Design house Magisso is known for the best in 2009, with the launch of the cake shovel, which works a little like a gingerbread molds.Eight years of its existence the company has design-esineidensä in addition, the developed design concepts including international customers.Today, the turnover from 90% comes from international exports and cooperation processes.Based on Juhani Sirén and Anssi hurme in the background was a city book City, and they don't feel the design industry or international business activity very much.Has been good too, we don't know the design industry, because we have been able to create a new approach”, Magisson ceo Juhani Sirén said.Magisson entrepreneurs and investors met in the Slush after that in December.
Image still: Nick LariontsevSlime molds and fungi might not rank high on anyone s list of favorite organisms, but there is a compelling beauty in their growth patterns.As Gizmodo s Maddie Stone wrote last year: Slime mold is a broad term referring to a diverse and ancient group of organisms known for their slimy, vegetative secretions.Many slime molds are actually comprised of single celled organisms that spend most of their time separate, banding together to form a single, moving slime body when times are tough.They can solve mazes, alter their appearance depending on surrounding conditions, and they re surprisingly good at finding the most efficient path to food.By exploiting the latter, scientists have recreated a map of the United States in slime mold, as well as ancient Roman road networks between the 1st and 4th century AD.You can watch the original magnified footage of fungi and slime molds below, courtesy of photographer Nick Lariontsev.
New images supposedly showing molds of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus seem to confirm the rumors that only the Plus model with a 5.5-inch screen will have the dual-lens camera.The images were posted on the Chinese web forum Baidu and found by Italian tech site HDBlog.it and 9to5Mac.It looks like the regular 4.7-inch model will "only" have a single-lens camera.Schematics of the alleged iPhone 7 were also leaked on Baidu, and they contradict one of the more recent rumors that the iPhone 7 is meant to have Smart Connectors.The molds in the leaked images could be the very molds that will form the outer casing of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, but we have no way of confirming if they're real or not.Either way, it doesn't look like the iPhone 7 is going to be very exciting from a design or features point of view.Apart from a dual-lens camera on the Plus model, we expect to see redesigned antenna lines, and Apple might even take away the headphone jack, too.As always, the only way to know is to wait until Apple's Fall iPhone event in September.Read the original article on Tech Insider.Follow us on Facebook and Twitter.Copyright 2016.More from Tech Insider:Amazon customer service has a guy named Thor, and he s on a hilarious 'quest' to help youIndia just launched a mini space shuttle on top of a rocket and the photos are amazingWe needed a theoretical physicist to explain this mind-boggling moment in 'Game of Thrones'Bill and Melinda Gates' biggest accomplishment is 'changing expectations' about the worldNew leaked images of the iPhone 7 appear to confirm one of the biggest rumors AAPL NOW WATCH: Sorry Apple fans — the iPhone 7 is going to be boringLoading video...
Image Source: Concept by Handy AbovergleichThe barrage of iPhone 7 leaks and rumors continues with a new set of images from Asia that show not only schematics for the upcoming devices, but also metal molds that will reportedly be used in the phone s manufacturing process.The new images seem to further reinforce some of the rumors we ve read before; in particular, it looks like the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus Pro will be the only version of the upcoming lineup to pack a dual rear camera.HUGE LEAK: This is our first look at a real iPhone 7The images were discovered on Baidu by HDBlog.it and they apparently originate from one of Apple s manufacturing partners.The early production schedule might also help explain all the recent leaks.A slew of leaks in the last few days showed one questionable 4.7-inch iPhone 7 rear case, as well as a metal shell that was more in line with recent rumors.The iPhone 7 should be unveiled and released at some point in September, which means we re in for plenty more iPhone rumors in the meantime.
