Three Cubes Colliding: A 3D Printed Kite Spectacular (VIDEO) »

Using 1,700 3D-printed joints, CTF3 (Cuben Fiber) fabric and feather-light carbon rods, this seemingly heavy and eight-foot cube is actually a kite that can fly to the sky.

The piece is simultaneously a complex and mesmerizing formal accomplishment and a light, airy ode to innocent play.

art + design + science + technology = This 3D-printed kite

“This is causing universities to rethink their value to students,” says Professor Koller, who is from Stanford University’s computer science department. The most prestigious universities are always going to have enough demand for places - but the emergence of high-quality online courses could be tougher for middle-ranking institutions. Why would you pay high fees to sit through a mediocre lecture, when you could go online and watch world experts at another university, even if it’s in another country? “The universities in the middle will really have to think about their proposition,” she says.

NYC Kids Spend Estimated $4.2 Million On Phone Storage »

$22,800. That is how much money the New York Post estimates New York City high school students hand over each day to make sure their cell phones are safe while they are in class. And all because the Department of Education continues to be incredibly stubborn about its cellphone policy. Even sadder is that most of the kids paying to keep their phones locked up could really use that extra money for things like lunch.

Even those students don’t hesitate to cut back on food for the sake of their smartphones! So, a part of digital culture is evolving?!

As you educate yourself about your own talent and ambitions, you graduate from doing a task right to doing the right task. It takes some experience to realize that a lot of work is better left undone. It might be busywork that is performed out of habit, or it might be work that is heading in the wrong direction. Working smart means making sure you are spending your time on jobs that are effective and that actually need to be done.
