My friend and I decided to make the map to Luke Skywalker from "The Force Awakens." Then we took it a dozen steps further.
To be clear, we didn't print the map itself. We printed the flash-drive-shaped object that BB-8 carries around, but with space to fit a real flash drive within it. With this, we came to realize, "What good is a flash drive without a USB port?"
So then we printed a Star Wars themed USB port with over a dozen 3D printed PLA parts. The port is complete with a mechanical descending and lowering vertical port, plus a fully-functional mechanical iris door at the top. The Resistance can finally read USB drives.
