3D owl

I got an email a couple of weeks ago from an excited Britta Evans-Fenton, Lab Coordinator at Artengine, to let me know they were about to receive a new 3D printer. They invited us to check it out, so I jumped on the chance and headed to Arts Court where Artengine’s M70 lab is located. While my owl was being printed (see pictures above), we chatted about the brand spanking new Ultimaker 3D printer, Mod Lab and what to expect at this Saturday’s print-a-thon event.

Game Summit is in full swing over the river at the Palais de Congres in Gatineau, and apt613 is hitting the floor to play some… some games of giant Catan? Kafkaesque? Yes. Fun? Also yes! I discovered some brand new board games that now hold a special place in my cold heart. So, now I’ll shut up and dim the lights. The photo blog is below! Created with Admarket’s flickrSLiDR.

But as enamoured as we are with the world of ones and zeroes, it still doesn’t eclipse our love for clunky, physical board games. Nothing beats the joy of setting out a brand new board game, learning the rules, and crushing your friends with epic dice rolls. Multiply that joy by 100, and you have something of an idea of why... | Continue reading article
