    Israeli designers Dov Ganchrow and Ami Drach recreated stone age tools. These prehistoric flint tools were three-dimensionally scanned at the Hebrew University's Institute of Archaeology. Then, specialized extensions and handles were printed by 3-D printing firm Stratasys out of polymer, the parts were then prepared and assembled on the original flint hand-axes, effectively joining the two most temporally distant making technologies: flint knapping and 3D printing.
    "Any multi-tool becomes specialized when frozen at a single moment in time during its use," says Ganchrow. "The first stage of the project was one of hastened evolution and bleeding: flint rocks of desirable size, shape and material quality were sourced from the Negev desert in southern Israel, while time was spent improving and understanding the skill of knapping. Basically this involved the striking of flint with a softer stone (historically a striking bone or antler was also used) to create controlled breakage, and chipping away flint flakes as the impact’s shock wave runs through the stone. Needless to say this is where the bleeding came in..."

    Nearly 5,000 miles of abandoned railways criss-cross the the landscape in Mexico and Ecuador, left dormant for decades after privatization of the national system suspended passenger service in 1995. Two Guadalajara-born artists wanted to travel the paths of these "modern ruins," so together they designed what just might be the coolest hybrid of all time.
    Artists Ivan Puig and Andrés Padilla Domene (Los Ferronautas) built their striking silver road-rail SEFT-1 vehicle to explore the abandoned passenger railways of Mexico and Ecuador, capturing their journeys in videos, photographs and collected objects.

    The stuffed animals captured in Mark Nixon’s book, Much Loved, have been treasured and lost, used and occasionally abused, but never forgotten. The idea to document these lifetime companions occurred to Nixon when he started noticing his son’s devotion to his stuffed Peter Rabbit. “I was struck by … the way he squeezed it with delight when he was excited, the way he buried his nose in it while sucking his thumb, and how he just had to sleep with Peter every night,” Nixon wrote in the introduction to his new book, which is published by Abrams. “I vaguely remembered having similar childhood feelings about my own Panda.” More images jump more.

    "It’s been one year since Oh Joy, Sex Toy started and we’ve collected a mighty 52 strips coming to 220+ book sized pages, all of which you can find and read online here! The purpose of this Kickstarter is to collect these hundreds of pages into a lovely soft cover book that will include everything that appeared online, as well as dozens of pages of brand new comics, essays, and behind-the-scenes peeks at the process of creating OJST. We want to make a beautiful book to give back to our supporters and fans for them to use, share, and love.
    Alongside all the work Erika has made for Oh Joy, Sex Toy, we’ve hired different guest artists to help give us alternative comics, bringing a regular splash of fresh humor and a new perspective on the sex world. Finding and paying great artists to showcase their work on OJST is something we’re super proud of. In addition to helping us raise the funds to create the book, we’ll also be raising funds to pay our former guest artists a retroactive bonus per page and afford a greater page rate to our upcoming artists."

    X.pose is a wearable data-driven sculpture that changes opacity to expose a person's skin as a real-time reflection of the data that the wearer is producing. Designed by Xuedi Chen & Pedro G. C. Oliveira.
    "A server and mobile app were built to collect Xuedi, the designer's geolocation data over time to use as the basis for a personalized 3D printed flexible mesh. Using arduino and bluetooth, the app communicates with a layer of reactive displays that reflects the trails of information that she produces. These displays are divided up into patches that represent neighborhoods and change in opacity depending on the wearer's current location. If she is in the NYU neighborhood, that area will be the most active, pulsing, revealing her current location, revealing the fact that her data is being collected and at the same time exposing her skin. As her data emissions are collected, the more transparent and exposed she will become."

    Brainflight is a project by Technische Universität München, researching brain-controlled flight.
    "Seven subjects took part in the flight simulator tests. They had varying levels of flight experience, including one person without any practical cockpit experience whatsoever. The accuracy with which the test subjects stayed on course by merely thinking commands would have sufficed, in part, to fulfill the requirements of a flying license test. “One of the subjects was able to follow eight out of ten target headings with a deviation of only 10 degrees,” reports Fricke. Several of the subjects also managed the landing approach under poor visibility. One test pilot even landed within only few meters of the centerline"

    The Raglite(on kickstarter) lighting system, which offers a flexible, roll-up LED bank of lights, can offer lighting in any situation.
    "But the RagLites aren't just designed for professional photographers. They do allow for unique setups in studio sessions that traditional rigid lighting can't pull off, but its creators have made cheaper and smaller versions designed for regular consumer use as well. Whether it's mood lightning under a bed, or as an emergency work light you can just crumple up and toss in the trunk of your car."
