Metamaterials create mechanisms from a single piece of plastic. A door latch and a pair of pliers are among the mechanisms created without screws, bolts or other fixings by researchers working with a new technology called metamaterials (+ movie).

Metamaterials create mechanisms from a single piece of plastic

The team at the Hasso Plattner Institute's Human Computer Interaction Lab design objects that move despite being 3D printed as one single part. To do this they use metamaterials – a type of engineered material defined by its internal structure rather than what substance it is made of. Metamaterials have properties not found in nature, as with the real-life "invisibility cloak".

The objects created can have controlled directional movement, which means they can perform set mechanical functions, like gripping something or latching a door. The Hasso Plattner Institute's research opens up new possibilities for 3D printing by cutting out the need for a printed mechanism to be assembled from multiple, sometimes fiddly pieces. The shearing makes the latch move inwards, unhooking it from the doorjamb.

In the case of Tamish and Rajiv, the twins share both the same face and the same body, with each of them controlling only one side. The boys’ father, Hakesh Mukerjee, seemed a bit overwhelmed by all the attention given to his family since the birth of the twins. The size of his head, which already caused many complications at the time of his birth, will without a doubt constitute a major problem. The Kitschiest Hotel in the World.

Jogos e treinamentos cerebrais. Wonderwheel Recordings. Argentian producer Pedro Canale aka Chancha Via Circuito returns from a three-year sojourn with his long awaited third album, Amansara. Originally coming out of Buenos Aires's famed digital cumbia scene, Chancha has notoriously broken way outside those boundaries to forge unprecedented mergers between Brazilian rhythms, Paraguayan harp, Andean mysticism and the solitude of Argentinian folklore - all processed through his own futuristic style of post-dubstep.

Chancha's sound is without question truly unique and instantly recognizable to the point he has become a key reference point for an entire crop of artists that have begun to carry his genes. Hailed by the Washington Post, the New York Times, Pitchfork, NPR and countless others, Chancha Via Circuito defies even the shrewdest of marketing geniuses.

By Olivia Fleming for MailOnline Published: 17:40 GMT, 1 September 2014 | Updated: 00:13 GMT, 3 September 2014 'We've been conditioned to think that good looking ginger men don't exist, but there are a lot out there,' said British photographer and natural red head, Thomas Knights. In his first solo exhibition, opening September 3 at New York's BOSI gallery, Mr Knights has captured 40 red headed American men to challenge long-held stereotypes, and prove that they can be leading-man material, too. 'Red headed actors are portrayed as undesirable, angry, and weak characters - or the bad guy,' said the 31-year-old photographer. 'They are never the heartthrob, the hero or the action star, and it has created this notion that all ginger men are ugly and weak.
