Portuguese designer Susana Soares has developed a device for detecting cancer and other serious diseases using trained bees. The bees are placed in a glass chamber into which the patient exhales; the bees fly into a smaller secondary chamber if they detect cancer.
Scientists have found that honey bees - Apis mellifera - have an extraordinary sense of smell that is more acute than that of a sniffer dog and can detect airborne molecules in the parts-per-trillion range.
Bees can be trained to detect specific chemical odours, including the biomarkers associated with diseases such as tuberculosis, lung, skin and pancreatic cancer.
FUCKING SAVE THE BEES THEYRE MIRACLE WORKERS OK
What do you do when you want a tattoo but don’t want the commitment of permanent ink? The moodInq system is a breakthrough in tattoo technology, using a skin-safe proprietary E ink encapsulated pigment system that lasts a lifetime but can be configured to display any design (or none!) to suit your mood.
So how does it work? We have partnered with leading physicians and technicians in the cosmetic surgery industry to implant the E ink grid, called a canvas. The canvas can go anywhere on your body and be configured to the size and shape of the body party you’d like to ink. After a short healing period (usually 2-3 days), you can begin using the moodInq software included with your kit to change your canvas to display the tattoo you desire! Found on ThinkGeek.
WHAT A GODDAMN TIME TO BE ALIVE

MVVA created two courtyards by cutting away the roof of the single-story office building to allow the sky and weather to penetrate the center of the structure.
The tactile and sensual qualities of the materials and their placement reinforce microclimatic differences in the courtyards, creating a terrace in the western courtyard where it is sunny in winter and a second terrace on the opposite side of the other courtyard where it is shaded in summer.
