Coffee Brand Uses 1000 Cups of Latte Art to Tell Beautiful Stop-Motion Story

We’ve featured plenty of latte art here, but none quite this sweet. Japanese coffee brand Maxim Stick used a talented team of artists to tell the beautiful story of a boy and girl who fall in love, get married, and then have children. Their children then go on to do the same, with the latte people multiplying as each generation grows.

The artists drew the representations using cocoa powder and foam, then painstakingly altered the numerous cups for each frame of the short but touching story.

Watch it for yourself below, and be sure to check out the behind-the-scenes video as well.

3D Printed Paws Let Rescue Dog Run for the Very First Time

Derby is a rescue dog that was born with a disability which shaped his front paws like flippers, rendering him unable to get around or explore on his own like other dogs.

Foster mom Tara Anderson knew that the technology she worked with everyday at 3D Systems could have life-changing ramifications for Derby. With the help of Animal Ortho Care in Virginia, the team tackled the task of getting Derby truly mobile for the first time in his life.

They began by first creating hand-carved plaster casts of Derby’s front limbs, before moving on to creating a digital image through the use of a 3D scanner. Once a design was arrived on that offered optimal fit, comfort, and mobility, a set of freedom-giving paw prosthetics were printed.

Derby took to the limbs immediately, as if they’d always been a part of his body. He ran and played for the first time as if he had always been able to, and now runs 2-3 miles a day with his new family. Watch the heart-warming video of Derby’s run in the video below (skip to the 2:00 mark).
