Dezeen » IN-EI by Issey Miyake for Artemide | shubush design & wellbeing | Scoop.it

 

"Japanese fashion designer Issey Miyake has created a range of LED lamps for Italian lighting company Artemide that unfold from flat 2D shapes into 3D shades.

 

Called IN-EI, each one is folded from a single piece of fabric that’s made of recycled plastic bottles. Fibres in the material make it self-supporting so there’s no need for a separate frame inside."

Can We Please Move Past Apple’s Silly, Faux-Real UIs? | shubush design & wellbeing | Scoop.it
In recent years, the aesthetic of UIs has followed a dominant ideology that attempts to replicate the physical world.

looks at Skeuomorphism

"Derived from the Greek words Skeuos, meaning vessel or tool, and morph, meaning shape, a skeuomorph is, according to the Oxford Dictionary, a “derivative object that retains ornamental design cues to a structure that was necessary in the original.” The term can apply to either a physical or digital creation. In other words, it means to replicate the form and material qualities of something that are no longer inherently necessary, all with the objective of making new designs “look comfortably old and familiar,”

Bacterial signaling systems as platforms for rational design of new generations of biosensors

Bacterial signaling systems as platforms for rational design of new generations of biosensors

by
Checa SK, Zurbriggen MD, Soncini FC.
"Bacterial signal-responsive regulatory circuits have been employed as platform to design and construct whole-cell bacterial biosensors for reporting toxicity. A new generation of biosensors with improved performance and a wide application range has emerged after the application of synthetic biology concepts to biosensor design. Site-directed mutagenesis, directed evolution and domain swapping were applied to upgrade signal detection or to create novel sensor modules. Rewiring of the genetic circuits allows improving the determinations and reduces the heterogeneity of the response between individual reporter cells. Moreover, the assembly of natural or engineered modules to biosensor platforms provides innovative outputs, expanding the range of application of these devises, from monitoring toxics and bioremediation to killing targeted cells."

[VIDEO] Putty heals broken bones in days

Scientists from the University of Georgia Regenerative Bioscience Center used adult stem cells to produce a protein involved in bone healing gel. The putty provides full load bearing capabilities. Once its implanted into the site of a fracture bone, it rapidly restore a patient to ambulatory function while healing. Fracture Putty has already been proven to work in animals, and It could be two or more years until human studies are done.
