This is awesome!
 
A Lego-Friendly Prosthetic Arm Lets Kids Build Their Own Attachments

A new mindset from what current prosthetics are. Missing a limb shouldn't be a disability for a kid when you have the opportunity to explore and augment their potential by creating, playing and learning.

The needs of a kid in disability are not always related to physical activity but often alternatively the social and psychological aspect; sometimes a functional element is everything they need, but some other times it might be a spaceship, or a doll house, or a telescope, or a video game controller, or a swim fin...

What if kids could use their imagination to create their own prosthetics, their own tools according to their own needs? Learning. Creating. Being kids.

Said it all along...
Oorah!!
 
“With 300 Marines, you  could probably take over Iraq if you wanted to and get rid of ISIS completely. Make no mistake about it, Marines are war fighters. I mean they are really good at what they do. The only time they are not good at what they do is when someone puts the shackles on them.” - US Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrel ret. (Lone Survivor)
During a recent interview with Fox and Friends, retired Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell, on whose life the movie Lone Survivor was based, spoke with hosts Brian Kilmeade and Elizabeth Hasselbeck about ISIS closing in on al Baghdadi, which is located 5 miles from Al Asad Air Base which houses 300 Marines.Recognizing that our military has…

3D paper dragons

*How to make 3D paper dragon"

This little dragon is only made out of paper. Just simply print, cut and stick it together, and stand it on a table and start fooling yourself.

How does it work?

If we move around viewing a solid object, our brain knows how the object we are looking at should behave. However the dragon gives us the wrong clues, because we mis-interpret what its shape is. We assume that the nose of dragon is pointing towards us, but in fact the dragon’s head is actually concave.

Nice piece of low poly rendering by Firebeasty "Old Stars, New Horizons" #b3d

Here's my latest work combining a papercraft style I've been working with lately with inspiration from the New Horizons space probe. 389154 Thanks for your attention! K

Imagine this as a building material
 
The Self-Folding Origami Robot.

This miniature origami robot can walk, climb, dig, carry, swim and dissolve into nothing, and it's only the first step. Just wait for the nanobots that will clear clogged arteries.

So what can we do with super tiny self-folding robots? Researchers hope to develop even smaller autonomous robots with additional sensors that can dissolve in water. Such tiny devices could have a variety of medical uses when introduced inside of a human body, maybe zapping cancer cells or cleaning clogged arteries.

It sounds a bit scary having nanobots fixing your body, hopefully they could never take over your body or go haywire like in some sci-fi movie. LOL!

Check out the video below to see this miniature origami robot in action...

I already knew how much of the mass of a launch vehicle is taken up by reaction mass (Thanks, Tsiolkovsky), but it surprised me to see how little of the cost wedge it takes up. The allure of reusable launch vehicles is much more clear to me now. I mean, I already knew that there would be massive savings, but I always figured that there was much more of the cost that you really couldn't do anything about because you can't really reuse reaction mass. Turns out I was wrong in a good way. I really like the way that Elon Musk (I think) explained it when he said that the current model would be like building a new jumbo jet every time an airline made a flight, and dumping it in the ocean after each flight.

In many rocket engines, the blasted turbines have to be hand made one at a time. Which really drives up the cost of the engine.
Of course Elon Musk is experimenting with using 3D printing to make turbines.
