Real Clever Science

My name is Ari Einbinder. This is the journal of my travels into the realm of science and science education.
I've worked at science museums in NY (NYSCI and AMNH) and across Europe. Currently I'm studying "museology" (aka museum studies) at UW in Seattle, WA. I'm also one of Tumblr's Science Section editors.

I discuss anything that fascinates me, but popular topics include evolution, transhumanism (e.g BCI), futurism, psychology, quantum computing, climate change, sustainability, genetic engineering and occasionally politics - to name a few.

Printing a New Lease on Life

A 3D-printed exoskeleton gives a little girl use of her arms

Just in case landing on another planet wasn’t cool enough for you today: Emma is two years old, and she was born with a rare disease called arthrogryposis. It caused her to not be able to raise her arms above her head or move and play like a normal child. Thanks to a 3-D printed exoskeleton system called WREX, she can now do that.

The best part? If a piece breaks or needs adjustment as she grows, they can print a new one in no time at all. A heartwarming application of technology.

Previously: An amazing robotic exoskeleton that can help paraplegics walk.

I’ve been keeping my eye on 3D printers since I was first blown away by the idea of them around 2006/2007.  Great to see the amazing technology finally being applied.

This is everything I love. Science is beautiful.
