--- The star of the show: my 3D printed handbag! ---
I had the great pleasure to be at The Project NZ TV show this evening (can be watched online for free, link below).
I was invited to talk about KillaJoule and the upcoming Big Boys Toys that is this weekend here in Auckland, NZ. However, the hosts were more interested in my 3D printed handbag with built-in LED light. It keeps amazing me how much people love that bag. I mean, why wouldn't I make my own bag to my exact desired specification when I made my own motorcycle..? ;-) If you know CAD (Computer Aided Design, which I teach at UoA) and 3D printing, you can make anything that can be manufactured from plastics.
Thank you James Cozens for landing this fun TV appearance for me!
