The art and Science of CNC Waterjet and Laser Cutting   Major custom metalwork company in Brooklyn does some beautiful laser cutting, water-jet cutting, and bending for architecture, art, and interiors. Check out their videos too. - Evan

Laser cut artwork + bicycles + cameras = awesome
If attached to a bike wheel and filmed in motion this intricate paper cutout will animate to create lovely fluid movements; cogs turning and clouds growing and the like…I intend for these to be presented as art objects as in the pictures. I must stress, as I have many times with this project, this is about animation. It is not possible to see this with the naked eye. If you stick this on your bike you will not be able to see it unless you are filming it, I will include instructions on how to film it but I really see these more as pieces of art. - Alex

Self healing circuitry? Has any one seen our T-1000 around? - Gregg

Paper Powered Batteries   Students-destroy your failed assessments and cool down your beer at the same time! - Matt 

Wearable iPod Interface   Apple may be working on a wearable iPod with Siri. - Gregg

The Material Connexion   This is a database of innovative and sustainable materials.   Very cool. - Christine

Audi quattro   This is a great video about Audi’s quattro all wheel drive system.  (Subaru pays Audi a licensing fee for ever all wheel drive Subaru they sell.) - Adam

Invisibility cloak that uses the scientific principles of mirages to work. - Brandon

The art of Japanese Sword making still exists in Japan.   The video shows sword smithing and discuses the cultural importance of the art. - Gregg

The Bicycle Wheel Animation   This is really neat.   The video shows this art form much better than it can be described by words. - Yulia
