"By training intense electron beams on the surface of metals, Bruce Dance and his team have found a way to fashion delicate metal projections that will act like ultra-strong Velcro to form much tougher joints between metals and lightweight composite materials in aircraft and cars. The projections could be used to encourage bone to grow onto artificial hips. They could also be used in electronics to produce heat sinks of just about any shape."
Exhibit B looks like weird Giger-esque pr0n.
I was thinking the same thing - then I moused over the link... it is Giger.
Exhibit B features a condom.
it IS giger's
Clearly you need more Giger. I've got a book - great stuff, and about half of his stuff is "pornographic" (meaning, it features tatas, hoohoos, or weewees ; although I doubt many masturbate to it).
One of my favorites is a series of paintings showing some kind of weird latch on the back of a garbage truck, slowly morphing into a vagina. Good stuff.
Couldn't find the painting I mentioned, but here's one featuring baby-headed condoms.
is the "interesting" one.
But that's no way to keep things connected. Well, the material may stay fused for a while but eventually it will start thinking about a roast beef sandwich. At least, that's my experience and, like I said, I'm no scientist.
Good going, you'll never be mayor of San Francisco now.
for the ultra-subtle Dead Kennedy reference.
You got it, Cap'n Exposition!
Yum. Tab A, Slot B. Ones and zeroes. Sticks and holes. Very elegant.
The projections could be used to encourage bone to grow onto artificial hips.
Huh huh, huh.
I thought it said "encourage bone to grow onto artificial LIPS". I was all excited about that. But artificial hips? No way.
Good God. Is that goatse?
Clearly this will revolutionize the cheese grater industry.
And mother nature offers her receiving end . . . but it is going to be a tight fit. They do not open up much more that ~15 Âµm!
