    Haha, very cool! Just the other week I was actually at and aliens marathon with a few friends, so this is still pretty fresh in my memory.

    Check it out! Independently targeting particle beam phalanx. Vwap! Fry half a city with this puppy. We got tactical smart missiles, phase-plasma pulse rifles, RPGs, we got sonic electronic ball breakers! We got nukes, we got knives, sharp sticks...

    I will present an imporved design with realsitc shape, better wheels and more details:
    (Prototype printed on a HP DesignJet 3D)
    For reducing the material cost for the prototype printing the Model is designed like a plastic kit :eek:

    For Shapeways the body will be complete printed. Wheels and Guns are separate.

    Hey tengel,

    I removed the second image in your post directly above as it contained the URL of a competing service. We're not too fond of that ;) Maybe you can block it out?
