Now there’s a new cool kid in town with 3D-printed limbs. Meet Derby. Derby was born with small front legs and no front paws. The congenital deformity made it impossible for him to get around on surfaces that weren’t soft. But thanks to the 3D printing company 3D Systems, which designed a custom set of legs for the pup, Derby can finally go for a run. Derby was brought to Peace and Paws Dog Rescue in April after his owners could no longer care for him. He quickly found a foster home with Tara Anderson, director of CJP Project Management at 3D Systems. “I kept looking at his photo, and hearing his story, and I cried literally every time,” Anderson said.
Two years ago, Web video illusionist Brusspup created a series of animations using a technique called “Scanimation.” It’s a clever concept in which a single image contains within itself several different frames, which can be “unlocked” in sequence by passing over it a transparent overlay printed with fixed-width bars. Not content with his first go-around, Brusspup has created a new series of animations, based on the same technique but more sophisticated than before.