Apple was rumored to be ditching the headphone jack in the iPhone 7 in order to make iPhones thinner.But that doesn't seem to be the case if a new set of leaked schematics showing the iPhone 7 dimensions are legitimate.According to these schematics obtained by Czech tech site letemsvetemapplem.eu and unearthed by 9to5Mac, this year's iPhone 7, with its 4.7-inch display, will be 7.2mm thick.The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s are only 7.1mm thick.The site claims the source is from a Chinese Apple parts supplier, which 9to5Mac says has proven to be reliable in the past.The schematics for the iPhone 7 Plus seem to be identical to the current iPhone 6s Plus.It's such a small difference that most people may not even notice, but it does suggest that Apple's reasoning behind ditching the headphone jack has nothing to do with making the iPhone thinner.We could only speculate that Apple may be adding a bigger battery, or it has to make more room for the supposedly larger camera module.Apart from the change in thickness, the newly leaked schematics back up some previous rumors, including redesigned antenna stripes, no headphone jack, and a dual camera for the iPhone 7 Plus and not for the iPhone 7 .However, the leak does back up rumors that the 4.7-inch iPhone 7's camera will undergo some sort of change, as previously leaked schematics and photos show that it looks larger than the camera module on the iPhone 6 generation.And yes, it appears as if the camera bulge will remain in the iPhone 7 line, but as my colleague Rafi Letzter says, that's not necessarily a bad thing.The newly-leaked schematics also show the iPhone 7 Plus with a Smart Connector towards the bottom, which doesn't match with a recent rumor that claims to show the production molds that will apparently shape the iPhone 7's body.It's still totally unclear whether or not any of the iPhone 7 models will have a Smart Connector, but recently granted patents show that Apple has been toying with different ideas for interesting functionality for the feature.Either way, nothing is confirmed until Apple's iPhone event in September, where we expect the iPhone 7 will be announced.EXCLUSIVE FREE REPORT:25 Big Tech Predictions by BI Intelligence.That might be great news!14 innovative features in Volvo's latest electric SUVThis is the oldest tech still used by the US governmentArtificial meteor showers could make a fearsome problem in space much worseNeanderthals built something deep inside a cave that scientists can't yet explainNOW WATCH: 7 tricks buried in your iPhone that only power users know aboutLoading video...
The company is one of the most talked-about case manufacturers at the moment, with its unique designs and use of tempered glass and strong modding community support seeing some great-looking systems appear on forums and social media.Unlike many case companies, In Win manufacturers all the parts of its cases on-site, including plastic components.The molds are created using milled copper inserts that are also created on-site and can be fine-tuned using a number of large lathes and other tools.For example, the blue front panel section on the 303 is made from scratch using a thin blue coating on a piece of acrylic, while the port enclosures themselves are made on site too.Click to enlargeFinally, the case components are installed in a long manned assembly line that sees the front panel, fans, drives bays and any other loose components added to the chassis before it's packed up, with each worker assigned a specific task.A huge thanks to In Win for showing us around.
The last thing you want to deal with is wire snaking from your head and getting tangled up in the intricate movements a quick run, a downward dog, or some dumbbell curls.Also on that in-line remote is a button to skip tracks, adjust volume, and answer phone calls.For those who want to make more of a statement with their ear gear, Bose s alternate colors—yellow and electric blue—likely don t go far enough, especially when compared to other slick buds from JLab or Jaybird.Bose also includes three sizes of ear molds—not as customizable as the Jaybirds, but there s still a good chance that you ll find the right fit no matter how run-of-the-mill or weird your ears might be.Although they d certainly get the job done from an audio point of view, that 6-hour battery life kills any convenience of wearing these for long stretches.While not the most expensive headset out there at $150, not a great fit for people buying on a budget.
There s a huge fascination behind how things are made – simple toys like a kaleidoscope, for example, are more complicated than you think.A new video from Super Deluxe that gives us the behind the scene look at how sex dolls are made, however, is even creepier than the concept of sex dolls itself.The obviously NSFW video details how a manufacturer mixes the dyes to match human skin tones, fill the silicone into lady-shaped molds, and even give the dolls a manicure for realism s sake.But the scenes where the bodies are just hanging up to dry look straight out of a horror flick when you realize the murderer has butchering experience.Even the way they store and ship the dolls is creepy.Also this screenshot in general.
