Have we grown too dependent on electricity so that we would be willing to add strain to our hearts to power our smart phones? Artist Naomi Kizhner thinks so and created jewelry that will theoretically use the pumping of your heart to push blood out of your veins, into a trinket to turn a turbine, and then back to into your body. It could be like Mary Lightly of Psych’s ever-present ankle weights.
2. Totally NSFW the Shebangers discuss the Lily Cup Compact, a proposed menstrual cup to be used in lieu of tampons that is making a splash (hopefully only metaphorically) on Kickstarter. The conversation in worth a private listen.
3. How many times have you yearned to careen through the air in a windowless, metal tube? Well, the Centre for Process Innovation has heard our pleas and answered them with an airplane that has no windows, but instead video screens for walls showing what is happening outside the airplane. Tune is to hear Shelley share insights from the original astronauts.
