    3D Printing Stone AgeTools

    3D Printing Stone AgeTools
    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.

    Withings Activit  Smart Watch
    Withings Activite($390) at first glance, it looks like any other old analog watch. It has a clean white face, a leather band, and all the class and glamour of a night at the Oscars. But it’s much smarter than it looks. The Activité was designed in Paris and made in Switzerland, and comes with enough sensors to measure distance covered (either walking, running, or swimming), sleep quality, and calories burned throughout the day. As it has a traditional analog face, these stats need to be seen through the complementary Health Mate app from Withings. It communicates with iOS devices via Bluetooth LE, working in concert with a handy Withings Health Mate app that lets you create custom activity plans and track your progress towards your fitness goals. Oh, and you're free to take the Activité to the pool as well, as it's water resistant for up to 50 meters.
