Polyester Red, Gold, and Blue ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’ Novelty Neckties

Star Trek TNG Ties

ThinkGeek has released a series of officially-licensed red (command and helm), gold (engineering and security), and blue (science and medical) novelty neckties based on the sci-fi television series Star Trek: The Next Generation. They are available to purchase online.

These 100% polyester ST:TNG ties come in three colorways: Command Red, Engineering/Ops Gold, and Sciences Blue. They have a keeper loop on the back to keep your tie looking nice and neat when you lean over to tell Guinan something confidentially over a drink. Now that we think about it, maybe her hats had sound dampening effects. They certainly cut down on the lip reading abilities of those behind her.

Cosmetics Company L’Oreal Plans to 3D Print Human Skin for Product Testing

The cosmetics company L’Oreal has partnered with biotechnology company Organovo for a plan to 3D print human skin for product testing. L’Oreal has already been developing artificial human skin grown from cultured cells that they call Episkin, but the innovation of Organovo’s 3D printing human tissues should allow the company to develop the samples more quickly.

Besides the intended use of testing cosmetic products on artificially-grown human skin rather than animals, the collaboration could also have important medical benefits in the future like treating burn victims.

Organovo produced a short video explaining their bioprinting process in 2013, and a video from 2011 explains how L’Oreal produces Episkin without 3D printing.
