Jaguar’s electric I-Pace takes the World Car of the Year award

3D Printed Hermit Crab Shells Let Crabs Carry Tiny Cities on Their Backs

If you are a hermit crab, your home is whatever you find for your shell. Artist Aki Inomata makes 3D printed shells for hermit crabs to set up their homesteads inside of. These shells have little buildings and cityscapes on top. So these crabs are living in these various cities. Or under them.

Aki starts with a CAT scan of an actual hermit crab shell to make sure it’s an acceptable shape for a little crab to fit in, then she 3D models and prints the shell with a building or cityscape on the back. Do these crabs even know how cool their new shells are? Do they know that they are carrying cities on their back? Do they feel the weight on their shoulders and in their soul? Actually, they don’t have shoulders. My bad.

These shells are very nicely detailed. Congrats to Aki for giving nature’s creatures some cool new bling. These creatures don’t even need to shell out any money. Get it? I guess they have the world under their feet and a city on their back. Wait… Technically they are wearing the world beneath them. We all are. Whoa. Mind blown. I’m shell-shocked.

Our favorite camera bags (that don’t look like camera bags)

We love Lowepro and Manfrotto backpacks. They're often big, well-padded and offer tons of support for your aching back and shoulders. If you've invested in a mirrorless system, however, they can also feel like overkill. Many photographers (ourselves...
