Generate gears and download in SVG format for CNC or 3D printing.
Gear Generator is a tool for creating involute spur gears and download them in SVG format. In addition it let you compose full gear layouts with connetcted gears to design multiple gears system with control of the input/output ratio and rotation speed. Gears can be animated with various speed to demonstrate working mechanism

During starvation, how long can the body live on body fat alone?  Between 2 and 8 weeks, depending on the amount of body fat available.
Under one medically-supervised experiment in 1965, a severely obese man survived on nothing but yeast, vitamin supplements and his own body fat for over a year.  He lost 125kg in weight.
Our digestive system converts the food we eat into energy which our body uses to keep itself going. The surplus or extra energy which...

The preview looks pretty impressive, but it's pre-order only, so to be taken with a pinch of salt I guess.

Props to +MindKits for effectively giving me an electronic part for free after discovering that it didn't quite match the photo on their website. That's the kind of customer service that engenders loyalty in customers - other NZ businesses take note!

It took me a good few seconds to realise that this was CGI and not some bizarre outdoor art installation.

Nice documentary on the evolution of video game graphics since the 1970s.

Autumn and Spring seem to provide the most photographic opportunities on my morning walk to work.

Interesting.
 
“IT’S like coffee times ten,” raves one enthusiast. “I use it a couple of times a week and problems solve themselves. At the end of the day, I haven’t wasted hours on frivolous websites. At the end of the week, my apartment is clean.” This marvel of productivity is not a new energy drink or an experimental wonder drug but a simple electrical device that he built at home for less than $10. Whenever this physicist feels like an extra burst of motivation, he places electrodes on his skull and sends a jolt of electricity into his brain.
The currents, which are typically applied for ten to 20 minutes, are hundreds of times smaller than the seizure-inducing shocks used in electroconvulsive therapy. Plans to make such transcranial direction current stimulation (tDCS) machines are freely available online and their components can be bought at hobbyist stores. Kits cater to those lacking soldering skills, and now companies are emerging offering nicely designed and packaged brain zappers for mainstream consumers.

Not everyone using tDCS is seeking to become more efficient in their daily life. Some hope to enhance their concentration for study or video gaming; others want to boost their memory, speed up learning or induce meditative calm. Yet more are trying to self-medicate for conditions such as depression, chronic pain and motor, sensory or neurological disorders. The benefits might sound implausible, but there is some science to support them. The idea goes back a long way. Scribonius Largus, a first-century Roman physician, prescribed the shock of an electric ray for headaches, and in the 19th century electrical pioneers such as Luigi Galvani and Alessandro Volta toyed with crude bioelectric experiments. It was not until the 1960s, however, that the first rigorous studies of electrical brain stimulation took place.

This is a nano-injector (actually a lance), a tiny machine used to inject DNA into cells by way of electrical charge:

"...[The lance] is positively electrically charged, and therefore has negatively charged DNA stick to it.
When the lance has penetrated the membrane, the charge on the lance is reversed, and the negatively charged DNA is therefore repulsed from the now negatively charged lance into the cytoplasm."
