The Raspberry Pi is a cheap, creditcard-sized mini-computer developed for charitable and educational purposes.
And of course once you have a Raspberry Pi, you also want a neat computer case for it, for instance one with a Raspberry logo or with a Sin City theme? ;o)

When Marty McFly accidentally activates the DeLorean time machine of his friend Dr. Emmet "Doc" Brown and gets stranded in 1955, there isn't enough plutonium left to get him back home to 1985...
The 1955 "Doc" realizes that the only thing powerful enough to recharge the depleted energy cells would be a bolt of lightning...

Kirin Beverage is at it again, making some fun papercraft games for the summer! First is the "suikawari" ("watermelon splitting") game, which works a bit like a Mexican "piñata": the player gets blindfolded, and has to hit the watermelon with a stick until it cracks!
(the paper version though works by trying to hit the four levers on the side with your finger; and you can't eats the split pieces afterwards of course! ;o)
The Kame House is Master Roshi's home in the Dragon Ball series, on a (very) small island in the midlle of the sea, and often serves as a gathering place for Goku and his friends whenever Earth is in trouble again...

Most people probably know by now that I'm a *big* fan of the classic Tomb Raider games, but of course I also love the "next-gen" installments, so in 2007, I made a papercraft version of Lara Croft from Tomb Raider: Legend ! ;o)

In HALO, the rank of "Arbiter" is said to be a very ceremonial and religious one, but simply put, they are the fanatics that get sent on sure suicide missions by the Covenant; until one of them makes up his own mind...

Just like any other country, the Netherlands are getting hit hard by the worsening global economy all around as well, but especially in the real estate market...
So developers like KOW are trying all kinds of things to promote their projects, like making neat papercraft models for the kids! ;o)
3M Scotch made tons of cute little animals, vehicles and other neat little papercraft models for the summer! You'll have to navigate the Flash tool to get to the PDF files, but don't worry, it's really easy:

The Tomb Raider 2 Venetian motorboat was the first papercraft model I made with the help of
the Pepakura Designer program, so it's great to see new papercrafters like Amanda-Lara1996
still enjoying it! ;o)
The 1998 video game "Unreal" was a first-person shooter set on an alien planet enslaved by the Skaarj; graphics-wise, the game used a new, original 3D game engine that revolutionized the genre and is now used by many other successful video games!
