Jewish holidays follow a lunar calendar, and the first day of Hanukkah lands on Thanksgiving this year. It happened only once before, in 1888, but nobody called it Thanksgivukkah back then, and nobody lit a Menurkey. Menorah + Turkey = Menurkey A Menurkey is a mashup of a menorah, the candelabra Jews use to mark the eight nights of Hanukkah, and a turkey, the centerpiece of the Thanksgiving meal.

Imagine a future where the visually impaired can learn through touch, using objects 3D printed inside their classrooms. MakerBot teamed up with Yahoo! Japan to make that future a reality for visually impaired students in Japan. An Unforgettable Experience for the Visually Impaired The Hands On Search pilot program brought a custom device equipped with a MakerBot ® Replicator ® 2 Desktop 3D Printer to a classroom of visually impaired students at the University of Tsukuba. Students used the device’s voice recognition software to search for objects, and the device’s built-in MakerBot Replicator 2 enabled them to print objects right away.
