Certains disent que l'expérience est le meilleur enseignement, et pour Hugh Herr, c'est certainement le cas. Son expérience en matière de handicap et son besoin subséquent de prothèses l'ont contraint à développer ce qui pourrait être le modèle bionique le plus avancé au monde. Aujourd'hui, le chercheur et expert bionique est le co-directeur du Center…

NASA Testing A Small Nuclear Reactor To Power Human Colonies On Mars | Culture & Science 4.0 | Scoop.it
The researchers at NASA, Los Alamos National Laboratory, and the Department of Energy, have announced that they've successfully conducted the first tests of a small nuclear power reactor named Kilopower. NASA describes Kilopower as a low cost, compact, nuclear fission reactor that can be used for scalable applications from 1kW to 10kW.

An Introduction to Design and Culture

An Introduction to Design and Culture | Culture & Science 4.0 | Scoop.it
This third edition of An Introduction to Design and Culture has been revised and updated throughout to include issues of globalization, sustainability and digital/interactive design.New for this edition is a chapter which covers key changes in design culture. Design culture has changed dramatically in the 21st century, the designer-hero is now much less in evidence and design has become much more interdisciplinary. Drawing on a wealth of mass-produced artefacts, images and environments including sewing machines, cars, televisions, clothes, electronic and branded goods and exhibitions, author Penny Sparke shows how design has helped to shape and reflect our social and cultural development. This introduction to the development of modern (and postmodern) design is ideal for undergraduate students.

The world's most powerful acoustic tractor beam could pave the way for levitating humans

The world's most powerful acoustic tractor beam could pave the way for levitating humans | Culture & Science 4.0 | Scoop.it
Acoustic tractor beams use the power of sound to hold particles in mid-air, and unlike magnetic levitation, they can grab most solids or liquids. For the first time University of Bristol engineers have shown it is possible to stably trap objects larger than the wavelength of sound in an acoustic tractor beam. This discovery opens the door to the manipulation of drug capsules or micro-surgical implements within the body. Container-less transportation of delicate larger samples is now also a possibility and could lead to levitating humans.

The draft genome of tropical fruit durian (Durio zibethinus) : Nature Genetics : Nature Research

The draft genome of tropical fruit durian (Durio zibethinus) : Nature Genetics : Nature Research | Culture & Science 4.0 | Scoop.it

Durian (Durio zibethinus) is a Southeast Asian tropical plant known for its hefty, spine-covered fruit and sulfury and onion-like odor. Here we present a draft genome assembly of D. zibethinus, representing the third plant genus in the Malvales order and first in the Helicteroideae subfamily to be sequenced. Single-molecule sequencing and chromosome contact maps enabled assembly of the highly heterozygous durian genome at chromosome-scale resolution. Transcriptomic analysis showed upregulation of sulfur-, ethylene-, and lipid-related pathways in durian fruits. We observed paleopolyploidization events shared by durian and cotton and durian-specific gene expansions in MGL (methionine γ-lyase), associated with production of volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs). MGL and the ethylene-related gene ACS (aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylic acid synthase) were upregulated in fruits concomitantly with their downstream metabolites (VSCs and ethylene), suggesting a potential association between ethylene biosynthesis and methionine regeneration via the Yang cycle. The durian genome provides a resource for tropical fruit biology and agronomy.

The Culture of Design

The Culture of Design | Culture & Science 4.0 | Scoop.it
Praise for the first edition: `Julier provides an important contemporary account of how design disciplines act and interact in the world.... an important resource for the student of design... perfection as a cultural studies text' - European Journal of Cultural Studies Aimed at students of design studies, design history, cultural studies and sociology, The Culture of Design, offers a unique overview of design practice in contemporary culture and society. Drawing on a range of theoretical perspectives, Julier nevertheless foregrounds the everyday business and professional context in which designers work. The second edition of The Culture of Design, has been thoroughly revised and updated, and contains new case studies, including one on the iPod. In addition, the book now has a new introductory chapter that outlines academic approaches to 'design culture' and an extended final chapter which looks at the links between design and management studies and how the creative industries function in the context of urban regeneration and social participation.
