Human replicators: Science-Fiction no-more

If you are a geek, and of a certain age, you must certainly remember the “Replicators” those wonderful little gadgets on-board Star Treck’s USS Enterprise which would print or  every room of the ship, where any one of the crew could stop by, and order it for, well, anything. McCoy felt like drinking a beer? No problem! Step up to the mike, young lad!

In this article, you can read how scientist using biological matter and a US $1,000 off the shelf 3D printer, have created a “bionic designer ear” that actually functions. This impressive advance in, well printing, would have made Gutenberg, and Treckies alike proud, and that people, that is dope!

High gasoline prices, rising unemployment, bad diets & lots of sunshine are not necessarily the Dopest of things, but as with every dark cloud, there is a silver lining:

Bicycle use is increasing in many parts of the world, and it is now “tres chick” to be seen around ridding one. Copenhagen, Paris, NYC, and even Demoines Iowa…

Superior color match matching bike, bag, color & function.
