Charles, Transient Electronics dissolvable tattoos add new meaning to wearable electronics. I wonder if the electronics are susceptible to MRI radiation causing them to explode. Myth Busters did an experiment to investigate if this incident is plausible.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AiE3in71YEo

Personal UAVs have definitely become mainstream with hobbyists as well as the military. With user friendly microcontroller platforms like the Arduino and Raspberry Pi, anyone can participate in this cool aerial technology. I agree with this product being one of the top technologies of 2013. Chris Anderson has quit the Editorial Director job of Wired Magazine to devote his attention fulltime to DIY Drones. Here's a link to DIY Drones. http://diydrones.com/

During a teardown of the iPad Air and Microsoft Surface Pro 3 at the Medical Design & Manufacturing Show in Schaumburg, Ill., an engineer showed this "inflammatory" video about the dangers of maliciously mishandling lithium-ion batteries.
It's been two years since the Mac Mini's last appearance on iFixit's teardown table, but a newly revised version joins Apple's lineup this week.
Science fiction author Isaac Asimov may have the best rules for effective brainstorming and creativity. His never-before-published essay, "On Creativity," recently made it to the Web pages of MIT Technology Review.
Much has been made over the potentially dangerous flammability of lithium-ion batteries after major companies like Boeing, Sony, and Tesla have grappled with well-publicized battery fires. Researchers at Stanford University may have come up with a solution to this problem with a smart sensor for lithium-ion batteries that provides a warning if the battery is about to overheat or catch fire.
In this new Design News feature, "How it Works," we’re starting off by examining the inner workings of the electronic cigarette. While e-cigarettes seemed like a gimmick just two or three years ago, they’re catching fire -- so to speak. Sales topped $1 billion last year and are set to hit $10 billion by 2017. Cigarette companies are fighting back by buying up e-cigarette manufacturers.
