DINOvember—really creative parenting.

This is really special. I love this creativity.  Chapeaux to Refe Tuma and his wife.

Refe explains:
“Every year, my wife and I devote the month of November to convincing our children their plastic dinosaur figures come to life while they sleep.

Why do we do this? Because in the age of iPads and Netflix, we don’t want our kids to lose their sense of wonder and imagination. In a time when the answers to all the world’s questions are a web-search away, we want our kids to experience a little mystery. All it takes is some time and energy, creativity, and a few plastic dinosaurs.

Childhood is fleeting, so let’s make sure it’s fun while it lasts.”

The World’s Lightest Material

From the uci.edu site: A team of researchers from UC Irvine, HRL Laboratories and the California Institute of Technology have developed the world’s lightest material—with a density of 0.9 mg/cc—about one hundred times lighter than Styrofoam™.

The new material redefines the limits of lightweight materials because of its unique “micro-lattice” cellular architecture. The researchers were able to make a material that consists of 99.99 percent air by designing the 0.01 percent solid at the nanometer, micron and millimeter scales. “The trick is to fabricate a lattice of interconnected hollow tubes with a wall thickness 1,000 times thinner than a human hair,” said lead author Dr. Tobias Schaedler of HRL.

Having never taken an engineering class of any kind, this is an engineering breakthrough of a magnitude which I’ll never fully comprehend. But what impressed me about it—why I’m writing about it now is the way they’re telling the story—the they way they’re presenting the news.

It’s Steve Jobs-ian in its brilliance.
