27 Ways to Inspire Students to Innovate

27 Ways to Inspire Students to Innovate | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it
Educator Mia MacMeekin made this infographic about ways to inspire students to think more deeply about how innovation applies to them. It's a helpful way to begin a conversation about what it means to innovate, a word that sometimes seems to belong in the adult domain of business and is estranged from how students think about living their lives.

Augmentation in the Bedroom: Biohacking and the Inevitability of Cyborg Sex -

Augmentation in the Bedroom: Biohacking and the Inevitability of Cyborg Sex - | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it
Have you ever wanted to upgrade your body? Make improvements to all those physical limitations? Build a better version of yourself?

How about augmenting your sex life?

Biohacking is a radical new scientific field that is as groundbreaking as it is notorious. Approaching the human body with what is described as a hacker ethic, it encompasses a wide variety of different practices, ranging from cybernetic augmentation to gene sequencing and biological manipulation.

Referring to themselves as Grinders, this community of fringe innovators aims to become the world’s first cyborgs, one implant at a time. They advocate an open-source upgrade culture, operating within a strange intersection of body modification, hardware fetishism, and home surgery.

And some of the advances they’re starting to make are truly incredible.

Basement enthusiasts are eagerly embracing the trend of magnetic implants. Eventually, we could all be seeing with expanded sensory devices, or streaming first-person POV footage straight to our computers.

We might even be having cyborg sex.

L'Oreal to start 3D-printing skin - BBC News

L'Oreal to start 3D-printing skin - BBC News | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it
French cosmetics firm L'Oreal is teaming up with bio-engineering start-up Organovo to 3D-print human skin.

It said the printed skin would be used in product tests.

Organovo has already made headlines with claims that it can 3D-print a human liver but this is its first tie-up with the cosmetics industry.

Experts said the science might be legitimate but questioned why a beauty firm would want to print skin.

L'Oreal currently grows skin samples from tissues donated by plastic surgery patients. It produces more than 100,000, 0.5 sq cm skin samples per year and grows nine varieties across all ages and ethnicities.

Its statement explaining the advantage of printing skin, offered little detail: "Our partnership will not only bring about new advanced in vitro methods for evaluating product safety and performance, but the potential for where this new field of technology and research can take us is boundless."

Neurons Constantly Rewrite Their DNA | Neuroscience News | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it
Johns Hopkins scientists have discovered that neurons are risk takers: They use minor “DNA surgeries” to toggle their activity levels all day, every day. Since these activity levels are important in learning, memory and brain disorders, the researchers think their finding will shed light on a range of important questions. A summary of the study will be published online in the journal Nature Neuroscience on April 27.
