Ever seen the Matt Damon movie, “Downsizing” where people shrink down to become 3D miniatures to save a lot money and live in tiny luxury homes?
Now you can spend your extra money at the local mall to get a 3D printed miniature of yourself and your family. The company is called Doob and no, it isn’t a joint like the name sounds. Although the Jefferson Airplane song is partly about shrinking yourself with hallucinogens.
So if your tired of flat family photos, then go down to the mall and get a 3D printed Doob of yourself. Prices range from $95.00 to $295.00, depending on how many family mmbers you want . I’m not sure if payment plans are available. And you need to be 3D scanned in person so you can’t make any voodoo dolls.

I had to stop to charge up my electric car at the Fashion Valley Mall after waiting an hour and a half in terrible rainy traffic coming from the Mission Valley Mall. I finally got there and plugged in. I decided to shop for a new computer at the Microsoft Store and was greeted by this friendly, funny robot.
For my job promoting 180 Solar Power, I set appointments at the Reptile Super Show. Here’s a blue camillion, one of my favorite animals there at the San Diego Civic Center.
This is my favorite chameleon photo. The colors are exquisite!
This iguana is such a cool bad boy!
These are some pretty brave kids.
So… what kind of insurance do you need?
Personally, I believe that most reptiles should be left in the wild, but lizards, chameleons, and turtles might make good pets. I’m not a snake fan though. I also like to occasionally eat fried frogs legs at the Seaside Buffet in Mira Mesa. They’re so tasty. I can’t help myself!
I had the privilege of being invited to attend the San Diego Comic Festival last weekend for Free by Photoshop impresario, Stephen Burns.
What a smorgasbord of creativity! First, Stephen taught a lesson on how to use Photoshop to create 3-D. Then I went to another suite called the Crescent Room where there was a participatory lecture about how the ancient Hawaiians navigated by direction. Then, back in the design studio, there was a class on 3D printing. The instructor said they couldn’t quite print organs yet for your body, but dentists do use a 3D printer to print replacement teeth. Whole houses have also been 3D printed for the fraction of what they usually cost, even though they don’t compare to most conventional homes. But mostly 3D is being used to print doodads and chachkes like these below.

Then in the same room, a drone seminar started with Josh Freidman. He showed how his drones can showcase Laguna Beach real estate and told us that San Diego county restricts drones for similar purposes. I asked him if he would fly a drone in the room or outside and he said he wouldn’t. That was a real disappointment. But it was interesting to learn about drones and how they can be used with Adobe Lightroom to create panoramic photography.
Some of the more classic women’s comics.
I went to a seedy AM/PM in Point Loma, a seaside area of San Diego that has both rich & poor people. The cellphone photo is not the best because it was taken at night but I saw this poster for some kind of weird wax toy that has a straw coming out of colored noses. Apparently, the child who plays with this toy is supposed to pick which color nose he/she wants to suck their drink out of. Lovely.
