Water Transfer Printing is the next thing in awesome
Look out for the latest trend to be Water Transfer Printing. Just what is it you say? Water Transfer Printing or Hydrographics (commonly known as hydro dipping, hydro imaging, fluid imaging, hydrograghic printing) is a 3D decorating process. Graphics like Carbon Fiber, Wood grain, Camouflage, Geometrical patterns are applied to decorate the items such as wheels, as shown in the video below.

'Memories' pass between generations
Behaviour can be affected by events in previous generations which have been passed on through a form of genetic memory, animal studies suggest.
Experiments showed that a traumatic event could affect the DNA in sperm and alter the brains and behaviour of subsequent generations.
A Nature Neuroscience study shows mice trained to avoid a smell passed their aversion on to their “grandchildren”.
Experts said the results were important for phobia and anxiety research.
The animals were trained to fear a smell similar to cherry blossom.
The team at the Emory University School of Medicine, in the US, then looked at what was happening inside the sperm.
They showed a section of DNA responsible for sensitivity to the cherry blossom scent was made more active in the mice’s sperm.
Both the mice’s offspring, and their offspring, were “extremely sensitive” to cherry blossom and would avoid the scent, despite never having experiencing it in their lives.
Changes in brain structure were also found.
"The experiences of a parent, even before conceiving, markedly influence both structure and function in the nervous system of subsequent generations," the report concluded.
Amazon says they will have flying drone delivery soon
If you saw the 60 Minutes special Sunday evening, then you know what this is about. If you didn’t, let me fill you in. To summarize, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, announced that within just a few years, optimistically speaking, Amazon will be able to deliver what you order online, directly to you, with a flying drone right to your house. Huzzah!
