For the latest in my Pet Projects experiments, I built an electric skateboard for my cat to ride.
Put a treat into the throttle lever, and she pulls it to get a snack and a boost!

I’m a newbie to building skateboards, and want to thank commenters who have pointed that the longboard trucks are mounted backwards! So if you do try to build (you or your cat) a board with longboard trucks – don’t make the same mistake I did, and do some research first 🙂

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
