Hack of the day

Make a Water Filter Out of a Tree Branch

In our pursuit of advanced technology, we forget that mother nature has already patented all the best ideas. With just a hose clamp, some plastic tubing, and piece of tree branch, you can create a simple water filter.

A research team at MIT came up with what's dubbed a "xylem filter, " named for the xylem tissue in the tree branch that transports sap inside of a tree. Rohit Karnik, associate professor of mechanical engineering at MIT, explains:

"Today's filtration membranes have nanoscale pores that are not something you can manufacture in a garage very easily. The idea here is that we don't need to fabricate a membrane, because it's easily available. You can just take a piece of wood and make a filter out of it."

The type of wood required for the filter is called sapwood and is a common part of many different species of tree, including white pine. Just cut the branch piece, strip the bark, insert it tightly into a plastic tube, and secure it with a hose clamp. All in all, the setup would cost less than a couple dollars. To learn more about the xylem filer, check out the link below

Patent drawings

Yo cats, any of you ever had to submit patent drawings for a product?

I know that shoebox guy did some - any others here?

How detailed did you have to be.

It would be for a kind of drinking bottle and cap system...



Job Boards

I'm trying to decide where to post a job opening. It will be for a UX/UI position in Austin, Texas.

Can anyone share any experience with using a job board service (like Krop, Dribb, Bhance?) Which would attract the best talent?
They are pricey so I want to target the best audience. Thanks in advance.
