Microsoft Research: Interactive HIV/AIDS Exhibits For the past 25 years, family and friends of those who have passed away from AIDS have contributed a 6’-by-3’ panel to the AIDS Memorial Quilt. It is the largest community art project in the world. To date, more than 48,000 panels and 94,000 names make up The Quilt. Marcus Thymark's Open-Source FilaMaker Shreds and Recycles Plastic for 3D Printing German engineer and inventor Marcus Thymark is developing a filament-producing machine that allows 3D printing enthusiasts to grind up and reprocess discarded printed objects and other scrap plastic for re-use. Called the FilaMaker, Thymark’s machine is based on a powerful hand-cranked shredder that can be made from steel or stainless steel. He is working on integrating the shredder with a melter and extruder, which will allow the user to recycle scrap plastic into new filament.

Timelines The story of vaccines did not begin with the first vaccine–Edward Jenner’s use of material from cowpox pustules to provide protection against smallpox. Rather, it begins with the long history of infectious disease in humans, and in particular, with early uses of smallpox material to provide immunity to that disease. Evidence exists that the Chinese employed smallpox inoculation (or variolation, as such use of smallpox material was called) as early as 1000 CE. It was practiced in Africa and Turkey as well, before it spread to Europe and the Americas. Edward Jenner’s innovations, begun with his successful 1796 use of cowpox material to create immunity to smallpox, quickly made the practice widespread.

83-Year-Old Inventor Designs Inexpensive Open-Source Filament Extruder to Cut the Cost of 3D Printing Hugh Lyman, an 83-year-old retiree from Enumclaw, Washington, won The Desktop Factory Competition with his design for a low-cost, open-source machine capable of turning resin pellets into inexpensive filament for 3D printing. The competition, sponsored by Inventables, Kauffman, and the Maker Education Initiative, required that the parts used to make the machine could cost no more than $250. Lyman first entered his proposal in August 2012, but was disqualified because the machine exceeded the budget of $250. After modifying the project, he resubmitted it under the name “The Lyman Filament Extruder II”.
