The world is inundated with perfection from machines. But this artist does exactly the opposite and her handmade creations are just perfectly stunning.
Ohio-based artist Connie Bloom makes threadwork her artistic voice in her handmade quilts that utilize "drawing with thread."

Lawsuits, that's the reason proprietary objects are not open sourced, esp. if it relates to safety.

My example: I had a Keurig coffee machine that started spewing hot water before the k-cup. I took the unit apart and determined the connection from supply hot water tube to the adapter had the plastic adapter cracked. It was a simple fix if I had the exact replacement part. So I call the company for the part... here's the kicker ...they didn't want to give me the replacement part! I insisted I needed this part and wanted to pay for it...no, you can't have this part.

What they did instead is give me a complete replacement of the coffee machine as long as I promised the mail back the broken unit's k-cup piercing part. So, I get the new machine and return the part as requested...for _free.

The old unit still sits in the garage. It's for future parts...except for the one I can't get¿

People 'hack' car computers with modules/chips for better performace/economy usually by purchasing an aftermarket unit. But imagine other more safety sensitive 'hacking' being done...

Heck, you can't 'hack' a sawed off shotgun legally. Let's start there first, and see where this goes. Maybe even have open source ammunition too, no?

Check out this amazing Star Wars drone inspired by the Incom T-70 X-Wing from the upcoming Star Wars Force Awakens movie. The force is definitely with the master drone maker Olivier C! #ForceFriday
