 Feeling Nostalgic

GuerillaBeam Slide Holder by universalist

The Guerilla Beam system is seriously cool. It’s a modern take on the old 35mm slide projectors of days gone by; the kind of slide projectors I distinctly remember setting up at my grandparents’ house as a kid to laugh hysterically at how my mom looked as a teen. This project was built to be modular, meaning you pick and choose the parts you want to use. With a wide range of adapters and accessories, it’s setup to work with everything from flashlights to DSLR cameras and lens, meaning there’s a good chance you already have almost everything you need to get up and running. If you’re looking to revive some old slides to get a glimpse into the past, or just turn the bat signal on the sky, this is a really cool project.

 Cat-Like Humanoid Alien
thundercat sasha pinshapeThundercat-1985 by sasha5252

This is a great design for any Thundera emigrant, such as myself. We can show our love for our destructed home planet. Unlike Lion, I don’t have a sword to place the emblem, so I’ll try to stick the emblem on my laptop cover.

In all seriousness, this is a simple design reminiscent of a great and memorable 80s show. I will definitely be printing this off.

 Hungry Hungry Hippohippo pen holder pinshapeHippo Pen Holder by edw0413

I looove animals! Albeit this is a strange way to hold my desktop pens, the design is cute and looks fairly easy to 3D print. Not sure why we find hippos cute.. I’m not sure hippos in real life are affectionate at all. They’re just weird and fatty, which makes them adorable in an awkward way XD Anyhow, the bird is a nice touch!

 Vacation Bound!tiki god of money richard swika pinshapeTiki God of Money by richard_swika

I’m leaving for a vacation and won’t be around next week. You can bet I’ll be spending loads of money— not intentionally, but I’m a huge sucker for tourist traps and gimmicky souvenirs. Maybe this God of Money statue will help me replenish a bit of my savings? I hope so!

Legend of zelda darunia bust pinshape andy bihlmaierLegend of Zelda – Darunia Bust by Andy Bihlmaier

As video games seem to relax and inspire me, this 3D model makes me laugh because of Darunia’s dance moves that he executes with the uttermost confidence:

Go to about 0:45 seconds in…. 🙂
A dance off might need to take place in the future…

These cufflinks and tie bars are a great way to support the community! I’m curious to see what else you guys come up with.

 Wallet Trackerakio wallet clip pinshapeAkio: A Wallet/Clip by ObjectTheory

I’ve been close to losing my wallet. Recently I’ve been using wallet trackers to prevent this.
Regardless of all my efforts, I’m afraid one day I’ll actually lose it. It is great to know that ObjectTheory has uploaded a Clip Wallet which looks amazing and would be cheap to print.
If I lose my wallet, all I would have to think about is getting my cards replaced.

 Still a child ❤mailbot brandon george pinshapeMailbot: the Robot Note Mailbox by Brandon George

Like Agnes from Despicable Me would say: “He is sooo cute, I’m gonna die!” 🙂 This is a thing I would love to see on my desk. I can even hide a small piece of paper with a message in there. I think it’s a great choice for a little present to create or top off a special moment.

We’d love to hear from you! 

That’s it for this week! Which Pinshape design would you have chosen? Check back next week for another set of picks from your Pinshape staff, or subscribe to our mailing list to get this delivered to your inbox every Friday!
