Did you see the lunar eclipse on Monday night? I wish they had it rescheduled for Sunday afternoon, so all of us night-owls-who-have-to-get-up-early could watch that. But noooOOoOO. But at least the internet will save us. At least from information deficit.

Laser Cut Helical Springs
I wonder if zigzag helical springs can still travel down the stairs... Or they use the elevator?
Egg-Bot Wax Painting Upgrade
..called Electro-Kistka, where Kistka means brush. The device looks nothing like a brush, but produces wicked egg resist drawings nevertheless. (Via Hackaday)

This looks much better than the same done with a laser engraver! Less painful at least... (Via Dangerous Prototypes, video 1 and 2)
New Saturn Moon
Continuing with a lunar subject matter, this might be one of the last Saturn's newborn moons.(Via LiveScience)

It will not save from raptors, amnesia, junk mail and cat fur though.
