A complete start to finish electronics prototyping workshop is nirvana for many of us: being able

A complete start to finish electronics prototyping workshop is nirvana for many of us: being able to go from design on the computer to real hardware without having to get up from your rolling chair. The falling prices of 3D printers have helped make at least part of this a reality: $200 USD is enough to get you a printer that can churn out decent looking enclosures. But there’s more to producing your own hardware than creating slick looking project boxes; at some point you’ll need to put some electronics in there. For [Chuck Hellebuyck] at least, the last piece of the puzzle has just fallen into place. He’s recently put up a YouTube video describing how he converted his $399 Sienci Mill One into a capable PCB mill. With a 3D printer and this new PCB mill, he’s happy to say he can now go from concept to production all on the same workbench. The Sienci Mill One is a solid enough mill in its own right but did need some modification to attain the accuracy necessary for cutting at a depth of only .9 mm. First, a block of wood was cut to the same size as the original plastic bed of the Sienci, and then the mill itself was used to drill holes through the wood block and plastic bed. The...

14-year-old Louisville entrepreneurs get products featured at 2019 Emmy Awards

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — While many kids are out playing sports or video games with their friends, two young teenage entrepreneurs in Louisville are spending their spare time building a business, and it has now landed them in Hollywood. “We created Ooh La Lemon because we love working together,” co-founder of Ooh La Lemon, Hailey Hertzman said. Operating a lemonade stand as a kid could be pretty simple – squeeze lemons and charge a quarter for a cup, but Hailey and Katie took that idea to the next level. “We both really loved running the lemonade stand so we thought why not run our own business with our own products,” Hertzman said. At 12-years-old, the two won the 2017 National Entrepreneur of the Year Award from Lemonade Day – a program teaching children how to start, own and run their own business. Using their prize money, the girls co-founded Ooh La Lemon. “We sell purses, dog collars, leashes, bow tie sets, kitchen supplies, dish towels, and socks,” Hertzman said.The girls sell hip and trendy lemon-inspired products online and at a pop-up shop. It caught Hollywood’s attention, at this year’s Primetime Emmy Awards.”We couldn’t believe it,” Vonder...

21 skin-care products with near-perfect Amazon reviews

To me, it sounds more like the riddle of what would happen if you were to finally reach the ends of the Earth, or beat an unbeatable video game. Does the internet break? Does time cease and then, rapidly, ominously, move backward?  Guessing by Amazon’s selection size, we aren’t going to find out any time soon. Put that existential dread to bed. The online behemoth’s sheer plethora of options makes it both the most convenient place to buy what you already know you love, and one of the tougher places to apply its frequent discounts to new worthwhile buys — like skin care, which can be more expensive than it warrants thanks to beauty industry markups.  Below, I’ve compiled a list of 23 solid skin-care products flying under the radar on Amazon that you may want to check out the next time you need a Vitamin C Serum and don’t want to drop $100 or more on one. The following cult-favorites have hundreds — if not thousands — of five-star reviews you can vet yourself before buying, too.  Thayers’ witch hazel toner is a cult favorite of the online beauty community. It has over 10,000 five-star reviews on Amazon and is consistently one of the site’s...

BioBits™ Bright: A fluorescent synthetic biology education kit

↵† Present address: Ombudsman Chicago South CPS Options School, 6057 South Western Avenue, Chicago, IL 60636–2019, USA. Synthetic biology offers opportunities for experiential educational activities at the intersection of the life sciences, engineering, and design. However, implementation of hands-on biology activities in classrooms is challenging because of the need for specialized equipment and expertise to grow living cells. We present BioBits™ Bright, a shelf-stable, just-add-water synthetic biology education kit with easy visual outputs enabled by expression of fluorescent proteins in freeze-dried, cell-free reactions. We introduce activities and supporting curricula for teaching the central dogma, tunable protein expression, and design-build-test cycles and report data generated by K-12 teachers and students. We also develop inexpensive incubators and imagers, resulting in a comprehensive kit costing <US$100 per 30-person classroom. The user-friendly resources of this kit promise to enhance biology education both inside and outside the classroom. Synthetic biology aims to program biological systems to carry out useful functions. As a field, synthetic biology has made me...

