Behold the Non-Squeezing Property Of Contact Balls

The field of mathematics often supplies papers that demand attention even from casual observers. Here’s a new one: “Non-Squeezing Property Of Contact Balls,” Sheng-Fu Chiu, arXiv 1405.1178v1, May 6, 2014. The author is at Northwestern University. Here’s detail from the study: BONUS (unrelated): “IMPROVEMENT IN MACHINES FOR SQUEEZING PUDDLERS BALLS,” US Patent #190,385, granted to E. […]

Sensing and Sensibility: “Development of Anal Position Detecting System for New-Toilet System”

Technology for the elderly grows more ambitious and, arguably, more adventurous. This paper sets a new standard: “Development of Anal Position Detecting System for New-Toilet System,” Koshi Tokoro, Keisuke Fujihira, and Hiroshi Kobayashi [Department of Mechanical Engineering, Tokyo University of Science, Tokyo, Japan], paper presented at the 2013 Seventh International Conference on Sensing Technology, December […]
