1周至少读1本书的人生,做到就是赚到

记得那是在二十世纪八十年代末,我当时正坐在一个大学演讲大厅里听艾比·霍夫曼(Abbie Hoffman)的演讲,他是一位作家也是一位激进主义分子,正在慷慨激昂地吐槽我们这一代人的冷漠。坐在我旁边的是格洛丽亚·爱默生(Gloria Emerson),一位聪慧又独特的记者和作家。<p>我们讨论着霍夫曼的演讲,我告诉她,自己特别喜欢穿梭于火花迸溅的思想交锋中。我说:“能够在这里与颖悟绝伦的人交谈,成为他们中的一员,真是难得的机会。”<p>“天啊,你别说傻话了,”她却如此回应我,“任何人都可以参与这种交流对话,只要读一些书就好了!”<p>想想惭愧,上大学时,我读历史专业,那时候每周都能读3-4本书。格洛丽亚的话很有道理 …

驾驶 NASA 这款电动车,你也可以做藤原拓海

现时市面上能买的电动车都是主打速度或续航力,但上图这款由 NASA Johnson Space Center 所研发的则有趣得多了。上图这款全电动的小车名为 Modular Robotic Vehicle(MRV),外观的确没有什么特别,不过看了它的行驶视频就会有不同感想了。它四个车轮都是可以独立转向,而且每个都可以转 180 度之多,所以要原地打转没难度。更强的是,车上除了有传统的方向盘和油门之外,驾驶座的右边还有一支操纵杆,据视频所示,它理应是用来控制车身的水平移动,配合著方向盘的适当操作的话,就可以轻易地在低速行驶之下飘移了!有了这款车,谁也可以做藤原拓海呢~<p>经由: Engadget<p>来源 …

这颗 3D 打印的脑肿瘤,能给未来医疗什么启示

俗话说,久病成良医。说的是病人会主动寻找适合自己的治疗方法。而在 MIT Media Lab 读机械工程学博士的 Steven Keating 不是普通的病人,他依靠自己的医疗数据,不仅帮助医生诊断出了自己的脑肿瘤,还把它 3D 打印了出来。<p>《纽约时报》报道了Keating 的故事。他在 8 年前的体检中查出脑部有异常。虽然医生说没有大碍,他却从那时开始自己研究脑内结构,并在后来的每次体检中向医生索要详细的诊断数据,形成自己的医疗档案。去年夏天,他发现检查结果中有可疑的迹象,便强烈要求医生为他做 MRI ,结果发现脑内有个网球大小的肿瘤,通过手术移除、逃过了癌症的诅咒。<p>从 8 年前到现在,Ke …
