Comments Off on Video Shows How “Cheap” Expensive Designer Sweaters Really Are

What’s the most you’d ever pay for a sweater? $50? $150? What if it was made by a big name designer like Prada, Jill Sander, or Celine and Chloe? Last season, these and other designers sent sweaters with $1,300 price tags out into the market.

Comments Off on Twelve-Year-Old Creates Working Braille Printer Using Lego Mindstorms Kit

These days, it’s not unusual to meet a teenager with a head full of marketable ideas. Unlike some enterprising youngsters, however,  Shubham Banerjee isn’t on a quest for fame or fortune. The 12 year-old California seventh grader has a unique understanding of technology’s power to create positive change in the world, and if his recent science fair project is any indication, we can expect big things from his brain. Rather than develop yet another baking soda volcano, Banerjee used a  Lego Mindstorms EV3 kit and a few bucks worth of hardware from Home Depot to create a working Braille printer that costs a fraction of similar gadgets currently on the market. Keep reading to find out how he did it and why.

Unfortunately for the makers of US currency, that means they can now no longer use the waste fabric from jeans to create dollar bills.