While laser cutting remains the dominant force for rapid prototyping anything made of plastic, MDF or

While laser cutting remains the dominant force for rapid prototyping anything made of plastic, MDF or wood, the real holy grail is the ability to cut metal — something most laser cutters are just not capable of. In the industry, this is done using extremely high-powered laser cutters, plasma cutters, or water jet cutters. All of which are very pricey equipment for a hacker. Until now anyway. Introducing the Tinijet, the missing tool for affordable water jet cutting. We first covered this project a few years ago when it was just a university research project called Hydro — it’s since evolved immensely, and will be available for sale very soon. While the following video is just a rendering, they demonstrated a prototype of the unit at CES 2016. According to the spec sheet, the working area is only 300x300mm but it is capable of cutting up to 6mm aluminum, and 4mm thick steel or titanium. The operating pressure is a whopping 17,000 PSI or 1200 bar. We want one. I remember the Hydro running around $15k for components but they couldn’t find a low cost pump to go above 10K, and they somewhat cheated and used shop air to power it (inefficiently). My calculations from then said they nee...

In a mission of forgiveness, churches around the country are buying up medical debt for pennies

In a mission of forgiveness, churches around the country are buying up medical debt for pennies on the dollar then erasing the debts of strangers. Since the start of 2018, at least 18 churches nationwide have abolished more than $34 million burdening America’s most debt-ridden patients. (Roxie Hammill, 6/3) A proposed adjustment to the wage index, used in setting a hospital’s Medicare reimbursement payments, could be a lifeline for some rural facilities.

60 simple sustainability tips to make your home, garden and life better

It’s all very well to be concerned about the planet, but what can we actually do to help? Julie Harding spoke to experts to get their tips on practical steps we can all make to live a more sustainable life in all areas of our homes and gardens. This article appears in the June 26 issue of Country Life, our first ever sustainability issue, which has tips, opinion and messages of hope for the things we can do to save the planet. Those words ring truer today than ever before. We all need to make changes to save the world around us. Some people will try to tell you otherwise. They’ll cite the emissions of overseas nations, or claim that volcanic eruptions dwarf man-made CO2. But they’re entirely missing the point. ‘One individual’s action may not make a big difference, but, by adding them all together, there will be a massive saving in the collective carbon footprint,’ says Dr Milena Buchs, associate professor in sustainability, economics and low-carbon transmissions at the University of Leeds’ School of Earth and Environment. 1. More than any other room in the house, the kitchen generates a huge amount of packaging waste. A 2018 survey by Recoup showed that 525,000 tonnes of ...

Organic Baby Clothes: Ten Baby Brands That Are Stylish And Safe

This story was written in collaboration with Forbes Finds. Forbes Finds covers products and experiences we think you’ll love. Featured products are independently selected and linked to for your convenience. If you buy something using a link on this page, Forbes may receive a small share of that sale. The Millennial shoppers who gave steam to Fashion Revolution and other anti-fast-fashion movements are growing up—and using the same consumer ethics when purchasing clothes for their little ones. The demand for organic and sustainably made baby clothing is stronger than ever— and you don’t have to be an avid researcher to make the right choices. Start with brands certified by the The Global Organic Textile Standard (to ensure the company meets ecological and social criteria in the manufacturing of its textiles). Even more important than knowing that your baby’s onesies were made under eco-friendly and humane conditions is knowing that the organic cotton is made without chemicals, pesticides and flame retardants. And with up to 20% of all infants experiencing eczema, you may want to look for companies certified by OEKO-TEX Standard 100, to further ensure the fabric protects aga...
