TERRA Mier 1001 Pallets STUCK An electrical field, when applied radially to a wound, starts and accelerates healing. We figured that a great way to apply this technology is to help diabetic patients speed up the closure of their chronically unhealing sores (which would otherwise lead to limb amputation). HealFast brings this technology to people in the compact form of a bandage that accelerates wound-healing. The experience of using a bandage is not just about its medical effects. It starts the moment you see it and handle its packaging, all the way till you peel it off for disposal. To encourage compliance to daily wound care, Healfast is designed to look positive, comforting and friendly, and to be easy and intuitive, even for one-handed use - especially for the less dexterous, arthritic fingers often associated with diabetes.

James Bridle – Waving at the Machines James Bridle’s closing keynote from Web Directions South 2011 was a a terrific end to an amazing couple of days, but don’t despair if you weren’t there. You can watch a full length video, or even read a transcript with the bonus of all the links James refers to. And if you want to be there next time around, make sure you are one of the first to hear about Web Directions South 2013! Transcript Thank you for having me. It starts with this. They inhabit a very bizarre world. Sometimes you can see them looking back out at you, looking across this increasingly fuzzy border, this threshold. But mostly they stand and they look out. So what I’m going to talk today, obliquely, about is a project that I’ve been sort of accidentally engaged in for the last six months or so, to which I gave the name “The New Aesthetic,” which is a rubbish name but it seems to have taken hold. I started noticing things like this in the world. And as I say, it’s everywhere. And more and more we see things like this.

Claire L. Evans: Greetings from the Children of Planet Earth In 1977, NASA sent a pair of unmanned probes named Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 into space. Among the infrared spectrometers and radio receivers included on each probe were identical copies of the same non-scientific object: the Voyager Golden Record. Sheathed in a protective aluminum jacket, the Record is a 12-inch gold-plated copper disk containing sounds and images chosen to portray the diversity of life on Earth: bird calls, whale songs, the sounds of surf, wind, and thunder, music from human cultures, and some 55 greetings in a range of languages, alive and dead. Like lonely time capsules, the records, aboard their still-functioning hosts, have long since left our solar system. The official Voyager 2 Twitter reports that the probe is currently at 13 hrs 38 mins 08 secs of light-travel time from Earth, which makes it the farthest man-made object from Earth. And neither, of course, are we. As a species, the messages we've sent into space are piecemeal. We're warring, inconsistent. Dr.

The Curious Brain What a wonderful Festival it has been! It was better and even more impressive than the one last year. Basically it was huge. So many presentation to see, so many people to connect. At one point you had to sacrifice which presentation to see over another one. I met so many awesome people B. During day one in my view, the show stole David Shing, he delivered tones of new digital insights . Then, I also loved the insights that Steve King CEO of Zenith revealed that I have already shared with you. Also very inspiring was the presentation of Peter Espersen from Lego that he spoke about Building Communities. Day 2 was even more impressive! I also enjoyed the presentation from Jon Matonis which I have shared below and also the one Steve Hasker did from Nielsen (I wish I could get my hands on that one to share with you guys. It was an amazing festival although in my view it should be a day longer. During the night everybody was dressed up for the awards.
