Cord management products often suffer from two problems. They're bulky and ugly. The Cableyoyo from Bluelounge Design is neither. Measuring only 9 mm thick and 80 mm square, Cableyoyo works a lot like a spool of thread. Users simply wind the cord around its central hub. Once wound, the cord coils neatly within the product's square exterior shell, which emanates from the top and bottom of the hub. This low-profile cord management system, molded from ABS, also includes a separate mounting attachment and an adhesive-backed post that snap fits into the Cableyoyo's hub. It handles low-voltage cords up to 5 mm in diameter and comes in a variety of colors to match the aesthetics of various computer systems. Dominic Symons, who designed the Cableyoyo, has now created a brand new version designed for mobile electronics and headphone wires. At just 56 ื 40 ื 12 mm Cableyoyo POP fits on the back of many MP3 players, phones and other portable electronics. It, too, works on the spool principle. But here the spool consists of a thin thermoplastic top shell and an elastomeric component that forms the hub, as well as a suction cup that attaches the POP to the electronic device. A variety of decorative stickers are available to dress up the POP's top surface. For more information, visit www.cableyoyo.com.

Inspired by the hooks a parasitic worm uses to penetrate its host's intestines, the Karp Lab has invented a flexible adhesive patch covered with microneedles that adheres well to wet, soft tissues, but doesn't cause damage when removed.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
