    Next to mosquitos, flies are easily the most annoying insect most of us are faced with. You can run around the house armed with a low-tech fly swatter, but that can get old pretty quickly. These days you can arm yourself for a full-scale assault on these pests with Bug-A-Salt 2.0 -- a miniature rifle you load with table salt to take them out and have a little fun working on your aim.

  • Capturing cell growth in 3-D

    Rob Matheson | MIT News Office
    13 Aug 2015 | 9:00 pm
    Replicating how cancer and other cells interact in the body is somewhat difficult in the lab. Biologists generally culture one cell type in plastic plates, which doesn’t represent the dynamic cell interactions within living organisms. Now MIT spinout AIM Biotech has developed a microfluidics device — based on years of research — that lets researchers co-culture multiple cell types in a 3-D hydrogel environment that mimics natural tissue. Among other things, the device can help researchers better study biological processes, such as cancer metastasis, and more accurately capture how…

Everything from pet items, to razors, to delectable snacks, and makeup have been sold in this format by businesses that deal exclusively in items that are packed in cardboard and left on your doorstep once a month or so.

Sometimes, however, we develop a sense of attachment to those items, and just don't want to see them discarded. Trying to sell pre-loved items to collectors, thift stores, or by holding a yard sale is a whole lot of effort with little payout. This inconvenience leads many of us to hoard things we wouldn't allow to take up valuable space in our homes. A new business concept uses technology to offer a whimsical solution.
