Graphene Microbots used to Scrub Lead from Water
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/04/20/graphene-microbots-used-to-scrub-lead-from-water/

With lead contamination in water supply lines across this nation – and the world – some researchers are examining the possibility of using magnet-steered graphene-based microbots to scrub lead from polluted water. Wow!

In the space of a single hour, the study showed, self-propelled microbots could remove up to 95 percent of lead from water.

Lead is commonly found in wastewater from mines or factories that make batteries and electronic devices, and can pose a serious risk to public health, as the water crisis in Flint, Michigan demonstrates. Industrial activities can also contaminate water with arsenic, mercury and other metals.

HOW-TO: Liven up your backyard with a DIY Zipline
You could buy a dinky kit with a short zip line for kids, but why not make your own industrial-strength zip line that can support almost anything?

An unexpected discovery has led to a zinc-manganese oxide rechargeable battery that’s as inexpensive as conventional car batteries, but has a much higher energy density.

Turn a 3D Pen Into A 3D Printer #3DThursday #3DPrinting 
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/04/21/turn-a-3d-pen-into-a-3d-printer-3dthursday-3dprinting/

The student has become the teacher. A 3D pen turns into a 3D printer, Via Fabbaloo

TA 3D pen? You remember, those handheld devices that include an extruder and hot end, and hopefully some safety features to keep you from burning your fingers and home. You gently move them around in 3D space to “print” 3D things. My opinion is that these devices are not really 3D printers by any definition. They are a hand tool used manually to make stuff, like a hammer or saw.
