Double O Bike Lights
Gear | Bike


Designer Paul Cocksedge has designed a set of cool bicycle lights called the Double O(funding on Kickstarter) which stay in place using magnets and incorporate rechargeable batteries, and bright LEDs. Push on the back Double O and snap on the front Double O and the magnets inside will securely hold them in place.
"Double O bike lights have magnets inside so putting them on and taking them off is hassle free. Fix the polycarbonate mounts onto the bike frame with the nut and bolt provided. Push on the back Double O and snap on the front Double O and the magnets inside will securely hold them in place.
Double O’s are extremely robust and hard wearing. Along with a polycarbonate shell and silicone backing, they also have neodymium-grade magnets inside to make them really strong. We have done extensive tests to ensure that the magnets are robust enough and the lights stay on."

8 hours of airliners departing from Los Angeles in one single photo

8 hours of airliners departing from Los Angeles in one single
Gear | Pic


Los Angeles architectural photographer Mike Kelley posted this awesome image of almost all the departures LAX during a period of eight hours last Sunday. Here is his explanation:
"This is (almost!) every departure and a few arrivals at LAX's south complex yesterday. I spent almost the whole day there and another eight or so hours in photoshop putting this all together. I took some artistic liberty with the angles of attack to make a more interesting photograph, but for the most part this is all very similar to how it would appear if you were to go and watch yourself. There are two runways and both were being used for takeoffs, so that explains the size differences and depth differences between the planes.
If you look to the right of the tower, I also tried to get some of the heavies arriving. Singapore, Air France, Malaysia, Air New Zealand and Emirates A380s and 772s

A 3D printed Thermoplastic skull
Gear | Tech


This is the 3-D printed thermoplastic skull recently transplanted on a 22-year old woman's head who has a condition that prevents her regular skull from ever stop growing thicker. So they cut the top off of that one and replaced it with a 3D-printed implant made of polyetherketoneketone(PEKK, a thermoplastic). Watch a video of the process, and a shot of the skull after transplant.
"The skull, made by an Australian firm, is actually fairly transparent. Lots of plastics can be transparent -- acrylics, polycarbonates, etc. -- but the stringent medical requirements, and also print requirements, place limits on the possible. While the transparency may be incidental, the picture above shows the clear advantage of such transparency: one can see the underlying brain and vasculature. Not only is this a nice feedback to see how things are going macroscopically, it also entices with potential to optically image activity in the brain like never before."
