- Rock Climbing at 83 : We looked at the story of the incredible Robert Kelman, who took up rock climbing in 1971 and is still doing it at the age of 83. Nice one.
- Brain Injuries and Sports : We looked at this from a couple of angles during the week – a study involving a number of MMA athletes, and attitudes toward CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy) on the NFL side of the fence. Interesting area.
- 3D-printed Replacement Skin That Matches Your Own : We’ve seen a number of incredible 3D printing ideas over the past few years, and this one holds enormous promise. 3D-printed skin.
- Body Piercing Controls Wheelchair : This is a very powerful idea. A tongue piercing containing a tiny magnet has been successfully used to control a range of devices, simply by moving the tongue within the mouth.
Although the demonstrated use is for tetraplegics to control their own wheelchairs (truly incredible), it could be use in many, many other ways. Fantastic.
We also talked about the FDA vs 23andMe battle, how exercise may dramatically slow the progression Huntington’s Disease and a whole lot more. Join the discussion in the Straight to the Bar Community on Google+.
