A 3-D printed Thermoplastic skull

A 3D printed Thermoplastic skull
Gear  |  Tech


This is the 3-D printed thermoplastic skull recently transplanted on a 22-year old woman's head who has a condition that prevents her regular skull from ever stop growing thicker. So they cut the top off of that one and replaced it with a 3D-printed implant made of polyetherketoneketone(PEKK, a thermoplastic). Watch a video of the process, and a shot of the skull after transplant.
"The skull, made by an Australian firm, is actually fairly transparent. Lots of plastics can be transparent -- acrylics, polycarbonates, etc. -- but the stringent medical requirements, and also print requirements, place limits on the possible. While the transparency may be incidental, the picture above shows the clear advantage of such transparency: one can see the underlying brain and vasculature. Not only is this a nice feedback to see how things are going macroscopically, it also entices with potential to optically image activity in the brain like never before."

Gear  |  Video
"When Jay (Segel) and Annie (Diaz) first got together, their romantic connection was intense – but ten years and two kids later, the flame of their love needs a spark. To kick things up a notch, they decide – why not? – to make a video of themselves trying out every position in The Joy of Sex in one marathon three-hour session. It seems like a great idea – until they discover that their most private video is no longer private.

How Much It Costs to Propose at Every Major League Baseball Stadium

How Much It Costs to Propose at Every Major League Baseball
Gear  |  Pic
Today is Opening Day for the 2014 MLB season, the start of the 2014 season. That means it’s also the time of year for America’s second-favorite pastime: the scoreboard marriage proposal. Swimmingly reached out to all 30 MLB teams to find out the cost of putting a ring (World Series or otherwise) on it at each stadium.
"Though all proceeds go to charity, exactly what’s offered in a proposal package varies tremendously from ballpark to ballpark — some teams even offer multiple price points. The Indians’ fireworks proposal could be the most romantic option, but the Phillies’ four-ticket package is a surprisingly good value. Of course, if you’re feeling thrifty, you could always tuck a ring in your pocket, wait for a pitching change, then pop the question the old-fashioned way. Here’s hoping that — either way — you don’t strike out."

Dan Zak has created this excellent flowchart, for readers of the Washington Post to figure out which store best suits them.
"A corridor scorched by the 1968 riots and seeded by the 2000 opening of what was then Fresh Fields (now Whole Foods Market) near 14th and P has reached full bloom several blocks north near 14th and U, where Trader Joe’s has sprouted as a bookend of privileged grocery goodness. Friday afternoon, four hours into its existence, Trader Joe’s bustled with suits and scenesters and the neighborhood curious, zipping past frozen pizzas whose crusts are made with “ancient grains,” chatting cheerfully with a lei-laden staff."

The idea of the PL-01 is to try and eliminate the infrared, radar and visual signature of the traditional tank to a large degree, while also relying on guile to take identity masking a step further. Watch the video of it, cool.

An enormous helium-filled wind turbine will soon float over the city of Fairbanks, Alaska to produce enough electricity for more than a dozen families living off the grid. Designed and built by MIT startup Altaeros Energies, the turbine known as BAT-Buoyant Airborne Turbine will hover at an altitude of 1,000 feet for 18 month. The turbine will be filled with Helium and allowed to go up 1,000-2,000 feet where it’ll be able to generate twice as much power as a ground-based structure. While it’s up there, it’ll also serve as a WiFi hotspot, providing not only power but Internet connectivity to the families currently living off the grid in these remote areas.
