God why can't people make gifs that loop at a decent frequency? It can't be that hard to not make some useless, jerky piece of crap.

Yeah it was kinda pissing me off too. Here:

Thanks Slinky

Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

The Obduction/Myst guys sent out an update tonight and they plugged the Storium Kickstarter, which is a online game based around telling stories and making them with your friends.

Sounds like the kind of thing we used to do!

Anyway not really a plug since it's already over-funded. But check it out nonetheless.

Neat hope it delivers and some of us get a chance to play together.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Every time I see this I think, 'Neat, but what would I actually do with it?'

Nothing. I got nothing.
use your imagination man

you can literally wrap concrete structures with resins and cloth to make certain areas earthquake-proof, so something like this 3d extruder might prove useful in its own right... like using derivatives of this technology to immediately make repairs, reinforce objects.  think of drawing trusses or just profile tracing something to increase load-bearing capacity

creating flexible/openair casts for broken/sprained limbs, injectable woundhealing/bloodclotting or diy dental casting

what i would really love to see is something which 3d prints using water at below-freezing, that would be so fun and cheap i imagine

Dude you can't do any of what you just described with a pen.

The kickstarter isn't asking for a billion dollars to develop a concrete extrusion machine that sets superfast for making earthquake-proof buildings.

Its for a pen that makes wireframe dicks.

Hm... I also feel similar about the Sorium game, oddly enough. >_>

was speaking of possible derivatives of the technology, not the pen

cyanoacrylates already set fast and i doubt it would cost a billion to improve and scale up

I mean, the kickstarter I linked to is basically a usb hot glue gun.  I just think it would be neat to play with.
Probably not a Goat, either.

So what kind of feedback loop would they get from the site being listed as a trope on itself?

They jumped the shark years ago dude. I think this is an attempt to reboot the franchise.

The issue tv tropes suffered is the fact anyone can curate it, which meant it got bloated with totally superfluous and un-noteworthy bull****.

That's the same complaint for almost any other wiki out there.
