Spaxels let you draw 3D figures in the air using light.  These guys chose to draw a teapot.  I approve — but it would also be great to draw charts and graphs, no?

Araripe manakin (Antilophia bokermanni)

The Araripe manakin is a critically endangered bird from the family of manakins. As typical of most manakins, males and females have a strong sexual dimorphism in the colors of the plumage. The strikingly patterned males have a predominantly white plumage with black wings and tail. From the frontal tuft, over the crown, down to the middle back runs a carmine red patch. The iris is red. The females are mainly olive green. This species is endemic to the Chapada do Araripe (Araripe uplands) in the Brazilian state of Ceará in the north eastern region of the country. In 2000 there was an estimated population of less than 50 individuals and it was considered as one of the rarest birds in Brazil and in the world.

DARPA: Jetpack developed to help every soldier run 4 minute miles but currently provides 5-12% assist

Nice What if? project from scientist at Arizona State, who developed a small personal wearable jetpack for DARPA to help soldiers run faster.

Let’s combine this with exoskeletons & fire-resistant synthetic spider silk body-armour and you get the futurific soldier from the future.

What if every soldier could run a four-minute mile? That’s the goal behind 4MM, or 4 Minute Mile, a student project to create a wearable jetpack that enhances speed and agility. Working with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and a faculty mentor, Jason Kerestes is the mastermind behind 4MM. He built a prototype of the jetpack and is now testing and refining his design to be as effective as possible.
The 4MM project is part of an ASU program called iProjects, which brings students and industry together to find innovative solutions to real-world problems. See an overview of this year’s iProjects here: researchmatters.asu.edu/videos/students-solve-industry-challenges-through-iprojects
Produced by Alexander D. Chapin. Additional videography by Kirk Davis and Matthew Larsen researchmatters.asu.edu Join the conversation… facebook.com/asuresearchmatters twitter.com/asuresearch
