The guys at Freestyle Interactive ((Source)), a digital marketing group based out of the United Kingdom, have come up with an interesting infographic. Obviously, they know a thing or two about social media networks (or at least they are supposed to), and it seems that they also have a thing about superheroes. Then again, who doesn’t?

Did you know that…
- …sharks have tooth-shaped scales called denticles, and that these allow the sharks to move faster and more smoothly in the water? The denticles also prevent the algae and barnacles from accumulating on the shark’s skin.
- …a female shark can get pregnant without ever touching a male shark? This is called parthenogenesis. Only very few cases of parthenogenesis have been documented, though.
- …the eating habits of sharks are affected strongly by the ocean tides. Depending on the phase of the moon, sharks move closer to the shore to catch their prey.
- …there is a tiny shark species that is a mere 8 inches (20 centimeters) long? Pygmy sharks are among the tiniest in their family and they can produce their own light to help them hunt in deep waters.
I kid you not. Hello Kitty and Street Fighter are coming together in 2012. They may not be the strangest bedfellows that one can think of, but this “merger” is one that raises my eyebrows. I know that Hello Kitty is one of the most popular and longest lasting franchises, but I just never got it. Maybe it’s because I am not really a cat person. (Yes, sacrilege for some!)

Everyone has heard of Kickstarter by now, and every now and then, I make it a point to check out the site to see if I can find something interesting. Today, I found something that is more than interesting both in the technological sense and the humanitarian sense. Grow a New Eye is a Kickstarter project spearheaded by Tanya Vlach.
Years ago, when Hurricane Katrina hit, all eyes were turned to New Orleans. On the very same day, in another part of the United States, Tanya Vlach got into an accident that cost her her left eye. In spite of all the injuries she suffered, Tanya was fortunate to escape with her life. [Read more…] about Help Tanya Marie Grow a New Eye
3D printing has captured the hearts and imaginations of many people even though I don’t think it can be considered mainstream yet. At least I don’t think that you can easily get hold of a 3D printer. There is no doubt about the technology’s ability to bring out the creativity in people, though. From printing tiny versions of yourself to printing in bone – the applications of 3D printing are fun! I think my favorite is the 3D chocolate printer – no one can deny the appeal and usefulness of that! [Read more…] about First 3D Printed Plane Takes Flight
