To make up for the past few weeks of not having much, apparently the internet decided to dump a crapload of interesting content on me and now it's taking up all my browser tabs. I was busy Tuesday and couldn't be bothered.
http://www.iflscience.com/health-and-medicine/scientists-regenerate-living-organs-first-time This is a big one, usually internal damage is basically permanent. Nothing on the inside of the body can really heal except for the liver. Even if it's just part of the body being revamped, it's still a heck of a first step.

I look forward to all of the terrible stupid awesome things that people use these for. And the actual good ideas (like powered parachuting)
http://www.iflscience.com/technology/coming-soon-tabletop-fog-screens-3d-interactions Still not all the way to the free-floating holograms, but at least people are trying. Still cool.
