"Chinese doctors have saved a man’s severed hand by grafting it to his ankle, it is reported. Xiao Wei lost his right hand in an accident at work but could not have it reattached to his arm right away. Instead, the hand was kept alive by stitching it to Mr Wei’s left ankle and “borrowing” a blood supply from arteries in the leg." According to the report, Mr Wei's doctors from the Changsha region say he will need to undergo several other operations but they are hopeful that he will regain full function of his hand.

Duffy London's MK1 Transforming Table is not merely a space-saving coffee table, but also an expansive dining room table. In two simple movements, the hidden legs and leaves that make up the coffee table pull out to become a 4.5' x 2.5' dining area. For small spaces, this may be the table we've all been wishing for, as it's really like buying two tables in one.
It is the Stealth-X from Snolo Sleds, the carbon fiber snow sled that glides and corners like a rally racer. Fold it up, strap it to your back and hit the backcountry. "The Stealth-X has a seating position that makes you feel like you are sitting in a race car, it has steering ability, and it has speed. Early test runs on an average gradient slope showed it was capable of in excess of 65 km/hr (approximately 40 miles an hour), but uniquely for a sled it can also maneuver and stop in much the same manner as a snowboard using your feet and your body positioning."
From Christopher Nolan, Interstellar is in theaters November 2014.

A mysterious rip in spacetime opens and it's up to whatever is left of NASA to explore and offer up hope for mankind."
