the freeD

the freeD | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

The FreeD is a hand-held, digitally controlled, milling device that is guided and monitored by a computer while still preserving the craftsperson’s freedom to sculpt and carve. The computer will intervene only when the milling bit approaches the planned model. Its interaction is either by slowing down the spindle speed or by drawing back the shaft; the rest of the time it allows complete freedom, letting the user to manipulate and shape the work in any creative way.

'Pharmacy on a chip' gets closer-microchips being implanted under a patient's skin to control the release of drugs

'Pharmacy on a chip' gets closer-microchips being implanted under a patient's skin to control the release of drugs | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it
US scientists say they have taken a step towards microchips being implanted under a patient's skin to control the release of drugs.

The futuristic idea that microchips could be implanted under a patient's skin to control the release of drugs has taken another step forward.

US scientists have been testing just such a device on women with the bone-wasting disease osteoporosis.

The chip was inserted in their waist and activated by remote control.

A clinical trial, reported in Science Translational Medicine, showed the chip could administer the correct doses and that there were no side effects.

Benjamin Ross Hayden: encode_1

Benjamin Ross Hayden: encode_1 | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

If all the code does is give us a mirror of ourselves, translating our material world into configurable bits and bytes. If what we want from code is not only power, but also discourse and connection, then perhaps we should begin to ask ourselves about the codes we are in the habit of overlooking in our preoccupation with our own, whether digital or genomic. There are plenty of codes out there calling for our attention, and many are in plain sight or hearing. If access to digital code can open up the heart of a computer, would a deeper understanding of these other codes enable us to open our own codes—and our own hearts?

Any Sufficiently Advanced Civilization is Indistinguishable from Nature « NextNature.net

Any Sufficiently Advanced Civilization is Indistinguishable from Nature « NextNature.net | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

In Western cultures, nature is a cosmological, primal ordering force and a terrestrial condition that exists in the absence of human beings. Both meanings are freely implied in everyday conversation. We distinguish ourselves from the natural world by manipulating our environment through technology. In What Technology Wants, Kevin Kelly proposes that technology behaves as a form of meta-nature, which has greater potential for cultural change than the evolutionary powers of the organic world alone.

With the advent of ‘living technologies’ [2], which possess some of the properties of living systems but are not ‘truly’ alive, a new understanding of our relationship to the natural and designed world is imminent. This change in perspective is encapsulated in Koert Van Mensvoort’s term ‘next nature’, which implies thinking ‘ecologically’, rather than ‘mechanically’. The implications of next nature are profound, and will shape our appreciation of humanity and influence the world around us.

Everything is a Remix Part 4

Our system of law doesn't acknowledge the derivative nature of creativity. Instead, ideas are regarded as property, as unique and original lots with distinct boundaries. But ideas aren't so tidy. They're layered, they’re interwoven, they're tangled.

A RADICAL MEANS

A RADICAL MEANS | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

How can we harness nature to produce sustainable building materials? This stool is made by microbes cementing together loose mineral material into solid forms. Without the use of harmful additives or lots of energy, A Radical Means proposes a vision of materials and manufacturing technologies able to produce unique form, colour and pattern by sustainable means.
