Bathe with a dinosaur thanks to Zooheads’ 3D-printed showerheads

You may not be able to walk alongside dinosaurs anymore, but now, you can shower with them. Meet Zooheads, a Brooklyn-based brand that has taken to selling unique 3D-printed showerheads that look nothing like the ones you’re accustomed to. These aren’t chrome waterfall nozzles — rather, they are 3D-printed and animal themed, and best of all, available in 20 different colors. Because nothing says “fun adult” like a shower embellished with a dragon’s head.

Zooheads, a spinoff of 3D-printing company Voodoo Manufacturing, is kicking off its launch and website with a total of 11 showerhead options, which are available in no fewer than 20 different colors. So rest assured that your shower won’t look like anyone else’s — after all, not all that many people have pink dolphins in their bathrooms. To some extent, you can even claim that your showerhead is custom made. Zooheads is committed to selling and manufacturing showerheads on an on-demand basis without inventory. That means that the company won’t create your eagle showerhead in light blue until you placed an order for that particular product. But don’t worry — this doesn’t mean that you will be waiting for months to add some pizazz to your shower. Rather, Zooheads says that its average showerhead takes about eight hours to print and will ship within two days.

“The idea [for Zooheads] originated when I created a now-famous T-rex skull shower head,” Jonathan Schwartz, co-founder and Chief Product Officer of Voodoo Manufacturing, said in a statement. “In 2014, I designed this showerhead and posted it to the Thingiverse, the popular 3D-printing file sharing site. Quickly after posting the design, it went viral, so we thought, why not make this a business? We’re super stoked to make cool showerheads and look forward to creating new lines around pop-culture!”

All of the new products are priced at $30 and include free shipping. Currently available options include a T-rex skull, elephant, dolphin, alligator, dragon, dragon skull, lion, gorilla, eagle, and shark. Color variants, on the other hand, include white, black, grey, silver, light blue, blue, navy blue, pink, red, orange, neon orange, light orange, hazel, gold, lime green, green, neon green, and — why not — glow in the dark. But don’t think that the company is just stopping at animals. After this initial launch, Zooheads is dedicated to adding “new themed lines” to its website.

AMD teases performance of its revolutionary 3D V-cache chip
AMD CEO holding 3D V-Cache CPU.

AMD is currently readying its new Ryzen 7 5800X3D, featuring a 3D V-cache, and it looks like we may soon have a powerful processor on our hands. AMD has teased that we can expect an up to 15% performance boost over the base Ryzen 7 5800X.

The tech giant talked about the new chip during the International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSSC) and revealed more information about its architecture. While the Ryzen 7 5800X3D will certainly be an improvement, will it be enough to compete with Intel's best processors?

Windows 11 may get the 3D emojis we were promised
Clippy returns to Windows 11 as an emoji.

Microsoft shipped new emojis in Windows 11 last year, but they caused quite some controversy as the emojis weren't actually 3D as the company first teased. There was never an explanation for that change in design, but it is now looking as though the originally promised 3D emoji could still be in the works.

Though Microsoft itself hasn't recently said anything about 3D emoji on its official channels, one of its employees sent indications about it. In a response to a tweet from a Windows 11 user lamenting the lack of 3D emoji, Nando Costa, who is the visual artist and design leader at Microsoft Design, said: "Thank you and agreed! We're working on that."

AMD’s 3D-stacked Ryzen 7 5800X3D is ‘world’s fastest gaming processor’
AMD CEO presenting new CPU.

The first processor to use a 3D V-Cache technology was announced at the big AMD CES 2022 keynote. The tech was first announced at Computex 2021, and fans have been eagerly awaiting a processor that will put it to use.

That processor is the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, which seems like a strange place to start a new range of processors. AMD has its Ryzen 9 chips, after all. That's because the new Ryzen 7 can outclass AMD's Ryzen 9 5900X while gaming, despite using the same architecture.
