We love wearable technology, but not all of it is as durable as we like our clothing to be. Which is why researchers at the Institute of Textiles and Clothing at Hong Hong Polytechnic decided to create fabric circuit boards. So far under testing, the electronic fabric can handle washing, stretching and even bullet impacts without breaking down, which could mean a whole new future for wearable tech.

I know, I know, Halloween is over, but these awesome LEGO houses by Mike Doyle are too good to pass up! If you squint your eyes, you might think you’re looking at old architectural photos, but in reality, there is no wood, nails or glue involved. The spooky factor of the ominous abodes is overshadowed by our appreciation for the painstaking details that went into their immaculate construction, using only LEGO! Doyle’s ‘Victorian on Mud Heap,’ the third installment in his abandoned house series, measures a towering 5.5′ x 6′ x 3′, is comprised of 130,000 LEGO, and took over 600 hours to build.

Fabricating artificial bones is one of the most interesting byproducts of the 3D-printing revolution. In the latest development, Australian researchers developed a BioPen that deposits regenerative stem cells onto damaged bone and cartilage in a process similar to 3D printing. Scientists at the Australian Research Council Center of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES) at the University of Wollongong in New South Wales say their bone growth pen combines 3D-printing with stem cell research to regrow missing or diseased bone faster and more accurately.

Groundbreaking LightCatcher Dome Brings Natural Light into the Darkest Buildings

There are many ways to brighten up dark spaces without mechanical assistance, but few are as efficient as the groundbreaking LightCatcher from EcoNation. The LightCatcher is a polycarbonate light dome with an integrated mirror tracking system that searches for the brightest source of available light and directs it into a building. The system is more efficient than standard skylights, so a smaller opening can be used – a 185.35 square ft opening in a roof brings in 646-1,202 square ft of natural light without using a lick of energy. Skylights also expose buildings to wide temperature fluctuations during the winter and summer months, while the LightCatcher does not. Designed by Maarten Michielssens in collaboration with the University of Ghent, this energy-saving technology earned EcoNation a nomination as one of the top small to medium-sized enterprises (SME) eligible for a Zayed Future Energy Prize (ZFEP) award.
