Lasersaur Lasersaur The Lasersaur is an open source laser cutter. We designed it to fill the need of makers, artist and scientist who wanted a safe and highly-capable machine. Unlike others it comes fully loaded with knowledge to run, maintain, and modify. Since its conception, Nortd Labs and the Lasersaur community has generated knowledge to develop a comprehensive system. How can you Contribute? Unlike software, hardware RD is costly even when living off of Ramen. Short on cash? $32 Beta Access: Support the project and get full access to design documents, community (mailing list), and software before the project goes fully open source. $(any) Project Support: Simply want to support the project? We Accept Bitcoin! Credits Mad props to,,, grbl,, and their giants' shoulders.

Edge Master Class 2009 THE CURRENT CATALOG OF LIFE By Ed Regis In their futuristic workshops, the masters of the Synthetic Genomics, Craig Venter and George Church, play out their visions of bacteria reprogrammed to turn coal into methane gas and other microbes programmed to create jet fuel 14. Synthetic genomics, the subject of the conference, is the process of replacing all or part of an organism's natural DNA with synthetic DNA designed by humans. The specter of "biohackers" creating new infectious agents made its obligatory appearance, but synthetic genomic researchers are, almost of necessity, optimists. Church and his Harvard lab team have already programmed bacteria to perform each of these functions separately, but they have not yet connected them all together into a complete and organized system. But tumor-killing microbes were only a small portion of the myriad wonders described by Church. Church is also founder and head of the Personal Genome Project, or PGP. [ Permalink ]

Mr. Tompkins Mr. Tompkins in Wonderland where c = 10 km/hr There are many pictures so it may take a few minutes to download this page. The hands of the big clock on the tower down the street were pointing almost to noon and the streets were nearly empty. A single cyclist was coming slowly down the street and, as he approached, Mr Tompkins' eyes opened wide with astonishment. Mr Tompkins did not notice that he gained much in speed, but, as the result of his effort, he flattened still more and went down the street looking exactly like a picture cut out of cardboard. Then, Mr Tompkins felt very proud because he could understand what was happening to the cyclist-- it was simply the contraction of moving bodies about which he had just learned. "Evidently nature's speed limit is lower here," he concluded, "that is why the bobby on the corner looks so lazy, he need not watch for speeders." [It has much more power than a bicycle, so the dilation is greater to observers.] "By Jove! “Speed limit?” “Well ! “Oh!

Generation FAB by Matthew Gardiner on Prezi Systems & Synthetic Biology The Boston Shuffler | Investors 411 The Carnivore, the Boston Shuffler, the Knife… are some of the names of the algorithms on Wall Street that make up 70% of the operating system of stocks formerly known as known as your pension fund, and portfolio. What Kevin Slavin is talking about is High Frequency Trading/Black Boxes that dominate The Street. In reality these mathematic algorithms are shaping far more than Wall Street, they’re shaping our world. Above Photo links to Kevin Slavin’s Presentation. Photo Credit James Duncan Davidson / TED The Huffington Post is running a series of the best 18 TED [Ideas Worth Spreading] seminars this year. His video is a must, if you’re a trader/investor who wants to know if/why you’re portfolio may melt up or down this year. The Ted series has been featured many times on Investors411, because TED presents outside the box, creative ideas that are shaping your life and terraforming this planet. So before today’s football game enjoy a TED presentation or two Stocks Tomorrow Barr
