DDM Systems LAMP
New 3D printer based investment casting technique. Cuts out 7 of 12 steps, possibly a faster alternative to 3D lost wax process. UV laser builds up powdered ceramic resin for cores and molds. Aiming for single crystal directionally solidified equiaxial nickel superalloy hollow turbine blade production.

Copy large files using ESEUTIL | D(one) IT on
There's an Exchange utility, originally intended for mailstore moves, that does unbuffered high speed IO file copies. Though the performance boost seems best on the source machine for the transfer, and is largely mitigated by the robocopy /J flag (unbuffered IO) available on 7/2008R2.

Some sort of new slumped glass mirror type with fancy fire and waterjet machining, enabling 75Kg/m2 2.5cm thick 8m diameter class mirrors with active adaptive optics. If that optical cloaking stuff works out for hiding the secondary mirror, this might get really interesting.

Using Bulk Filament Spools with Cube 3D Printer

UCSD Jacobs School of Engineering
Apparently Toucan birds have a highly mechanically optimized beak. Very lightweight, with a hollow structure where there are no stresses, and elsewhere a bone fiber/membrane foam enclosed by an outer keratin tile sheet exterior, creating a natural biocomposite foam sandwich material in their beaks. Still doesn't explain fully why the beaks are so large, especially for a fruit eater. There was other research into beak properties by using IR camera studies, and it appears the beak is also used as a high performance controllable blood heat radiator to dump metabolic heat. They do interesting tricks like doing a burst of heat dumping just prior to going to sleep to slow down metabolic processes quicker.

Re-Envisioning the Telescope
Interesting way of making huge primary telescopes, using holographic sheet diffraction ratings, suitable for space telescopes. I wonder if the reverse works, shining a high power laser back out the scope to achieve a wide aperture primary.

NASA - OCCAMS: Optically Controlled and Corrected Active Meta-material Space Structures
Wow, using photonic muscles embedded in a deployable thin film mirror, using a raster scanning laser to tweak the mirror as an active optical correction primary aperture mirror by using the muscles to deform the mirror. But, the concept suspiciously looks similar to a stealth radar deflection cone for spysats patented by Teledyne Ryan and allegedly used on Misty 1/2 and NROL-15.
