Since we last checked in, the Humble Friends of Nintendo Bundle has brought in over $1.2 million and added three extra titles -- Swords & Soldiers II (Wii U), Nano Assault EX (3DS), and Runbow (Wii U) -- for folks who choose the pay-more-than-the-average tier. Show More Summary
Humble Bundle's panoply of titles for Wii U and 3DS just grew by three. Until May 10, you can pay what you want for a curated selection of third-party games, including Nano Assault EX on 3DS, and Runbow and Swords and Soldiers 2 forShow More Summary
One of the frustrations of nanotechnology is that we generally can’t make nano materials in large quantities or at low cost, much less both. For the last five years a friend of mine has been telling me this story, explaining that there’s a secret manufacturing method and that he’s seen it. Show More Summary
It is still unclear what the impact is on humans, animals and plants of synthetic nanomaterials released into the environment or used in products. It’s very difficult to detect these nanomaterials in the environment since the concentrations are so low and the particles so small. Show More Summary

Researchers at University of Montreal have created a programmable DNA thermometer that is 20,000x smaller than a human hair. This scientific advance reported this week in the journal Nano Letters may significantly aid our understanding of natural and human designed nanotechnologies by enabling to measure temperature at the nanoscale. read more
A new anti-biofilm nano coating has been developed by a team of researchers. Their solution addresses a pervasive need to design environmentally friendly materials to impede dangerous surface bacteria growth, they say, holding potential for averting biofilm formed by surface-anchored bacteria.
BEER-SHEVA, Israel... April 25, 2016 - Researchers at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) have developed an innovative anti-biofilm coating, which has significant anti-adhesive potential for a variety of medical and industrial applications. According...Show More Summary
In the area of nano photonics, scientists for the first time succeeded in integrating a laser with an organic gain medium on a silicon photonic chip. This approach is of enormous potential for low-cost biosensors that might be used for near-patient diagnosis once and without any sterilization expenditure similar to today's strips for measuring blood sugar.

Smart synthetic skins have the potential to allow robots to touch and sense what's around them, but keeping them powered up and highly sensitive at low cost has been a challenge. Now scientists report in the journal ACS Nano a self-powered, transparent smart skin that is simpler and less costly than many other versions that have been developed. read more
It's always kinda crazy how something like A Dark Room [$0.99] managed to become such a mega hit in this day and age. Having a visually-appealing game seems paramount, but there was a game that somehow managed to really connect with people and be a smash hit despite having only text-based graphics. That's inspired other
Researchers have developed an intracellular recording device, a long three-dimensional nanoscale-tipped microneedle-electrodes. Moreover, they demonstrated the needle penetrations into muscle cells and measured the signals. The nanoelectrode,...Show More Summary
Computer cases are, for the most part, boring and annoying. They’re ugly, or they don’t fit your hardcore gaming components. But Swedish case and component brand Fractal Design has a new case, made for the small-and-efficient market, that actually suits PC gamers well at the same time. Show More Summary
Al Jazeera's Ehab Al Shihabi makes the case for smaller, more nimble local news outlets as the future of true investigative journalism. The post The Age of Nano News and Why We Must Pay appeared first on The Good Men Project.
Scientists have, for the first time, created a 3-D image of food on the nanometer scale. The method the scientists used is called Ptychographic X-ray computed tomography. It has promising prospects as a more detailed knowledge of the...Show More Summary
"There is still a lot we don't know about the structure of food, but this is a good step on the way to understanding and finding solutions to a number of problems dealing with food consistency, and which cost the food industry a lot of money," says Associate Professor Jens Risbo, Department of Food Science at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark.

Even as a child, I noticed that many people, especially my Depression-era grandmother, feared aging and the imminence of death. Death was no stranger to me growing up; I lost my then best friend, my Nano, and my uncle as a child, both traumatically. Yet, death was sad, but natural. Because of this, I never […]
