Mark Lopez/Argonne National Laboratory A group of researchers at the Argonne National Laboratory have developed a sponge that will collect oil from bodies of water, which could improve how harbors and ports are cleaned, as well as how oil spills are managed. The Oleo Sponge is made of a polyurethane foam whose interior surfaces are covered with oleophilic molecules that draw oil out of water. The challenge, according to Argonne, was finding a way to "glue" those oil-loving molecules to the sponge’s interior. That issue was tackled with the help of 2011 research from Argonne scientists , who were able to infuse metal oxide with nanostructures. The Oleo creators used that technique to develop a primer for the interior of the sponge that the oleophilic molecules stick to. The result is a sponge that can adsorb up to 90 times its weight in oil . Read 5 remaining paragraphs | Comments

It has been kicked around and neglected too long, like a former Kentucky Derby candidate chewing up pasture while awaiting a trip to the glue factory. Even so, a few dream that in a parallel universe, a place with less grandstanding about brave veterans and incompetent bureaucrats, a place with fewer lobbying dollars and more humility, the racehorse could keep on running. “Perhaps this was a golden era of the kind of, ‘Let's all make the world a better place by working together’ attitude,” Munnecke says. “It seems terribly naive today, but it was a driving force back then.”

Depending where you are in the world, the techniques used to build houses can sometimes seem to be stuck in another century. Bricks and mortar, for instance, we build with them because we are used to them and have a large workforce of people trained to work with them and not much else. But in the 21st century with more advanced building technologies sitting relatively unused and looming housing crises at every turn, does it make sense to still build houses the slow and expensive way our great-grandparents did? Probably not. Wooden houses are a promising solution to some of the problems outlined in the previous paragraph, and indeed in large parts of the world wood is the housing material of choice. It's eco-friendly, not too expensive, and can be applied easily to multiple different types of structure. If you think of a wooden house, does the image of a log cabin come to mind, or perhaps a weatherboard house? Both construction methods that would be familiar again to your great-grandparents, so perhaps you might not call it an advanced building technology.

Here at Design that Matters we do a lot of 3D printing, so we've built up this collection of handy but inexpensive tools for supporting our 3D printers. They live in IKEA silverware caddies mounted next to the machines and they just make the work go easier. 1. Super Lube synthetic grease for the build plate lead screw (the lube supplied with most machines gets used up quickly). A single tube of lube lasts for ages. 2. Cheap cutting pliers for trimming PLA spools. 3. Metal feeler gauge for consistent results when manually leveling the printer build plate (Makerbot Rep2 works best when the 0.2mm gauge just fits between nozzle and build plate). 4. UHU glue stick for securing prints to build plate (useful even with heated build plates). This works better and is more convenient than covering the build plate with blue painter's tape. 5. Window scraper for removing glue residue and stubborn PLA deposits from build plate.

lich researchers have succeeded in controlling the growth of organic molecules using a special trick. Molecules that repel each other play a key role in this process: due to their opposing forces, they always keep a certain distance from their neighbours. Therefore, they mix easily with a second, mutually attracting type of molecule that enters the spaces in-between and acts as a sort of "glue". Tailored surface structures can thus be put together like pieces in a puzzle - in a seemingly self-solving manner. Applications in the field of organic electronics in particular could stand to benefit from this method.

If you don't save tissue paper from countless birthday parties your child attends, no worries! Tear text and/or images from newspapers and magazines. Another good substitute (that actually extends the length of time for the project secret parent wink ;) for tissue paper is torn paper towel strips that get individually painted, dried and then arranged on the canvas. White school glue works just as well as Mod Podge or decoupage adhesive. Get the full instructions right here ! Next up is the good ole Apple Stamp Table Runner DIY . No apples? No problem. Grab a potato instead and (have the adult) cut out an apple shape. Use an old sheet for the runner fabric. If that's not an option, taping sheets of paper together to create one will do. Time stretcher tip: Have your child draw a series of shapes and cut them out. The more ideas/shapes the better.

Sug-what? Pronounced seew-grew, this sticky substance is like moldable glue that's clay-like out of the package, then hardens to rubber after 24 hours. People have found all sorts of ways to fix and create things with this flexible, interesting stuff. But perhaps most intriguing is its potential for renters. Since Sugru adheres to most substances — like ceramic tile, wood, and plastic — but can also be easily removed, it's potentially a way to hang items temporarily without using nails or drilling. Sounds revolutionary right? We put it to the test to find out just how fantastic Sugru is... READ MORE »