Fingerprint sensors, it turns out, are only as impregnable as the fingers which secure them.In what appears to the first case of law enforcement bypassing biometric security in an active investigation, police in Michigan recently used a 3D print of a murder victim s finger to unlock an iPhone.That only solved half the problem.Fingerprint sensors rely on the conductive properties of skin to work: the ridges of your finger complete a microscopic series of circuits within the sensor, producing a unique electrical pattern.The artificial fingers haven t left the lab, yet, and Jain said the technology is still being refined.In May, security firm Vkansee demonstrated a simple fingerprint sensor workaround by taking an impression of a fingerprint in play-dough and applying it to a scanner.
The industry may have found one in mass production.Because of its high cost and slow pace, 3D printing s use in manufacturing has been limited mostly to prototyping, making plastic molds for teeth alignment and creating tools.HP Inc. will introduce a $130,000 printer later this year, which it says can make parts at half the expense and at least 10 times faster than rival printers -- and likely use lower-cost materials.While HP s entry could be a competitive blow, it may also help expand the market for 3D mass production, where other printer companies have already turned their focus.Jabil Circuit Inc. plans to be an early adopter of HP s device, printing end plastic parts for aerospace, auto and industrial applications that it currently makes using processes such as injection molding, John Dulchinos, vice president of digital manufacturing at the electronics-manufacturing service provider, said in an interview.We have use cases in each of these segments, Dulchinos said.Production applications for 3D printing could eventually grab at least 5 percent of the worldwide manufacturing economy, and translate into $640 billion in annual sales, according to Wohlers Associates, which has tracked the 3D printing market for 28 years.It s one of our anchor businesses we ll divert money on, HP Chief Technology Officer Shane Wall said in an interview.
Bagpipes and other wind instruments produce beautiful music, but they can also be prime breeding grounds for molds and fungi.Players then regularly breathe in those creatures, and can develop inflamed lungs as a result—or even a fatal lung disease.That s the conclusion of an unusual case study just published in the journal Thorax by researchers at the University Hospital South Manchester in England.They ve dubbed it bagpipe lung, because that was this particular patient s instrument of choice, but the same risk applies to any wind instrument, the authors caution.We ve all experienced that annoying nagging cough that lingers on after we catch a cold or the flu.Now imagine coughing for seven years.
Last week we took a look at how Lamborghini is using forged composite carbon fiber in car production.But forged composites aren't the only game in town when it comes to cutting edge materials.In recent weeks, the company signed a partnership with PSA Group Peugeot and Citroën .Metal parts are stamped out by gigantic presses that are both horrifically expensive and energy intensive.Divergent 3D's founder and CEO, Kevin Czinger, found this out first hand when he co-founded an earlier company that built electric vehicles.Layers of aluminum alloy powder are built up to create the necessary parts or to build molds for non-metallic components.

In what comes across as something of a parody of the way many games and movies are teased before they re trailered these days, Remedy Entertainment has filled its teaser for a trailer with its creative director.Beyond seeing the man himself what was his name again?in various locations, all we really have to go on is some curious closing music.Remedy Entertainment is the company that gave us the first two Max Payne games, Alan Wake and most recently Quantum Break, so we know it s used to breaking molds.Guessing that the new game will do something similar is about all we can say about it, since the teaser trailer tells us absolutely nothing.It s a short, 20-second video in which the creative director at Remedy and inspiration for Max Payne s face , Sam Lake, repeatedly introduces himself in several short clips, as well as briefly flashing up his Twitter handle.
With the newly launched toy set for kids, Play-Doh Touch Shape to Life Studio, Hasbro has made a solid attempt at bringing the joy of Play-Doh to digital through an iOS app that brings kids creations to life.But the combination of physical play and digital is not a skill set that s easily mastered even by top kids brands — just ask Disney Infinity.And while Play-Doh itself holds up as the engaging and fun toy it s been for decades, the Play-Doh Touch app fails to amuse after only a few minutes.On paper, Play-Doh Touch sounds intriguing.The idea is that kids can use Play-Doh to create as always – using scissors, stamps and molds – then place their resulting creations on a white surface where they re scanned and ported into a digital world where they ll actually come to life.That means you can create a cute green dinosaur, for example, then see him begin to hop around on the screen.
