A bioengineer and geneticist at Harvard’s Wyss Institute have successfully stored 5.5 petabits of data — around 700 terabytes — in a single gram of DNA, smashing the previous DNA data density record by a thousand times.
This! just this! I can’t wait for this to be available and the bio hacks that can come from it.

Capture yourself in 3D Space. App scans surfaces in 3 dimensional space using Kinect, and stores the 3d mesh into specified file format. The file can then be viewed or imported to other 3D softwares like Blender and Meshlabs to be used for other applications like games and movie making.

An FBI guidance manual says the law enforcement agency is able to access U.S. residents’ email, Facebook and Twitter messages, and private documents, without breaching the Fourth Amendment.
This disturbs me greatly
The Australian Museum in partnership with the Atlas of Living Australia (www.ala.org.au) has created a crowdsourcing website that allows volunteers to assist the museum in transcribing its collections, anywhere anytime.
· The Biodiversity Volunteer Portal (http://volunteer.ala.org.au/) is where volunteers can transcribe specimen labels, field notes, and expedition diaries.
· Volunteers on the site say they feel that it is a rewarding experience knowing that the information they capture becomes accessible to scientists, conservation agencies and government departments across the country who can then work together to better understand, manage and conserve our precious biodiversity.
We are seeking…
… dedicated detail oriented people who are willing to join the community of volunteers who are helping with the daunting task of digitising the Museum’s large natural history collections.

Too much free time will make people do the weirdest things. I’ve always had a soft spot for obsolete computers, especially when they had once cost a small fortune and were the absolute top-of-the-line in their hey-day but are now hopelessly out-dated. It seems unfair that after only a short time of hard work the reward for their loyalty is to bring them to the junkyard.
Flexible 3D printed Fashion
“The architectural structure aims to superimpose multiple layers of thin woven lines which animate the body in an organic way. Exploiting computational boundaries in combination with emergent technology selective laser sintering, of a new flexible material, lead to enticing and enigmatic effects within fashion design. New possibilities arise such as eliminating seams and cuts where they are usually placed in couture.”
