in a rigid frame. A small ball is located within the maze and can move freely.The rule of the game is simple: try to move the ball from one end to the other (see the photo with two red circles showing the ends) by rotating the maze in your hands.
Have fun !
