Love the fact that Enterprise CMOs are leaving 9% of the budget for skunkworks projects. Anyway, the predictions read the way of Kotler, and long overdue. This is 40+ years in the making.

Elaine Roberts, Ph.D's curator insight, December 15, 11:45 AM

Not every student has global opportunities. . .yet. However, as educators implement technology and build networks to reach around the globe, students can have remarkable experiences. And it doesn't take much to connect students to an expert in the field. Skype and Google Hangouts have been offering that capability for a while. We need to encourage our teachers to be bold and explore the world with our kids.

Richard Platt's curator insight, December 13, 12:20 AM

They custom made it to precisely fit the shape of the rabbit's heart: First, while the rabbit was still alive, they scanned it and created a 3D model using computer aided tomography. They manufactured the model in a 3D printer, which they used as a mold to create the membrane. After that they took the heart out, applied the membrane, and kept it beating at a perfect pace.  -  According to University of Illinois' materials researcher John Rorgers, co-leader of the team who has developed this device, it's like an artificial pericardium, the natural membrane that covers the heart:

interactive plastic cards are a step between virtual cards and the current plastic cards. A step lower than the Coin product to some extent.I recall working with similar cards about 10 years ago which generated 3D secure PIN token in realtime for online payments use. Costs were too prohibitive for issuers to implement though. Wonder if these cards will face a similar fate.
