Beer Painted Art

“Although it’s a lot like painting with water color, beer is a little more difficult to work with because it will come off if she spills a drop of water on it, and has to be layered on just right or the painting won’t come out right, but Karen says she’s really happy with how beer painting has turned out so far. She likes to show how rich the color of brown can be, and it’s apparently fun to do. Her career as a beer painter took off after an English ad agency commissioned her to do some work that they presented to Guinness and she has since then done many other paintings for breweries, restaurants and labels of beer.” w/ photos

Bringing An Asteroid To Earth?

“Send a robot into space. Grab an asteroid. Bring it back to Earth orbit. This may sound like a crazy plan, but it was discussed quite seriously last week by a group of scientists and engineers at the California Institute of Technology. The four-day workshop was dedicated to investigating the feasibility and requirements of capturing a near-Earth asteroid, bringing it closer to our planet and using it as a base for future manned spaceflight missions. This is not something the scientists are imagining could be done some day off in the future. This is possible with the technology we have today and could be accomplished within a decade.” w/ photos + video

The Pet Scale

This electronic scale accurately measures a pet’s weight change, providing an early indication of potential health issues. As precise as models used in veterinarians’ offices, the scale has a 130 lb. capacity and can display weight in pounds, ounces, or kilograms to within 3.5 oz./0.22 lb/0.02 kg. It features a spacious stainless steel platform that is large enough for four-legged friends to stand or lie down on. A pet’s weight is automatically displayed on a tethered LCD readout with easy-to-read 1″ high numerals, a 59″-long cord, and an included bracket for optional wall mounting. A hold button locks in the weight reading until it is pressed again and a tare function automatically deducts the weight of a carrier or blanket.” w/ photo
