THIS Is Why A Rolex Is So Expensive…


rolex-submariner-116613ln-02

If you’ve ever wondered why a Rolex was so expensive you may want to watch this demonstration of a Rolex Submariner being disassembled, showing the intricacies involved in the time piece in exquisite detail.  The demonstration is of course performed by a professional watchmaker, who meticulously picks apart the watch with great skill.  Although back in the 50’s, they weren’t as expensive.

“First revealed to the public in 1953, the Rolex Submariner was a diving watch for everyone. Appealing to both professional and hobby divers, the Submariner set the standard for the category, its affordability and practicality unmatched. Rolex also developed non-chronometer versions of the Submariner that were even more affordable, costing roughly two weeks’ pay at the time.”

Over the past several months, hoverboards have inexplicably become a regular topic of conversation. It started with a Back to the Future-inspired prank from Tony Hawk early last year. Before long, a Kickstarter for a real hoverboard started making the rounds and now, over a year after the original prank video, Lexus is building its own ride-able hoverboard.

SLIDE is the fourth project in the Lexus ‘Amazing in Motion’ series, which has included drones and robots in the past. According to Lexus’ website, the hoverboard “uses magnetic levitation to achieve amazing frictionless movement. Liquid nitrogen cooled superconductors and permanent magnets combine to allow Lexus to create the impossible.”

Sadly, we don’t get to see anyone actually ride the hoverboard in the debut video, but Lexus promises we’ll see more updates from the project in the coming weeks. Watch the video below:

Klemens Torggler has redesigned the humble entryway into an origami-style artwork called the Evolution Door , which opens by folding the 4-panel creation through a triangular motion.

Joseph Begley is an english designer with a great sense of humor. His latest creation cleverly entitled Slap It shows it perfectly. Slap It is a lamps made out of silicone, that really looks like a butt, which turns on and off when you slap it. If you are a little more gentle, you can also pinch it, it works just fine too.

Jim Lepage had been reading his bible on and off for most of his life… the problem was, he didn’t always want to read it. Looking for motivation to encourage his spiritual practice, he decided to combine something he loved, design, with the challenge of reading the text more often. He set down a goal to create one image a week based on what he found entertaining and meaningful in each of the bibles many books… and so far he’s kept the creativity flowing. For anyone familiar with the ancient stories, his simple images go a long way to summarize the general story of each book.

3D printed Organs From Regenerative Living Cells


ears01

In the most recent medical development in artificial organ creation, a team of scientists and physicians from cornell university have engineered 3D printed life-like ears used to treat children born with a congenital deformity called microtia, or help individuals who have lost part or all of their external ear in an accident or from cancer. The artificial body tissue is made by processing additive gels found within living cells – with collagen derived from rat tails and cartilage taken from cow ears. The modelling process is digitized into an assemble-able human ear, where then high-density gel, similar to the consistency of jell-o is injected into a mold – resulting in flesh resembling that of a human-being. In the future, the engineers will look at new ways to develop populations of human ear cartilage cells from patients instead of cow cartilage, which would reduce any possibility of rejection.
