Print your own flute
http://www.newscientist.com/blogs/ns...own-flute.html

Cheap 3D printers can now quickly make plastic replicas of almost anything, from an insect's wings to copies of their own parts. But now Amit Zoran and his team from the MIT Media Lab have used one to recreate the intricate design of a flute (see video above).

A flute? Not bad. But how about the intricate design of the human brain, including a cool rubber removable tumor?

I built this one back in the days when I worked at a "medical rapid prototyping" shop.

Yeah, we even put the big Medtronic logo in the base. It was for showing off some surgical Nav gear.

Thanks Tim. I didn't draw it on paper, but I used haptic devices to "sculpt" and draw on the 'puter, and then I hand painted the brain.
