Printearth is making the 3D printer revolution biodegradable

Comments

printearth

Printearth is an Ottawa based startup which specializes in manufacturing 100% biodegradable plastic filaments for 3D printers. Plastic filament is essentially the ink for 3D printers since it’s melted and applied in thin layers by the printer to produce physical objects. The current industry standards are either petroleum based plastics or PLA. Even though PLA is a bioplastic, it’s only compostable in commercial composters.

Shot Roulette is an awesome drinking game for BlackBerry 10

BlackBerry is all about business these days but all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Shot Roulette is a fun game to play and unwind with your friends (up to 6 players).

Shot Roulette is played just how you think. Either you “Take a Bullet”, “Dodge a Bullet”, “Misfire” or “Send a Bullet” to a friend. The infamous “Take a Bullet” card is where the fun starts – if you draw this card it’s your turn to take a shot. If you pick up the “Dodge a Bullet” card, don’t sweat, you’re spared from this round’s shot. If you get a “Misfire” card, you can save it to dodge a future bullet! And if you’re lucky enough to get the “Send a Bullet” card, choose a friend and give ‘em a shot.

SignEasy is one of the best productivity apps available on mobile. It makes signing documents a breeze and even though it’s an Android port, the app works great on BlackBerry 10. Recently, the app has had some major updates including:

  • Ability to prefill forms
  • Automatic backup of important documents
  • Ability to sign in using another device in an emergency situation
  • Sign offline even while not connected to the internet

If you’re a BlackBerry 10 user, the company has said “We are going to look at the response that we get from BlackBerry 10 users before we decide to update the app.” So make sure to Tweet at the company and let them know in the comments on their site. Surely they’ll be able to update the Android port on BlackBerry 10 quite easily.

Learn more about the updates at the SignEasy blog.
