» How To Create More Confidently - The Creative Mind | ZenStorming - Design Raining Innovation | Scoop.it

Creating may often include anxiety and other sorts of fear. We need to develop courage and learn how to deal with these feelings to be more fully creative.

 

One idea from Eric Maisel: “All day long we’re supposed to get things right: pay our bills, pick up our kids, and so on. It is very hard to move from this everyday mindset to a creative mindset where huge mistakes and messes are permitted and even welcomed."

Study: Squid skin protein could improve biomedical technologies

Study: Squid skin protein could improve biomedical technologies | ZenStorming - Design Raining Innovation | Scoop.it
The common pencil squid may hold the key to a new generation of medical technologies that could communicate more directly with the human body. Materials science researchers in California have discovered that reflectin, a protein in the tentacled creature’s skin, can conduct positive electrical charges, or protons, making it a promising material for building biologically inspired devices.

Steam from the sun

Steam from the sun | ZenStorming - Design Raining Innovation | Scoop.it
A new material structure developed at Massachusetts Institute of Technology generates steam by soaking up the sun. The structure—a layer of graphite flakes and an underlying carbon foam—is a porous, insulating material structure that floats on water. When sunlight hits the structure’s surface, it creates a hotspot in the graphite, drawing water up through the material’s pores, where it evaporates as steam.
