The Drinkable Book Is Designed To Purify Water
Gear | Concept


A team of scientists and engineers from carnegie mellon and the university of virginia have developed "the Drinkable Book". It is designed to educate people on how to purify water, and the paper inside the book is used to clean water. Ech book is printed on technologically advanced filter paper capable f killing a range of waterborne diseases like Cholera, Typhoid and E.Coli, and once the water is filtered it is 99.9 percent pure, which is similar to normal drinking water. This idea looks cool.
This filter paper will revolutionize water purification. It costs only pennies to produce, making it by far the cheapest option on the market. Each filter is capable of giving someone up to 30 days worth of clean water, and each book is capable of providing someone with clean water for up to 4 years. Once water is passed through the filter, bacteria count is reduced by over 99.99%, making the filtered water comparable to tap water in the United States of America." The book was designed by Brian Gartside.

"Watching Mister Rogers Neighborhood was kinda like visiting your grandparents except you actually like going especially in the neighborhood of make-believe. The show didn’t rely on gimmicks to hold your attention. The set looked like something you’d make in your basement and the puppets were worn from years of play and affection, showing that you don’t need much to have an amazing adventure – just a bit of imagination"

The Dangers of a Bigger Godzilla

The Dangers of a Bigger Godzilla
Gear | Other
Godzilla has grown larger over the years, as you can see in this graph. In 1954, the movie monster was only 50 meters (164 feet) tall. In the 2014 movie, opening later this month, Godzilla is estimated to be about 150 meters (492 feet) tall. For comparison the Empire State Building in New York City stands at 381 meters (1250 ft). Incarnations of Godzilla went from 13% of the height of the Empire State Building to nearly 40% of the height in just 60 years. Deep Sea News crunches the numbers to study this size change and speculate on its meaning.
So why is Godzilla obtaining ever larger sizes with time?  Skyscrapers.  Skyscraper height has increased dramatically over the last century.  For Godzilla to continue to plow through buildings in major metropolises, a more formidable size is needed.  Of course this size change can only be evolutionarily adaptive if it changes the fitness of Godzilla, i.e. in the simplest case the number of offspring passed to the next generation.  If Godzilla is able to topple buildings this might allow for greater acquisition of resources in this case food in the form of people. This would increase the lifespan of Godzilla allow for more reproduction or allow for greater amount of energy to be passed to the offspring increasing their rate of survival  Or perhaps toppling buildings is a sexual display that sexual partners cue on.  Sexual selection!

Kohler has created a solution with its new electromagnetically-activated touchless toilet. It allows you to wave your hand above the commode to achieve the perfect flush without you ever having to make contact with the porcelain, which means a wave of the hand will shift your business for you instead.
