Gaming: two Mage the ascension low level mages walk past each other. The girl uses a simple correspondence rote to steal his wallet, the boy figures it out and uses the same rote on her... at a distance. Both now have an item belonging to the other that they can use to find each other... distance not an object.

step one: acquire CO2 gas (usually made from fermentation, or as a byproduct of burning carbon, then pressurized)

step two: get a hot source of molten salt (solar concentration towers do this well)

step three: use a process like water exchanging heat from the salt to turn to steam and spin a turbine to pressurize the CO2 gas into dry ice with a small amount of the power it's using to feed a small town.

step four: when the solar tower isn't in sunlight, use the hot salt to turn the co back into gas to spin that turbine. don't let the gas back out, save it so it can turn back into dry ice again.

step five: use this brand new turbine that is MUCH smaller than normal, making it far cheaper and easier to operate, yet can still power a small town just fine.

step six: give it a projected cost of two fifths of what a natural gas plant costs to make... more »

Clever! 

My grandfather had no legs, and owned and ran a television/appliance repair shop... had he been alive today he'd have built one of these two days after he found out about it.

Dreaming of how to duplicate that with concrete domes... the second row would have skylights (one of them with a staircase and hatch and a little patio around it). then fill in with rich soil and plant clover and dwarf fruit trees. 

line the interior with wood and go with the hobbit theme

Imagine a year or two down the road and the cops, paparazzi, nosy neighbors, land assessors, whistle blowers, shepherds, utility pole repair, brick layers, traffic analysts, delivery services, helicopter moms, and crazy stalker ex's have these as a tool.

Now imagine it's annoying and you can't hit it with a broom.

My youngest daughter found a heart shaped river rock. thinking of tumbling it till polished, then taking it down to the maker space to get it laser cut with more hearts.

sheesh, amazon wants a hundred bucks for a rock tumbling kit, I remember paying less than twenty for one (ahem) thirty years ago.

I've often wondered what other foods could adapt well to sushi belt tech? cafeteria food for instance... or pastry/donuts

so they made a 3d print from material found in a typical asteroid, and the implication is they are working on making workstations in space that can do the same thing.

This was probably powdered, sifted, then sintered with a laser or electron gun, and another layer added. It doesn't look extruded. Wonder how it will work in microgravity? can you layer powders on a free floating ball, and use a multi axis arm with a sintering tool?
