New Perspective for Immune System “Enhancement”

Japanese scientists succeeded to grow in vitro a huge number of lymphocytes which  could potentially be used against cancer cells and HIV. In vitro means cultivated and grown in artificial laboratory environment (i.e. opposite of in vivo, which is growth in a living organism as in the nature). This research is published in the journal Cell Stem Cell. The cells naturally exist in small numbers, but it is hoped injecting huge amounts back into a patient could be the ultimate stimulation for the immune system. Experts said the results had exciting potential, but any therapy must be proven as safe. The […]

Beer Hotel

Potts Naturpark Brauerei is located in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany and exists from the beginning of 19th century, supplying Germans (and not only) with quality beer since then.

While eating, the average human feels satiety after 20 minutes. So, if you eat faster you will eat more and therefore gain more weight. 2.

Gastric reflux occurs more often at people who feed themselves faster. 4. […]

Burning Cup

Burning cup is designed by Ryan Jongwoo Choi,  which prevents the liquid inside from cooling down due to heat release to outside. The sodium acetate contained within the walls of this cup can keep the heat of beverage. This liquid solution breaks the balance of liquid state by even tiny impact and hardens it solid, and at this time generates heat instantly. This heat allows the temperature of the beverage in the cup to be kept for a period of time consistently, the heat contained in the beverage is delivered again to the outside sodium acetate, and makes the solid into […]

Like-a-Hug Vest

Many smartphones can notify you when you get a Facebook “like” with some ringtone or pop-up. But if you already feel bored from this, you can buy that vest which takes it a step further and actually gives you a friendly hug. The “Like-A-Hug” vest was developed by Melissa Kit Chow at the MIT Media Lab. She wanted to “build” a bridge over the distance that separates people using virtual contacts — after all, as much as you like or comment on someone’s publications, it’s not the same as being there. However, Melissa did not made this alone. She was […]
