University of Nottingham professor Harminder Dua recently discovered a new human body part and named it after himself because that’s what you get to do when you discover things. Now I know what you’re all hoping for, and sadly, no, it’s not some sort of new hidden penis.
Dua’s layer sits at the back of the cornea, which previously had only five known layers. Dua and his colleagues discovered the new body part by injecting air into the corneas of eyes that had been donated for research and using an electron microscope to scan each separated layer.
The researchers now believe that a tear in Dua’s layer is the cause of corneal hydrops, a disorder that leads to fluid buildup in the cornea. According to Dua, knowledge of the new layer could dramatically improve outcomes for patients undergoing corneal grafts and transplants.
“…discovered the new body part by injecting air into the corneas of eyes that had been donated for research…” Can you imagine being the person who’s job it is to scoop the eyeballs out of dead people who checked the organ donor box on their driver’s license? Because I don’t think I could do it.
Thanks to E V I L A R E S, who’s so evil if he ever discovered something he would name it I Hate You.
That baffling metallic Nokia EOS chassis we saw the other day? It’s back, but this time the same leakster from Sina Weibo managed to get a shot of at least 12 of them, meaning the device has likely reached some sort of production stage. In another photo, we can see the same button arrangement — presumably volume, power and camera — that’s already present on the current Lumia range. The strange thing is we’ve yet to see a cover plate that will match this seemingly smaller camera opening, but the square shape does make us wonder whether this will fit Pelican Imaging’s 16-lens array camera. After all, Nokia did announce its investment in this plenoptic camera technology. Hopefully Elop will personally explain what’s going on at his event on July 11th — maybe with both this and the plastic EOS in his hands.

Nokia announced its latest Lumia 928 handset on Friday, but the company has more planned for an event in London next week. On Sunday, Nokia teased part of this announcement during a commercial break on British TV. The short promo shows the rear of a device with a hump around the large camera lens and an accompanying flash arrangement. “More than your eyes can see,” reads the accompany text between various images of the device.
Nokia’s teaser looks a lot like the leaked photos of its aluminum “Catwalk” device, which The Verge understands are genuine images of an upcoming Nokia flagship. The hump and placement of the flash is identical and the teaser appears to show a device with a metal exterior. However, Nokia is also preparing a 4…
Rumors of an upcoming iPad sporting a similar design as the iPad mini go as far back as late January this year, when our reliable buddies at 9to5Mac shared some clear images of a leaked chassis (check them out at the “More Coverage” link below). This was followed by an alleged picture of the front panel sent out around previously this month. However as before, cases for this unreleased “iPad 5″ have likewise been making the rounds in China, and we’ve handled to get our hands on one at the Hong Kong Electronic devices Fair earlier today. It coincides old tale according to a staff at the booth: the case is based upon a leaked mold. Oops!
Compared with a similar case made for the 2 latest generations of the bigger iPad, this case again suggests a slimmer and narrower iPad is in the works, which would suggest that this mysterious tablet is most likely to have the exact same display size however thinner left and right-side bezels– just like the iPad mini. Similarly, the straighter edges support 9to5Mac’s earlier leakage of the iPad mini-like body. Let’s simply hope that Apple will still have a couple of shocks up its sleeves then, eh?

Do you suffer from “sore elbows, wrists and hands from having to hold small and awkward shapes?” Have you found that “products are confusing to impossible to control?” Do you know what a phthalates is and are you embarrassed by the packaging of your favorite personal massager products? Has Revel Body got a product for you.
This crowdfunded project aims to make your alone time (or time spent with friends) more rewarding. The product, essentially a sonic vibrator, is designed for ladies and, presumably, men. The team, led by Robin Elenga, has created a high-frequency system for offering a better “buzz” during those moments when you’re visiting the Palms Hotel.
The product offers “50 percent more power” and “400 percent vibration range” and reduces the vibrations felt in the hand and focuses those vibrations on sore muscles and/or your vagina.
The product uses a resonating motor to offer a larger range of vibration speeds and sensations and it’s shaped like a tennis ball to reduce the strain on wrists and other body parts. It’s run on a rechargeable battery that connects to any USB port and offers nearly silent operation, unlike similar linear-motor-powered vibrators. Because it doesn’t exactly look like a traditional vibrator you could even put it in a place of honor on your bedside table or office desk.
The vibrator comes (to your house) for a pledge of $ 140. You can get two for $ 220. They are hoping to raise $ 50,000 and are nearly there so they just need that extra push to get them over the edge. I suppose, given the circumstances, we should probably help them out.

