Innovative Dad Pulls Son’s Baby Tooth Using Flying Drone

Apparently the “slamming door” method was just too boring for Malcolm Swan and his brave son, Adam. Instead, the pair removed Adam’s baby tooth the good old fashioned way—by tying it to a DJI Phantom Quadcopter and then letting the drone rip.

Dispensing Solder Paste With A 3D Printer

There’s a strange middle ground in PCB production when it comes to making a few boards. Dispensing solder paste onto one board is easy enough with a syringe or toothpick, but when pasting up even a handful of boards, this method gets tiresome. Solder paste stencils speed up the process when you’re doing dozens or hundreds of boards, but making a stencil for just a few…
