The 'Blitz Panther', a cat robot that was featured in the February 2010 Shapeways newsletter is now one of a collection! Now available are:

The 'Wolverex', a wolverine-type robot and the Blitz Panther's biggest rival:

And for those of you with no interest in robot statues, also available is the brand new 'Eyebox'. An unusual container for jewellery, keys, coins or stuff that with a quick twist will open in a most unexpected and pleasing way.

I work here
These are incredibly cool!

I was wondering how smoothly the eyebox cases open and close though, since I imagine SF might cause some friction.

Thanks! I've built the larger Eyebox a couple of times now and it runs quite smoothly once it has been cleaned out. It 'sounds' a bit rough, but the movement is smooth enough. It's visually interesting whether you choose to open the box quickly or slowly - when slowly opened, you can see the lashes sliding over each other, when quickly it's almost instant. You hear a 'snapping' sound as you open it quickly which is quite pleasing!
