Chinese hospital implanted 50 patients with 3-D printed parts with no adverse reactions


Using a printer to produce lifesaving medical implants and body parts might sound like science fiction, but it is already a reality in China. Peking University Third Hospital, a top hospital in China, recently announced that its Orthopedics Department has been using enhanced implants produced by a 3-D printer in a clinical trial, with promising results. “We started clinical trials on 3-D produced implants late last year, and now we have used dozens of such implants in more than 50 patients,” said Liu Zhongjun, director with the department.READ MORE ON PEKING UNIVERSITY

The visionary and surreal Art of Brian Smith

Some of his hypnotic portraiture communicates a subject frozen in a state of metamorphosis- as if simulating the moment of impact from an intense explosion, or the warping effects of time travel, or the painful reconfiguration of a being in a state of shape shifting. Brian’s paintings transport you to a place that is feels cold and isolated. Although I greatly enjoy visiting this foreboding place, it is not an environment I would want to be trapped inside.

Featured Curator: Justin Ruckman

From his self-made 8’ x 8’ backyard observatory in Michigan, Terry Hancock produces astronomical imagery rivaling that of NASA or JPL. His compositions are often the result of 15 hour integrations or longer, and feature such incredible attention to detail, framing, and color, that you could be forgiven for mistaking them as exquisitely crafted paintings. Much more of his work is available on his website, and on Flickr.
