MTSI Announces Rapid Aerial Extraction System – Modern Technology Solutions, Inc.
Kinda like those old missionary aerial postal mail pickup tricks doing a pylon turn, but, uh, getting dragged into the sky and towed externally until some dropoff point where they parachute back down seems, skeezy, and potentially very cold...

Apparently the Atlantic Killifish has some sort of rapid evolution gene quirk, which has allowed it to adapt quickly to human polluted waters fast.

Rapid, Puncture-Initiated Healing via Oxygen-Mediated Polymerization - ACS Macro Letters (ACS Publications)
Hole filling polymer structure that reacts with oxygen may be suitable for spaceship hull breaches by space junk, provide the rapid polymerized plug doesn't get blown out by the vacuum pressure of space.

TOSA buses power up for less
Interesting arm mechanism and bus stop overhead design for the flash charger system. Overhead fast recharge is somewhat attractive from an installation standpoint (no road ripping for a embedded inductive charger), but like any flash system, requires high power delivery equipment. Also, paired flywheels sound like a better mechanism for the bus energy storage, and perhaps the bus stop's buffer bank

re:char | shop-in-a-box
A compact 20 foot ISO (TEU) Shop-in-a-Box, basically a portable prototyping factory. Features a plasma cutter/wood router CNC table, assorted welding tools, a generator+solar panels, a 3D printer, and hand tools Intended for East Africa, but now opensourced for regular folks, though if you are in a hurry they can make a compete one for you in 3 months.

Achieving the next level of economic growth rate will take more than a manufacturing revolution
Nice fusion of technologies being pursued by DARPA. The idea of a general manufacturing plant, complete with general purpose robot arm manipulators so the production line can be reconfigured quickly, a vehicle part design library called vehicleforge, and the META metalanguage for virtual vehicle prototyping has huge implications for modern manufacturing.

Desktop Factory: 3D Printers
Uses a halogen lamp rather than a laser for sintering/heating the material, but apparently suffers from an overhang support substrate problem (not that big a deal)?