Question by Shony B: Is it possible for robots to duplicate organ systems of the body?
Are there/could there be robots that duplicate all or any of the organ systems within the human body? Do you know of any current or previous research? Where can I find information on why (or why not) robots are able to duplicate human organ systems?
Answer by gintable
Of course it is possible, the real question is: is it practical?
#1: not really energy efficient to duplicate digestion and respiratory organs. Robots do not need to undergo digestion and respiration to get an energy source when electricity is so much easier to supply.
#2: the human nervous system (and all systems) are too complex for the masters of robotics to fully comprehend. In fact, the main goal of research in robotics is to reproduce the nervous system and muscle systems in robots. All other systems are too boring and not useful to us.
#3: not consuming material for energy implies no material for a reproductive system to use as feedstock. This means no active genetailia and no active robotic uteri. The equivalents of these are factories. Robots have family situations more like that of insect colonies than humans, one queen reproduction body and every other body is a worker.

Microsoft is gearing up to market Nokia’s upcoming Verizon flagship heavily. Sources familiar with Nokia’s plans have revealed to The Verge that the company plans to launch its Lumia 928 handset in April on Verizon. Known previously as Laser, the Lumia 920 variant will include some significant changes that make it a new standalone device. We’re told that Nokia will switch to aluminum for the 928, with a xenon and LED flash combination for the 8-megapixel PureView camera.
Nokia’s new flagship will also reduce the weight and thickness compared to the Lumia 920. We’re told the Lumia 928 is 10.2mm at its thinnest point with a slightly curved back. The Lumia 928 has a squared look that’s similar to the Lumia 720 and is said to feel a lot…

“I feel a little uneasy with the title,” Mary Roach describes. The term “science author” has never quite fit. “I consider myself as more of an entrance drug to science for individuals who don’t think science is fascinating.” It’s a point well taken. After all, in spite of having penned a number of very popular titles on the topic, the author does not really have much in the way of a background, entering into guide writing game with a BA and assorted journal write-ups to her name. However while Roach does not have any sort of formal training, exactly what the writer does possess is an uncanny ability making complex scientific ideas available to the layreader, distilling them to their many basic– and commonly disgusting– core.
It’s an ability that has actually produced a good deal of necessary reading, consisting of 2010′s Packing For Mars, which ought be on the list anyone with even the remotest interest in area travel. Even with that in mind, however, the book’s not likely to gain NASA any new recruits in the near future, focused largely on the types of impact manned area travel has on the human body. It’s an effect that, normally, involves its share of bodily fluids. “Any equipment or piece of equipment that works right here on Earth in Planet gravity does not necessarily work in no gravity,” discusses Roach. “It needs to be rethought, re-tinkered, totally revamped, which includes the commode.” We’ll leave some of that to your imagination– and to Roach’s book– however let’s just say that Packing for Mars utilizes the word “snacks” in methods you ‘d likely never thought of. After the break, watch as an especially animated Roach gets deep and unclean with the oft-unexamined impacts of going into celestial spaces.

Smart Thinking: Watch Some Spaz Trying To Protect His Car From Hail Damage With His Own Flailing Body
This is a video of some guy in Argentina trying to protect his car from hail damage by breast-stroking around on top of it. At some point a friend comes out with a rug to help but quickly realizes his buddy is a moron and retreats back inside for some hot cocoa and to troll for new friends on Facebook. Of course we’re only assuming this guy is trying to protect his car from hail damage, he could just be on drugs and having the time of his life swimming on a stranger’s car.
