The iStab

FTL0DYOHHS9R3BU.MEDIUM

The iStab is a 3D printed iPhone cover which has a folding knife along one edge, producing a blade whenever you might need one. This phone case is “cutting edge”, and is designed as an exploration in conceptual 3D printed weapons.

The models I based this idea from are free, and the programs needed edit the 3D files are also free.

I love these 3D printing disclaimers: “Blades such as the one shown in this project are considered weapons by law enforcement. This project is provided for educational use only and should not be replicated.”

Uh-huh. That’s why you include material lists, tools and software links.

Via Instructables for the full instructions.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
