new continuous 3D printer does away with the layers completely, being able to print 25-100 times faster the same objects a normal printer does. A platform draws the object continuously out of a bath of liquid resin like in Terminator 2 :)  ►

The technology, called Continuous Liquid Interface Production (CLIP) manipulates light and oxygen to fuse objects in liquid media, creating the first 3D printing process that uses tunable photochemistry instead of the layer-by-layer approach that has defined the technology for decades.

It works by projecting beams of light through an oxygen-permeable window into a liquid resin.

Working in tandem, light and oxygen control the solidification of the resin, creating commercially viable objects that can have feature sizes below 20 microns, or less than one-quarter of the width of a piece of paper.

If you want more data, has the original research.

"People buy organic because they think it's better for the environment; it's not. It's safer; it's not. It tastes better; it doesn't. It's more nutritious; it isn't."

Need to print this methinks...
Twenty+ years of wrangling SQL and this is one of the best explanations of JOINs I've seen.  A classic case of a picture is worth a thousand words.

Math/physics in action!
Fifteen uncoupled simple pendulums of monotonically increasing lengths dance together to produce visual traveling waves, standing waves, beating, and (seemingly) random motion.

For more details see http://sciencedemonstrations.fas.harv...

The period of one complete cycle of the dance is 60 seconds. The length of the longest pendulum has been adjusted so that it executes 51 oscillations in this 60 second period. The length of each successive shorter pendulum is carefully adjusted so that it executes one additional oscillation in this period. Thus, the 15th pendulum (shortest) undergoes 65 oscillations.

A little girl donates some coins to a street musician and gets the best surprise in return. Well, that's certainly money well spent.

+Hile Cremers +Anne Lee new technique!!!
So this is what my problem is. I've been playing the game completely wrong.

“If a TD has a pint or two I don’t think that’s a problem for me and I don’t think it’s a problem for the citizens of the country either.”

Ireland, where best policies are decided over a few pints...

Gotta love the Irish... and not wonder too much why economy is in its current shape :)
