Bleh. It's the middle of the week. Two-and-a-half days down, and two-and-a-half more to go. For a little bit of inspiration (and a bit of distraction), check out this week's round of neat-o links from around the office:

NASA Soldering in Space NASA Soldering in Space

Years "Years" - Wood Rings Used to Make Sound
By using an Arduino and some other awesome techno-bits, Bartholomäus Traubeck created a device that translates wood's year rings into sound by analyzing the rings' strength, thickness, and rate of growth.
