Meltio Engine transforms any CNC machine into a hybrid 3D print system
Hybrid manufacturing systems like DMG Mori's Lasertec 65 DED hybrid are starting to pop up here and there with the ability both to add metal via laser deposition 3D printing, and to subtract it via more traditional milling processes, giving you somewhat of a one-step process that can create the kind of slightly rough shape you expect from additive manufacture, then hone it back to perfection with CNC milling tools.

Lifestyle changes still prove effective at tackling obesity for over 60s
It is said that our metabolism slows down as we age, creating the perception that it can be harder to shed excess pounds as we grow older, but a new study has contradicted this school of thought. Researchers examining the results of a weight loss regime driven by lifestyle changes in folks over 60 years old has found they lost just as much weight as a group under 60, suggesting this approach can be effective at tackling obesity regardless of age.

Study of tarantula toxin opens door to next-gen drugs for chronic pain
Tarantula venom is not something people would normally associate with relief from pain, but strangely enough, the ingredients within it could hold the key to new medicines that offer just that, and without some of the common side effects. A new understanding of the way tarantula toxins shut down electrical signals in the spider's prey has given scientists hope of recreating this effect, but in a positive way through advanced drugs that treat chronic pain.

Study supports theory that fish fins evolved from gill arches
The skeletal structure of a fish's gill arches and paired fins are quite similar - enough so that it was once believed the fins evolved from the arches. Although that theory has since been discounted, a new study suggests it may have been right on the money.
