3Doodler

· · · Design

My 3Doodler (Kickstarter link) has finally arrived after backing the project on 20th February 2013!

What is 3Doodler?

3Doodler is the world’s first and only 3D Printing Pen. Using ABS plastic (the material used by many 3D printers), 3Doodler draws in the air or on surfaces. It’s compact and easy to use, and requires no software or computers. You just plug it into a power socket and can start drawing anything within minutes.

It got successfully funded on the 25th March 2013 after raising USD$2,344,134 despite their initial goal was only USD$30,000.

My pledge was the COLOR-TASTIC which consists of the 3Doodler pen, 10 bags of plastic (each bag a different colour) and a Hall of Fame mention. It cost USD$99 + USD$10 (for shipping). Totalling to USD$109 ~= SGD$137.

The shipment date was supposed to be in October 2013 but it is very normal for Kickstarter projects to get delayed for up to 3 months and hence I received mine on the 27th November 2013.

The courier used was Toll, so I am guessing quite a lot of people in Singapore backed it. They shipped batch by batch of it to Singapore and get Toll to distribute to us individually.

This 3Doodler is meant for Li Xiang, so I can only show the unboxing pictures while she clears her work and allocate some time to do some 3Doodling! I will update this blog post on the actual 3Doodle when she does it!

Timbuk2 Catapult Cycling Messenger Bag

The Timbuk2 Catapult Cycling Messenger Bag is retailing for SGD$69 and after the 30% media discount, I paid SGD$48.30.

The Catapult Cycling Messenger Bag is available in 2 sizes, the medium and the large. For the medium, there are 5 designs and for the large, there are 3 designs.

Medium

  • Ripstop Carbon / ballistic nylon Carbon / Ripstop Carbon
  • Poly Tweed Confetti / nylon aloha blue / Poly Tweed Confetti
  • Recycled PET bixi / Plaid bixi / Recycled PET bixi
  • Ballistic nylon night blue / pacific / night blue
  • Nylon black

Large

  • Ripstop Carbon / ballistic nylon Carbon / Ripstop Carbon
  • Ballistic nylon night blue / pacific / night blue
  • Nylon black

I chose the medium size with “Poly Tweed Confetti / nylon aloha blue / Poly Tweed Confetti” design.

I wanted to get the Catapult Cycling Messenger Bag after seeing Justin Lee using it. I like the bag because it is compact. It fits an iPad with smart cover in the padded sleeve compartment and for the main compartment, it will even fit a 13″ MacBook Air. I think Justin even managed to squeezed in a 13″ MacBook Pro Retina.

Moshi iGlaze Armour (Bronze) – Metallic Case For iPhone 5/5s

The Moshi iGlaze Armour is a metallic case for the iPhone 5/5s and is retailing for SGD$54.90. It is available in Bronze, Silver and Black to match the colours of the iPhone 5/5s.

The build of this case is solid because the backplate is made up of aluminium and the case itself is made up of polycarbonate.

It has an open bottom which means you are able to use a lightning cable with a large base like the Innergie Magic Cable Duo With Lightning or any 30-pin cable using the Apple Lightning to 30-pin Adapter.

The power button at the top of the phone and the volume buttons on the left side is exposed as well, not really a fan of that because it is prone to scratches when you drop because of the protruding buttons.

The backplate has a circular cutout to showcase the Apple logo, and hence Moshi has included a screen protector for the back (it also comes with a small microfiber cloth).

Despite it being slim, it does add a little bit of weight to your iPhone, 21g to be precise (not really a big deal).

If you are looking for an alternative to a clear case like a gold case to go with your gold iPhone 5s, you might want to consider this.

Features

  • Slim profile protection with a diamond-cut aluminum backplate.
  • All buttons remain easily accessible while resting in iGlaze Armour.
  • Includes a backside buffer film for extra protection against dust and debris.

Where To Buy
You can get the Moshi iGlaze Armour from physical stores such as EpiCentre or Infinite (Apple Shops at Best Denki). Alternatively you can get it online from Ban Leong’s eStore.

Timbuk2 Phoenix Cycling Backpack

Bought the Timbuk2 Phoenix Cycling Backpack together with the Timbuk2 Catapult Cycling Messenger Bag from Timbuk2 Singapore Store because I have a one-time media discount of 30%. The Timbuk2 Phoenix Cycling Backpack is retailing for SGD$169 and after the 30% discount, I paid SGD$118.30.

The Phoenix Cycling Backpack is just available in 1 size which is medium and there are 3 designs you can choose from, nylon carbon / ripstop carbon / nylon carbon, nylon gunmetal / revlon red / revlon red or nylon black.

I chose the nylon carbon / ripstop carbon / nylon carbon.

This backpack has a base capacity of 26L and is capable of expanding to 35L by just loosening the buckle at the bottom. It has a side access to the main compartment and a separate compartment for your laptop.

The laptop compartment fits up to 17″ laptop and you can access it from the side (known as Timbuk2′s Swing Around Access).

I bought this backpack for my upcoming trip to the US because I will be bringing my laptop along and I need the backpack to fit more stuff.

Previously, for most of my trips, I always brought along the Timbuk2 Q Backpack 2011, which can’t really fit much things inside.
