    Hubble Observes OneofaKind Star Nicknamed
    News  
    This new image was captured by Hubble. NASA explains:
    "Nasty One was identified as a Wolf-Rayet star, a rapidly evolving star that is much more massive than our sun. The star loses its hydrogen-filled outer layers quickly, exposing its super-hot and extremely bright helium-burning core... But Nasty One doesn’t look like a typical Wolf-Rayet star. The astronomers using Hubble had expected to see twin lobes of gas flowing from opposite sides of the star, perhaps similar to those emanating from the massive star Eta Carinae, which is a Wolf-Rayet candidate. Instead, Hubble revealed a pancake-shaped disk of gas encircling the star. The vast disk is nearly 2 trillion miles wide."
    MIITO the sustainable alternative to the electric


    Do you use an electric kettle to make tea?  This cool new Kickstarter project that saves energy and looks sleek in a kitchen. It’s called Miito, and it describes itself as “the sustainable alternative to the electric kettle.” It’s already raised over $340,000—more than double its goal. You can also use it to warm up bowls of soup, glasses of milk, mugs of hot chocolate, whatever. Here’s how it works: Put your filled tea cup on the small induction patch on the “kettle,” which is entirely cool to the touch. Slip in an induction rod. The induction patch heats the rod, boiling the liquid from within.

    BrainControlled Bionic Legs
    Tech  


    The Proprio Foot by Össur is a brain-controlled bionic foot that matches natural foot motion. The device is controlled by special sensors implanted in the owner’s leg muscle. When a signal from the brain reaches the sensors, they relay the signal to the Proprio Foot to make the appropriate action.
    "But the biggest benefit he's seen is a surprising one. “You have to learn how to use those muscles again,” says Olafsson. “How to tighten them up, in front and back. And that's the main thing. Those muscles start getting bigger, so you get better at walking. I have more stamina. My gait is better. I don't limp as much.” By forcing the wearer to actively use muscles that were previously ignored, sensor-connected limbs could halt or reverse their deterioration. It's a reminder that, despite the urge among the able-bodied to obsess over cybernetic enhancements, bionic limbs are chiefly medical devices for now, designed to restore function. That a brain-controlled bionic leg would also promote muscle growth is stranger, and more exciting, than all of the superpowered cyborgs that science fiction has to offer. "
