Follows are instructions on how to get a ton of 3D celebrity models for about $10. It takes about an afternoon to accomplish.

1) Get a DSLR and set lens to 35mm and aperture to F10
2) Go to your local wax museum
3) Take clear, crisp, bright pictures of each celebrity likeness from all angles
4) Download 123D Catch
5) Load the pictures one celebrity at a time into the software
6) Save the model as an .obj and do whatever you want with it.

The best part about going to the wax museum is they often have celebrities both living and dead. Historical figures? No problem. I now have a 3D model of the entire last supper.

For more detailed instructions and some of the models, check out the instructable.

SOOOOOO.. You had kids but you also want a life?  SOLUTION:

The Optimization of Parenthood is a robot arm which reacts whenever a baby placed in the bassinet cries or awakes from sleep. The arm will speed up if the baby cries and it can also offer a bottle of milk or a favorite toy.

Broke parents are often pigeonholed into being full time parents, the cost of childcare sucks every penny away so even if they want to continue their creative work, they can’t economically swing it. Its often not so much a choice as it is, what we call The Default to Suck. As a result, the parent, and in reality, almost always the mother,  loses the very creative practice they spent an entire life building.  The result? We end up on medication, angry, depressed and/or bitches who need a shower.

If however, we could eliminate much of the routine, tedious, monotony of parenting while still continuing a creative practice we will have optimized the process of parenting without loses what makes us interesting. Automatic repetitive parenting task can be transferred to devices, without affecting ‘the development of the baby’ while still letting the parent live up to their fullest breeder and artistic potential.

Winning.

Already have your robot arm laying around and just need the code to get your life back? Here you go.
