    How do you make a working human heart? Scientists can turn stem cells into beating heart cells, but getting them to organize into a 3D heart requires a scaffold.
    At the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Harald Ott and his team are reusing the scaffold that nature provides. They're stripping away all the living cells from dead hearts, before filling in the leftover matrix with healthy new cells.
    Madeleine is a Smell Camera That Captures

    Designer Amy Radcliffe has developed an odor-capturing "camera" based on technology developed for the perfume industry. Her device is called Madeleine. "The Madeleine works in much the same way as a 35mm camera," Radcliffe writes. "Just as the camera records the light information of a visual in order to create a replica The Madeleine records the molecular information of a smell."
    Here’s how it works: the source of the scent or odor is placed inside the glass dome that’s connected to the main part of the Madeleine. A pump pulls the scent molecules out and captures them in a resin trap. That trap can then be sent to a lab for analysis and to be re-created, like a perfume component.
    Amy calls this concept as “scent-ography” and envisions this as an alternative way of recording memories, saying: “From manipulating our emotional well-being through prescribed nostalgia, to the functional use of conditioned scent memory, our olfactory sense could take on a much more conscious role in the way we consume and record the world.”
