The power of Oculus used to 3D-print a model of Mark Zuckerberg’s dog

If Mark Zuckerberg’s dog could grasp the concepts of marketing and technology, he’d probably object to his starring role in Facebook’s latest video. But alas, Beast is just a cute Silicon Valley dog, and so here we are.

To celebrate Beast’s 6th birthday HBD, li’l guy Facebook made an Oculus employee 3D-print a miniature version of the unofficial company dog.

Zuckerberg posted the video to his page on Tuesday:

It is, in essence, an ad for Oculus Medium, a new VR product that Facebook touts as a tool for artists and creators. To show off the product’s capabilities, the video follows an Oculus artist as he designs a mini version of the dog (a white Puli) before sending it to print in Facebook’s hardware lab.

“Beast was pretty confused, but I love that we have the technology and culture where people just make things like this for fun,” Zuckerberg wrote. “And I think it’s pretty good!”

This isn’t the first time Facebook marketing has worked Zuckerberg’s personal life into video content. In December, the CEO shared a tongue-in-cheek video introducing the world to the homemade AI assistant voiced by none other than Morgan Freeman he built for his family.

Li Zan Wen, a Chinese designer came up with the HENG Balance Lamp. “HENG” is Chinese for Balance. The wooden balls in the simple wooden frame are used as a light switch. The way of pulling the switch is inspired by the old “pulling switches” in our childhood memories.

The product appearance and design are based on the traditional Chinese round fans and window frames. The lights are placed inside the ring-shaped frame and when you turn the lights on, the frame will lit, creating an ethereal Zen feeling. It will bring joy to a boring and monotonous life; it creates interaction between you and the product.

A high-quality beech wood material is chosen, because it represents the warm feeling of nature. Heng Balance Lamp is put on Kickstarter to get it funded and to realize HENG! The funding is going very well!
