Diamond coating to improve implants

Research at RMIT University has found that, diamond, as it is made from carbon, improves the biocompatibility of 3D printed titanium implants. Not only could a diamond coating lead to better biocompatibility for 3D-printed implants but it could also improve their wear and resistance. https://3dprintingindustry.com/news/rmit-3d-printed-implant-study-proves-bodies-thrive-off-diamonds-130360/

An entirely new category of shoes inspired by natural materials, and an ongoing mantra to create better things in a better way.

A native of New Zealand, Tim Brown was always well versed in the magical qualities of merino wool. Inherently curious, he began asking himself why such a remarkable, sustainable resource was virtually absent in the footwear industry. And with that spirit of wonder, the Allbirds journey began. After years of researching and tinkering, Tim teamed up with Joey Zwillinger, an engineer and renewables expert. Together, they crafted a revolutionary wool fabric made specifically for footwear. MADE FROM NATURE -The footwear industry often overlooks Mother Nature’s materials in favor of cheaper, synthetic alternatives. We think it’s time to change that. au.allbirds.com

Solar panels that generate power from raindrops

Solar panels are designed to convert sunlight into electricity. But when it’s cloudy or rainy, they’re useless. There are batteries, like the Tesla Powerwall, designed to store electricity for those cloudy days. But the technology isn’t effective or cheap enough to make using solar power worth it in regions that don’t receive a lot of sunlight. A group of researchers from Soochow University in China has come up with a promising solution to that problem: they’ve developed solar panels that can generate power from raindrops. www.inkl.com/newsletters/morning-edition/news/researchers-figured-out-how-to-generate-power-from-falling-raindrops-which-could-solve-the-biggest-problem-with-solar-energy?

Wine labels that come alive with AR!

When you have downloaded the “Living Wine Labels” app you can view The Walking Dead wine label through your smartphone to watch it come to life with augmented reality. The Blood Red Blend label has an image of Sheriff Rick Grimes staring down the undead. When the app is launched and pointed at the label, you see Sheriff Rick fight off the ‘walkers’. The Cabernet Sauvignon label features a horde of zombies, and they break out of the label onto your phone screen. When you point the app at both labels through the app, when the bottles are side by side, the characters fight each other. Designed for clever dinner party entertainment! www.skybound.com/the-walking-dead/news-events/news-eventsnew-walking-dead-wines-will-feature-ar-labels/

High heels becoming unfashionable

Women are trading in their high-heeled stiletto shoes for sneakers and ballet flats. Workplaces are becoming more casual, and it’s increasingly acceptable to wear sneakers to dinner. More people are working from home, and those who do go into the office are often walking to work. Fitness trackers like the Fitbit have also made people more aware of how much they are — or should be — moving. For people counting their steps, it makes sense to wear comfortable footwear and clothing. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/business/wp/2018/03/07/high-heels-are-the-worst-and-women-are-finally-ditching-them/?

A drug that can mimic the benefits of exercise

Not everyone can exercise. People with muscle-wasting diseases and movement disorders, the frail, the very obese and post-surgical patients are among those who face a significant challenge when it comes to exercise. This can be frustrating, considering the well-established benefits of exercise. A pill may be on the way to stimulate the body into producing some of the same effects as exercise -a drug that can help us game the system that is naturally activated during exercise.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/an-exercise-pill-may-be-in-the-future-for-those-incapable-of-working-out/2018/03/02/e8af9370-1bdb-11e8-ae5a-16e60e4605f3_story.html?
