When you see the word "typeface," you probably don't give much thought to actual human facial features. But now you just might.
French graphic design studio Kerozen has reimagined that word in the most literal way: using human faces in the shape of letters. Both jarring and fascinating, the letters are made with bits of human likeness — hair, skin, stubble, moles, eyes, etc.
The letters were created for Kerozen's annual company greeting card to show off their design skills. Together, they spell out the studio's name Read more...More about Art, Design, Wtf, Fonts, and Watercooler
A group of American researchers may have revolutionized how we treat cancer, thanks to molecular technology that can target diseased cells from the inside.
The study tested the effect of nanomotors, miniscule devices that turn energy into motion, on live cells. Scientists found that they could potentially be used to deliver drugs non-invasively, or perform surgery inside of cells.

"As these nanomotors move around and bump into structures inside the cells, the live cells show internal mechanical responses that no one has seen before," Tom Mallouk, co-author of the study, said in a statement. "This research is a vivid demonstration that it may be possible to use synthetic nanomotors in new ways." Read more...More about Research, Cell, Cancer, Nano, and Disease
