In the March issue of Materials World, we write about nanotube-covered titanium that could be used as blood-repellent medical implants. This can be used as clot-resistant surgical implants, described by Dr Arun Kota as ‘the Holy Grail of the medical device industry.’
I’m reminded of a previous demonstration of tuneable superomniphobic surfaces from Kota back in 2014. Again working with titanium, the coating is able to trap certain low surface tension liquids on a variable scale. Also, it looks kinda cool.
Guys imagine if a few years from now the rest of the world has forgotten about pitch perfect and suddenly Snow uploads a video on youtube and theyre like I know you’ve always wanted it and suddenly Kendrick appears and they sing the whole titanium
Recent photos from the Queensland Cup in Australia where I got to profight against Astrid, who unnervingly giggles when she gets hits.
I beat her this time but with some more training, she’ll be a tank!
Also featuring my new green jupon that I made!

1. NASA plans to use additive manufacturing to create woven
metal fabrics for use in space.
2. Three prototypes have been made so far, in stainless
steel, titanium and metal-coated nylon reinforced with carbon fibre.
3. Raul Polit-Casillas, Systems Engineer at NASA’s Jet
Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, USA, and his colleagues have designed
these space fabrics to be reflective, foldable and to have tensile strength and
passive heat management, with one side of the fabric absorbing light and the
other reflecting it.
4. The use of additive manufacturing reduces the costs of
traditional manufacturing. The print time varies between a few hours and a
couple of days depending on the material and printer used, according to
5. In the distant future, the JPL team also wants to be able
to manufacture fabrics in space and potentially recycle old materials, due to
the limited availability

Newest dabber!!! ✨✨✨
Hanging river pearl with a turquoise bead because turquoise just looks so clean with gold.
Gold wire all around accented with spirals.
Definitely one of my favorites, super classy and the pearl dangled so nicely as well as the turquoise being the perfect place to put your thumb.
Let me know what you guys think!
