Bacterial Nanobionics via 3D Printing - Nano Letters (ACS Publications)

This is borderline cooling version of a perpetual energy generator, but this is an interesting take on fog net concepts. By lightly ionizing the fog and the capture mesh/net, you can get fog droplets to condense better on the net and exceed normal fog nets (which capture 1-3% of passing droplets).

AuB - Athlete micro-biome Bank
So a former soccor player is collecting athlete poop for human microbiome specimens. Since apparently high performance atheletes seem to have fairly different microbiomes from the average person, this is a source of interest for human biology. Potentially, this could lead to performance enhancement treatments, similar to fecal transplants that current move new gut bacteria into people with no/poor performing gut microbiomes.

C4: the continuously concurrent compacting collector - c4_paper_acm.pdf
Lock free high performance low latency GC, currently used in the Zing java JVM by bankers. Requires 100x page remapping performance compared to page allocation, but they are achieving something like 700TB/s remapping so they are doing pretty good.

Mars Molniya Orbit Atmospheric Resource Mining | NASA
Interesting cyclic PROFAC for Mars. Using Molniya orbits is certainly different, but the main part looks to be a deep diver atmospheric scoop that spends more time out of atmosphere to cool/liquify propellant. Is this simply aerocapture by another name?

Updated parametric study of orbital fuel depot atmospheric gas collector designs, notably PROFAC. Some of the study decisions I take issue with, but the results are useful. Generally, unless serious tricks are involved, particularly power density, air scoopers aren't happening. Good match for beamed power applications, and there might be room for tethered scoop trawler designs that get more of the power system mass in lower drag higher orbits.

New Measurement Device Helps Monitor Power Consumption via Power Line -- Tech-On!
So somebody is finally getting around to the problem of monitoring non-smart appliances and getting the data to building management systems without having to install new networking lines (while avoiding wireless like ZigBee due to limited spectrum) by using an inline PLC modem to send data to a management station/controller. Smart to use the inline device as a switchable sensor/master. Now if only somebody like Intel or Atmel or TI could make a nice single chip hybrid sensor/PLC modem for both retrofit and new build devices, things could really change.

MAGHOUND - A magazine membership service featuring hundreds of magazines from major publishers
I think the idea is to send you a single monolithic bound magazine monthly, composed of monthly magazines you want. The selection of magazines is custom to you apparently and can change by month. I guess this is a kind of sustainer business for on-demand publishers to keep the presses moving, maybe. If nothing else, it's a little more environmentally friendly to ship all your monthly magazines in one go.
