Artist Creates Nanosculptures Smaller Than a Human Hair

A sculpture so tiny that it cannot be seen by the naked eye is claimed the smallest sculpture of the human form ever created. A new series of equally diminutive sculptures are at a scale so infinitesimally miniscule that each of the figures is approximately equal in size to the amount your fingernails grow in around about 6 hours, and can only be viewed using a scanning electron microscope.

Being Shown Pictures of Being Loved May Reduce Brain’s Response to Threat

Researchers from the University of Exeter found that when individuals are briefly presented pictures of others receiving emotional support and affection, the brain’s threat monitor, the amygdala, subsequently does not respond to images showing threatening facial expressions or words. This occurred even if the person was not paying attention to the content of the first pictures.

What Is The Internet Of Things? (Hint: It’s a Game Changer)

“We humans have indeed always been adept at dovetailing our minds and skills to the shape of our current tools and aids. But when those tools and aids start dovetailing back — when our technologies actively, automatically, and continually tailor themselves to us, just as we do to them — then the line between tool and user becomes flimsy indeed.” – Andy Clark
