Battle For Endor- my painting I did of the battle scene from Return Of The Jedi, I hope you enjoy. it’s older work, just reposting my art
At one point, the “S” might as well have stood for “Stupid Magic Fingers”.
#5. Superman Can Shoot Tiny Supermen Out of His Fingers
In this classic story from 1958, Superman runs into a space ship that explodes in his face when he touches it, granting him the ability to project miniature Super-replicas to do his bidding. Superman’s mini-mes have the same powers as he does, but unfortunately they can’t use said powers at the same time, leaving him helpless and resentful of his own finger-children. It doesn’t help that all of Metropolis goes completely apeshit with super-dwarf fever. And as it turns out, that explosion gave Superman another new superpower: the ability to be a cold-blooded motherfucking killer, because he actually tries to murder the little shits with kryptonite…
The UFO of Collins Beach - Along the treeline of Collins Beach on Sauvie Island just outside of Portland, Oregon, sits a mysterious and legendary vessel that hasn’t seen action in many years. Here it lies tethered by cable to a nearby tree becoming fodder for local graffiti artists.
12 Technologies That Are Improving at Insane Speeds
Business Insider published this graphic as part of an article they did summarizing the McKinsey report which featured disruptive technologies that are impacting the global economy.
BY TOM ABATE -
Stanford scientists have developed a new circuit board modeled on the human brain, possibly opening up new frontiers in robotics and computing.
For all their sophistication, computers pale in comparison to the brain. The modest cortex of the mouse, for instance, operates 9,000 times faster than a personal computer simulation of its functions.

Conscious Brain-to-Brain Communication in Humans Using Non-Invasive Technologies
In short, understandable words: Scientists have successfully transported words from one brain to another over the internet.
Human sensory and motor systems provide the natural means for the exchange of information between individuals, and, hence, the basis for human civilization. The recent development of brain-computer interfaces (BCI) has provided an important element for the creation of brain-to-brain communication systems, and precise brain stimulation techniques are now available for the realization of non-invasive computer-brain interfaces (CBI). These technologies, BCI and CBI, can be combined to realize the vision of non-invasive, computer-mediated brain-to-brain (B2B) communication between subjects (hyperinteraction). Here we demonstrate the conscious transmission of information between human brains through the intact scalp and without intervention of motor or peripheral sensory systems. Pseudo-random binary streams encoding words were transmitted between the minds of emitter and receiver subjects separated by great distances, representing the realization of the first human brain-to-brain interface. In a series of experiments, we established internet-mediated B2B communication by combining a BCI based on voluntary motor imagery-controlled electroencephalographic (EEG) changes with a CBI inducing the conscious perception of phosphenes (light flashes) through neuronavigated, robotized transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), with special care taken to block sensory (tactile, visual or auditory) cues. Our results provide a critical proof-of-principle demonstration for the development of conscious B2B communication technologies. More fully developed, related implementations will open new research venues in cognitive, social and clinical neuroscience and the scientific study of consciousness. We envision that hyperinteraction technologies will eventually have a profound impact on the social structure of our civilization and raise important ethical issues.
3D Printed Cast Design Heals Patients 40% Faster
A Turkish student has designed a 3D printed cast prototype that could help speed up the healing process by 40% when worn. The prototype, called Osteoid, utilizes proven healing benefits from low-intensity pulsed ultrasound. Its design focuses on comfort and improvement of overall healing for the patient.