The European aviation giant wanted a lighter, 3-D-printed version of a partition mounted to a curved cabin wall that supports fold-down seats for flight attendants.The efficient way simple slime molds spread to seek food in forests and other places inspired designers, who eventually created a complex lattice of more than 60,000 tiny metal bars using a structure based on mammal bones.It turned out it was a good way to solve the problem, even if you couldn t care less about biology, said David Benjamin, who led the Autodesk team.GE last month paid more than $1 billion for 75% stakes in Germany s Concept Laser GmbH and Arcam AB of Sweden, leaders in 3-D metal printing.There s a reason seashells are so tough, for such a brittle material—it all comes down to structure, said Christine Furstoss, vice president and technical director for manufacturing and materials technologies at GE.Designers long have found inspiration in nature—the Wright brothers figured out how to maneuver an airplane by observing birds, and Velcro is modeled on burrs—but translating the complexities of biology often wasn t feasible.
A new citizen-science initiative is cataloguing the weird microbes that live among us.When I unscrewed it and peered inside, I was confronted with a slimy, slightly clotted dark film covering the stainless-steel interior.is focussed on getting to know humanity s most intimate microbial neighbors—the invisible army of bacteria, fungi, mites, and molds that live on our skin, clothes, and household surfaces.Earlier this year, as part of that mission, Dunn and his colleagues launched the , sending five hundred sampling kits to volunteers across the United States and Europe.The sampling process took about five minutes: I rubbed a cotton swab over the showerhead s inner surfaces while trying not to gag, then used a few paper strips to test the chlorine, nitrate, iron content of my tap water, and its pH.Dunn and his collaborators hope to be able to tell me sometime in the next few months which microbes I eradicated.
If you plan on mixing up a big bowl of punch or a communal cocktail for a party, this trick will keep your concoction cool without diluting its flavor.When ice cools your beverage it also melts and dilutes the mixture.The smaller the chunks of ice, the faster they melt and dilute.So for something like a bowl of punch that you ll have sitting out all night, you want the ice to melt and dilute as little as possible.Otherwise you lose all the flavor.That s why Lisa Freedman at The Kitchn recommends you use larger pieces of ice.
Meet Patty Brennan, she has one of the most interesting jobs that anyone could possibly ever have because she s an evolutionary biologist who studies the genital structures of sharks, birds, snakes, and more.Basically, she finds out how animals bone by dissecting them, making silicon molds, creating 3D models, looking at them under microscope, and testing them.And it gets much more complicated than you d think because of spiky hemipenises, corkscrew spiral penises, reinforced vaginas, and so much other good stuff.It s pretty fascinating to see how nature works, especially since how so much is still unknown.
Chinese search giant Baidu has acquired Raven Tech, a Chinese startup focusing on artificial intelligence and next-generation operating systems, the companies announced today.No financial details of the deal were disclosed.Cheng Lu, Raven Tech s founder, will join Baidu to lead the company s smart home device business and will work with the Duer team on new product development.Founded in 2014, the Beijing-based company is engaged in AI technology that especially applied to smart home systems.The company s IM AI chatbot Flow is a voice-based search engine and operation system that supports services from third-party apps.The app features a minimalist black-white interface.With simple voice command, users have an all-in-one experience no matter they want to play music, find restaurants or plan a journey.Services from mainstream apps like Uber and Dianping are supported.In addition, all the information found in Flow can be shared with friends.In the rising smart home wave, the company s also going for hardware market with the launch of Raven H-1, a Lego-like smart home assistant that users could customize different molds for different purposes.The product finished its campaign on JD s crowdfunding site last year.The startup has previously received tens of millions of US dollars in investment from ZhenFund, Matrix Partners China, Y Combinator, DCM, and Magic Stone Alternative.
